A condition caused by prolonged exposure to excess levels of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) or other GLUCOCORTICOIDS from endogenous or exogenous sources. It is characterized by upper body OBESITY; OSTEOPOROSIS; HYPERTENSION; DIABETES MELLITUS; HIRSUTISM; AMENORRHEA; and excess body fluid. Endogenous Cushing syndrome or spontaneous hypercortisolism is divided into two groups, those due to an excess of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN and those that are ACTH-independent.
A benign neoplasm of the ADRENAL CORTEX. It is characterized by a well-defined nodular lesion, usually less than 2.5 cm. Most adrenocortical adenomas are nonfunctional. The functional ones are yellow and contain LIPIDS. Depending on the cell type or cortical zone involved, they may produce ALDOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and/or ANDROSTENEDIONE.
A usually benign, well-encapsulated, lobular, vascular tumor of chromaffin tissue of the ADRENAL MEDULLA or sympathetic paraganglia. The cardinal symptom, reflecting the increased secretion of EPINEPHRINE and NOREPINEPHRINE, is HYPERTENSION, which may be persistent or intermittent. During severe attacks, there may be HEADACHE; SWEATING, palpitation, apprehension, TREMOR; PALLOR or FLUSHING of the face, NAUSEA and VOMITING, pain in the CHEST and ABDOMEN, and paresthesias of the extremities. The incidence of malignancy is as low as 5% but the pathologic distinction between benign and malignant pheochromocytomas is not clear. (Dorland, 27th ed; DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1298)
An anterior pituitary hormone that stimulates the ADRENAL CORTEX and its production of CORTICOSTEROIDS. ACTH is a 39-amino acid polypeptide of which the N-terminal 24-amino acid segment is identical in all species and contains the adrenocorticotrophic activity. Upon further tissue-specific processing, ACTH can yield ALPHA-MSH and corticotrophin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP).
A syndrome characterized by HYPERPIGMENTATION, enlarging pituitary mass, visual defects secondary to compression of the OPTIC CHIASM, and elevated serum ACTH. It is caused by the expansion of an underlying ACTH-SECRETING PITUITARY ADENOMA that grows in the absence of feedback inhibition by adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS, usually after ADRENALECTOMY.
A group of CORTICOSTEROIDS that affect carbohydrate metabolism (GLUCONEOGENESIS, liver glycogen deposition, elevation of BLOOD SUGAR), inhibit ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE secretion, and possess pronounced anti-inflammatory activity. They also play a role in fat and protein metabolism, maintenance of arterial blood pressure, alteration of the connective tissue response to injury, reduction in the number of circulating lymphocytes, and functioning of the central nervous system.
The outer layer of the adrenal gland. It is derived from MESODERM and comprised of three zones (outer ZONA GLOMERULOSA, middle ZONA FASCICULATA, and inner ZONA RETICULARIS) with each producing various steroids preferentially, such as ALDOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and ANDROSTENEDIONE. Adrenal cortex function is regulated by pituitary ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN.
A peptide of about 41 amino acids that stimulates the release of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. CRH is synthesized by neurons in the PARAVENTRICULAR NUCLEUS of the HYPOTHALAMUS. After being released into the pituitary portal circulation, CRH stimulates the release of ACTH from the PITUITARY GLAND. CRH can also be synthesized in other tissues, such as PLACENTA; ADRENAL MEDULLA; and TESTIS.

Pituitary ACTH Hypersecretion
The active sympathomimetic hormone from the ADRENAL MEDULLA. It stimulates both the alpha- and beta- adrenergic systems, causes systemic VASOCONSTRICTION and gastrointestinal relaxation, stimulates the HEART, and dilates BRONCHI and cerebral vessels. It is used in ASTHMA and CARDIAC FAILURE and to delay absorption of local ANESTHETICS.
Adrenal Cortex Function Tests
Abnormally low potassium concentration in the blood. It may result from potassium loss by renal secretion or by the gastrointestinal route, as by vomiting or diarrhea. It may be manifested clinically by neuromuscular disorders ranging from weakness to paralysis, by electrocardiographic abnormalities (depression of the T wave and elevation of the U wave), by renal disease, and by gastrointestinal disorders. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Adrenal Hyperplasia, Congenital
A group of inherited disorders of the ADRENAL GLANDS, caused by enzyme defects in the synthesis of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) and/or ALDOSTERONE leading to accumulation of precursors for ANDROGENS. Depending on the hormone imbalance, congenital adrenal hyperplasia can be classified as salt-wasting, hypertensive, virilizing, or feminizing. Defects in STEROID 21-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 11-BETA-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE; 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASES); TESTOSTERONE 5-ALPHA-REDUCTASE; or steroidogenic acute regulatory protein; among others, underlie these disorders.

