abstract

  • The VA adrenalectomy population has more preoperative risk factors and substantially higher unadjusted 30-day postoperative morbidity and mortality rates than the PS population. After risk adjustment, there is no significant difference in morbidity between the VA and the PS. A larger study population is needed to compare risk-adjusted mortality between the VA and PS.
