Brief Summary:
This study is a prospective, perioperative evaluation of hemodynamic and respiratory parameters in patients undergoing retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomies.

Condition or disease
Adrenal Tumors

Detailed Description:
Due to their underlying disease, patients with adrenal tumors are prone to episodes of hyper- and hypotension. Furthermore, excessive hypercarbia and an increased arterial-alveolar CO2 difference can be seen during these operations.