Maternal adrenocortical hormones maintain the early development of pancreatic B cells in the fetal rat. (1/1561)To investigate the effect of maternal adrenocortical hormones on the development of fetal pancreatic islet cells, pregnant rats were adrenalectomised on d 6 of gestation. On d 12-16 the growth patterns of fetal insulin-producing B cells, glucagon-producing A cells, and somatostatin-producing D cells were observed histometrically. Maternal adrenalectomy resulted in growth retardation of fetal B cells on d 12-15. Maternal corticosterone therapy prevented this retardation. Maternal adrenalectomy, however, did not affect the developmental patterns of A and D cells. By Western blotting and immunohistochemistry, glucocorticoid receptors were demonstrated to be present in the islet cells from d 12 to d 15. These results suggest that maternal adrenocortical hormones, glucocorticoids in particular, maintain the early development of fetal pancreatic B cells through their specific intracellular glucocorticoid receptor.

Pharmacodynamic actions of (S)-2-[4,5-dihydro-5-propyl-2-(3H)-furylidene]-1,3-cyclopentanedione (oudenone). (2/1561)The pharmacodynamic actions of (S)-2-[4,5-dihydro-5-propyl-2(3H)-furylidene]-1,3-cyclopentanedione (oudenone) were studied in both anesthetized animals and isolated organs. Oudenone (10--40 mg/kg i.v.) induced an initial rise in blood pressure followed by a prolonged hypotension in the anesthetized rats. In unanesthetized spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR), oudenone (5--200 mg/kg p.o.) caused a dose-related decrease in the systolic blood pressure. The initial pressor effect was diminished by pretreatments with phentolamine, guanethidine, hexamethonium and was abolished in the pithed rats. In addition, intracisternal administrations of oudenone (100--600 mug/kg) showed a marked increase in blood pressure in the anesthetized rats, suggesting that the pressor effect may be due to centrally mediated actions. Oudenone, given intra-arterially into the femoral artery (400--800 mug/kg), caused a long-lasting vasodilation in anesthetized dogs. At a relatively high dose (40 mg/kg i.v.), oudenone antagonized all pressor responses to autonomic agents and central vagus nerve stimulation in anesthetized rats and dogs, however, oudenone showed no anti-cholinergic,-histaminergic, beta-adrenergic and adrenergic neuron blocking properties.

Primary aldosteronism with aldosterone-producing adrenal adenoma in a pregnant woman. (3/1561)A 30-year-old pregnant woman complained of muscle weakness at 29 weeks' gestation. She was hypertensive with severe hypokalemia. Lower plasma renin activity and higher aldosterone level than the normal values in pregnancy suggested primary aldosteronism. A cesarean delivery was performed at 31 weeks' gestation because of pulmonary congestion. The neonatal course was uncomplicated. The laparoscopic adrenalectomy for a 2.0-cm right adrenal adenoma resulted in normalizing of her blood pressure and serum potassium level. Although primary aldosteronism is rare, especially during pregnancy, it should be always considered as one of etiologies of hypertension in pregnancy. (+info)
Activation of the adult mode of ovine growth hormone receptor gene expression by cortisol during late fetal development. (4/1561)The developmental and tissue-specific regulation of growth hormone receptor (GHR) mRNA expression is complex and involves alternate leader exon usage. The transcript composition of hepatic GHR mRNA has therefore been determined in fetal sheep during late gestation and after experimental manipulation of fetal plasma cortisol levels by fetal adrenalectomy and exogenous cortisol infusion, using RNase protection assays and a riboprobe containing exons 1A, 2, and 3 of the ovine GHR gene. Expression of the adult liver-specific GHR mRNA transcript containing exon 1A was not detected earlier than 138 days of gestation (term 145 +/-2 days). Thereafter, expression of this leader exon increased and accounted for 25-30% of the total GHR mRNA in the fetal liver at term. Hepatic GHR mRNA derived from leader exons other than 1A was detectable at 97 days and increased in abundance toward term in parallel with the normal prepartum rise in fetal plasma cortisol. Abolition of this cortisol surge by fetal adrenalectomy prevented both the activation of exon 1A expression and the prepartum rise in GHR mRNA derived from the other leader exons in fetal ovine liver. Conversely, raising cortisol levels by exogenous infusion earlier in gestation prematurely activated exon 1A expression and enhanced the abundance of GHR mRNA transcripts derived from the other leader exons. Cortisol therefore appears to activate the adult mode of GHR gene expression in fetal ovine liver during late gestation. These observations have important implications for the maturation of the somatotrophic axis and for the onset of GH-dependent growth after birth. (+info)
Glucocorticoid enhances interleukin-1-induced pressor response in freely moving rats through its effect on nitric oxide release. (5/1561)We investigated whether changes in nitric oxide (NO) release might be responsible for the modulation by glucocorticoids of the pressor response to i.p. injection of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) in freely moving rats. In such rats, IL-1beta (10 microgram/kg) induced a biphasic pressor response, with a rise in the plasma concentration of NOx (NO2(-) and NO3(-): metabolites of NO) during the second phase. Systemic pretreatment with an exogenous glucocorticoid, dexamethasone (0.5 mg/kg), enhanced the second phase of the pressor response and completely suppressed the increase in plasma NOx. Treatment with Nomega-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME, a nonspecific NO synthase inhibitor), enhanced the pressor response while attenuating the increase in plasma NOx. After bilateral adrenalectomy, IL-1beta induced a smaller pressor response, but a larger increase in plasma NOx; dexamethasone reversed these changes. Our results suggest that endogenous NO moderates the pressor response to IL-1beta in freely moving rats, and that glucocorticoids enhance the IL-1beta-induced pressor response at least in part by reducing endogenous NO release.

Endogenous glucocorticoids protect against cytokine-mediated lethality during viral infection. (6/1561)Certain cytokines activate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis for glucocorticoid release, and these hormones can protect against cytokine-mediated pathologies. However, endogenous activation of such a pathway has not been established during infections. A prominent glucocorticoid response peaks 36 h following murine CMV (MCMV) infection, coincident with circulating levels of the cytokines IL-12, IFN-gamma, TNF, and IL-6, and dependent on IL-6 for maximal release. These studies examined functions of the hormone induction. Mice rendered glucocorticoid deficient by adrenalectomy were more susceptible than intact mice to MCMV-induced lethality, and the increased sensitivity was reversed by hormone replacement. Lack of endogenous glucocorticoids resulted in increases in IL-12, IFN-gamma, TNF, and IL-6 production, as well as in mRNA expression for a wider range of cytokines, also including IL-1 alpha and IL-1 beta. Viral burdens did not increase, and actually decreased, in the livers of glucocorticoid-deficient mice. TNF, but not IFN-gamma, was required for increased lethality in the absence of endogenous hormone. These results conclusively demonstrate the importance of induced endogenous glucocorticoids in protection against life-threatening effects resulting from infection-elicited cytokine responses. Taken together with the dependence on induced IL-6, they document existence of an immune system-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis pathway for regulating endogenous responses to viral infections.

Mechanisms underlying the anti-inflammatory actions of central corticotropin-releasing factor. (7/1561)Immune activation of hypothalamic corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) provides a negative feedback mechanism to modulate peripheral inflammatory responses. We investigated whether central CRF attenuates endothelial expression of intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) and leukocyte recruitment during endotoxemia in rats and determined its mechanisms of action. As measured by intravital microscopy, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induced a dose-dependent increase in leukocyte rolling, adhesion, and emigration in mesenteric venules, which was associated with upregulation of endothelial ICAM-1 expression. Intracisternal injection of CRF abrogated both the increased expression of ICAM-1 and leukocyte recruitment. Intravenous injection of the specific CRF receptor antagonist astressin did not modify leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions induced by a high dose of LPS but enhanced leukocyte adhesion induced by a low dose. Blockade of endogenous glucocorticoids but not alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) receptors reversed the inhibitory action of CRF on leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions during endotoxemia. In conclusion, cerebral CRF blunts endothelial upregulation of ICAM-1 and attenuates the recruitment of leukocytes during endotoxemia. The anti-inflammatory effects of CRF are mediated by adrenocortical activation and additional mechanisms independent of alpha-MSH. (+info)
Fetal rat adrenal steroidogenesis and steroid transfer to adrenalectomized mother. (8/1561)On the 22nd day of gestation in rats, fetuses of acutely adrenalectomized mothers were injected subcutaneously with 0.43 muCi 4-14C-progesterone in 0.05 ml saline. Ten and 20 min after injection to fetuses, samples were taken to determine the 14C-progesterone metabolites in the plasma and adrenal glands. After extraction of the samples taken, the metabolites were separated by two-dimensional thin-layer chromatography and identified by autoradiography. 11-deoxycorticosterone, 18-hydroxy-11-deoxycorticosterone, corticosterone and 11beta-hydroxyprogesterone were identified in the plasma of injected fetuses, and, in far smaller amounts, in the plasma of their mothers. The plasma of noninjected fetuses also contained very small amounts of these corticoids. The fetal adrenal glands contained far smaller amounts of radioactive steroids than the fetal plasma did. The results obtained show that steroids of fetal origin can cross the placenta in and out, constituting evidence that the fetal adrenal glands are the only source of the plasma corticoids of their adrenalectomized mothers.

Laparoscopic adrenalectomy - a review of initial 24 consecutive patients. - Semantic Scholar
AIM To analyze patient demographics, pathology, surgical procedure and outcome in initial 24 consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy in our department. METHODS Twenty four patients underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy between September 2000 and August 2005. There were 12 males and 12 females with a mean age of 44.6 years (range 25-68 years). The indications for adrenalectomy were pheochromocytoma (13 patients), Cushings syndrome (5 patients), myelolipoma (2 patients), adrenal cyst (2 patients), aldosteronoma (1 patient) and adrenal incidentaloma (1 patient). Nineteen of our patients with functioning adrenal tumours were prepared preoperatively for periods ranging up to 2 weeks by the endocrinologist. All laparoscopic adrenalectomies were performed via lateral transperitoneal approach using standard four-port technique. Patients with pheochromocytoma and Cushings syndrome were monitored in the surgical intensive care unit during immediate postoperative period. The clinical and
Comparison Between Posterior Retroperitoneoscopic Adrenalectomy and Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy - Full Text View -...
Since 1992, transabdominal LA(laparoscopic adrenalectomy) has been a standard method of adrenalectomy. This traditional method has been used widely because this procedure provides wide view of the whole abdomen which is familiar to surgeons. But due to its unique location at retroperitoneum, adrenal is still not easy to approach. So various retroperitoneal approaches were designed and adjusted. Among those, PRA(posterior retroperitoneal adrenalectomy) has showed good outcomes in many institutes. PRA facilitates direct approach to kidney and adrenal gland, and so operative time can be shortened. But there has been no randomized controlled trial between these two methods.. Therefore, as experienced surgeons in both methods, we want to practice this study. ...
The effect of adrenalectomy on cardiovascular morbidity in adrenal tumor patients with subclinical Cushings syndrome:...
Introduction: Patients with subclinical Cushing s syndrome (SCS) present with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, however, the beneficial effect of adrenalectomy on cardiovascular risk factors is uncertain.. Objective: Systematic meta-analysis to determine the effect of adrenalectomy vs conservative follow-up on cardiovascular risk factors in patients with adrenal tumors and SCS.. Methods: We searched 6 databases through July 2014. Pairs of independent reviewers selected studies and appraised the risk of bias. We included and extracted studies with at least five SCS patients with adrenal tumors undergoing adrenalectomy where outcomes of interest were measured before and after surgery. Outcomes of interest included hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, and obesity. In majority of studies, improvement of an outcome was defined as postsurgical decrease in dose, number or discontinuation of medications used to treat the comorbidity.. Results: Definition of SCS was heterogeneous among ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Corticosteroids and ACTH are not required for compensatory adrenal growth. AU - Engeland, W. C.. AU - Shinsako, J.. AU - Dallman, M. F.. PY - 1975. Y1 - 1975. N2 - The authors tested the hypothesis that unilateral adrenalectomy results in decreased glucocorticoid secretion, reflexly elevated ACTH secretion, and, consequently, compensatory adrenal growth. Plasma ACTH and corticosterone and right adrenal weight were measured during the first 10 days after left adrenalectomy or sham adrenalectomy in young male rats. There is a decrease in plasma corticosterone after unilateral adrenalectomy compared to sham adrenalectomy that persists for 1 h. ACTH is elevated only at 2 h after unilateral adrenalectomy compared to sham operated rats. Treatment with dexamethasone, shown to abolish the ACTH and corticosterone responses to laparotomy with intestinal traction, resulted in significantly increased adrenal weight after unilateral adrenalectomy by 6 h (wet or dry weight), and at 24 h. ...

N2 - Electrophysiological and chemical methods were used to determine the Na and K transport properties of the isolated cortical collecting duct (CCD) of control and adrenalectomized (ADX) rabbits. Net fluxes of Na (J(Na)) and K (-J(K)) in controls were 5.7 and 3.2 pmol·mm-1·min-1 and in ADX were 1.0 and 0.7 pmol·mm-1·min-1, respectively, similar to electrically determined rates. In separate experiments, blind impalement of cells from adrenal intact (group 1), ADX (group 2), and ADX rabbits treated with deoxycorticosterone (group 3) allowed identification of two distinct cell types, majority cells (MA) and minority cells (MI). In all groups, MA were distinguished from MI by a relatively high basolateral membrane potential (-V(b)), low apical membrane fractional resistance (FR(a)), and presence of apical ...
Hemodynamic changes and catecholamine release during laparoscopic adrenalectomy for pheochromocytoma. - Joris Jean
en] We investigated hemodynamics and plasma catecholamine concentrations in eight consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic adrenalectomy for suspected pheochromocytoma. The same anesthesia protocol was used in all patients: a continuous infusion of sufentanil 0.5 microg x kg(-1) x h(-1) and isoflurane 0.4% (end-tidal) in 50% N2O/O2. Systolic arterial pressure was maintained between 120 and 160 mm Hg by adjusting an infusion of nicardipine, a calcium-channel blocker, while tachycardia (,100 bpm) was treated by 1-mg boluses of atenolol. Hemodynamics (thermodilution technique) and plasma catecholamine concentrations were measured before surgery, after the induction of anesthesia, after turning the patient to the lateral position, during pneumoperitoneum, during tumor manipulation, after adrenalectomy, and at the end of surgery. Two events resulted in significant catecholamine release: creation of the pneumoperitoneum and adrenal gland manipulation. As a consequence, a twofold increase in ...

MP03-01: Adrenalectomy: Shouldnt Urologists Be Doing More? | AUA University
View Poster. INTRODUCTION. Adrenalectomy is an operation performed by both urologists and general surgeons, however the majority are performed by general surgeons. We wanted to investigate whether there was a difference in outcomes based on surgical specialty performing the procedure. If no differences exist, an argument can be made that urologists should be doing more adrenalectomies. METHODS. The National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (NSQIP) Participant Use File (PUF) was queried to extract all cases of adrenalectomies performed during the years 2011-2015. The following two CPT codes were used: 60540 (open) and 60650 (laparoscopic). The data were stratified by surgical specialty who performed the adrenalectomy (urology or general surgery). Our outcomes of interest included post-surgical complications, reoperations, 30-day readmission, mortality, and hospital length of stay. RESULTS. A total of 3358 patients who underwent adrenalectomy were included, 3012 (90%) by a general surgeon and ...

Adrenalectomy outcomes are superior with the participation of residents and fellows
Author(s): Seib, CD; Greenblatt, DY; Campbell, MJ; Shen, WT; Gosnell, JE; Clark, OH; Duh, QY | Abstract: Background Adrenalectomy is a complex procedure performed in many settings, with and without residents and fellows. Patients often ask, Will trainees be participating in my operation? and seek reassurance that their care will not be adversely affected. The purpose of this study was to determine the association between trainee participation and adrenalectomy perioperative outcomes. Study Design We performed a cohort study of patients who underwent adrenalectomy from the 2005 to 2011 American College of Surgeons NSQIP database. Trainee participation was classified as none, resident, or fellow, based on postgraduate year of the assisting surgeon. Associations between trainee participation and outcomes were determined via multivariate linear and logistic regression. Results Of 3,694 adrenalectomies, 732 (19.8%) were performed by an attending surgeon with no trainee, 2,315 (62.7%) involved a resident,
Predictive Factors for Conversion After Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy - SAGES Abstract Archives
Hector R Romero, MD, Victoria Cerecedo, MD, Mauricio Sierra, MD, David Velazquez, MD PhD, Nicholas Williams, FRACS, Alexander P Heinze. Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubiran. Background. Laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA) is associated with several advantages over the open equivalent such as less postoperative pain, use of lesser dose of analgesics, decreased morbity, better cosmesis, an earlier return to work and regular activities, shorter hospital stay, reduced costs and greater patient satisfaction. However, the procedure has also been associated with limitations such as tumors larger than 6 cm, the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma or malignant lesions. There´s still ongoing debate on which is the appropriate limit for laparoscopic resection regarding tumor size. It is traditionally said that LA should be avoided if evidence of periadrenal infiltration is recognized preoperatively because invasion may compromise peripheral structures and because the capsule should ...
The Effect of Laparoscopy On Indications for Adrenalectomy At a Community Hospital - SAGES Abstract Archives
During the study period 79 patients met inclusion criteria with an average age of 54 years (range 21-83). Average ASA score was 3 and 66% of patients were female. A laparoscopic approach was employed in 95% with a conversion rate of 3.8%. Average operating room time was 127 minutes (range 50-307) and blood loss of 114ml (range 10-1600). Unilateral adrenalectomy was performed in all but 1 patient who underwent bilateral adrenalectomy for pheochromocytoma. The most common indication for surgery was primary hyperaldosteronism caused by an aldosterone producing adenoma (63%). Average postoperative length of stay was 2.4 days (range 1-15). Morbidity and mortality were 13% and 0 respectively. Tumor size was significantly higher in patients with nonfunctional tumors (4.4cm vs. 2.9cm, p,0.003 ...

1. The effects of replacing a 1% NaCl drinking solution with Na+-free water for 2 days on body weight and fluid and electrolyte balances were studied in adrenalectomized and sham-operated rats.. 2. Eight weeks after operation, after the animals had been drinking Na+-free water for 2 days, some adrenalectomized animals (about 75%; designated group 1) experienced body weight losses which were outside the 99% confidence limits for the sham-operated rats (- 9.2 to + 5.3 g) whereas the remainder (designated group 2) were indistinguishable from the controls.. 3. The body weight loss in group 1 was associated with negative fluid, Na+ and K+ balances. In group 2 rats, fluid balance was maintained as well as in the sham-operated rats, but their handling of Na+ and K+ was different.. 4. In a separate experiment, plasma aldosterone, corticosterone, catecholamine and solute concentrations were measured in adrenalectomized rats from groups 1 and 2 (selected on the basis of body weight loss whilst drinking ...

Increase of 5-HT7 (serotonin-7) and 5-HT1A (serotonin-1A) receptor mRNA expression in rat hippocampus after adrenalectomy. -...
The brain 5-HT (serotonin) system and circulating corticosteroids are in close interaction and both are implicated in the pathogenesis of affective disorders. The 5-HT1A receptor is thought to play a major role in this relationship. However, the recently cloned 5-HT7 receptor may also be involved, given its pharmacological similarities to the 5-HT1A receptor and its high expression in corticolimbic structures. Using in situ hybridization histochemistry, we have investigated 5-HT7 and 5-HT1A receptor mRNA expression in selected areas of the rat brain 7 days post-adrenalectomy. 5-HT7 receptor mRNA was increased in CA1 and CA3b after adrenalectomy, with no alterations in other hippocampal subfields or in retrosplenial cortex. Adrenalectomy was associated with a marked increase of 5-HT1A receptor mRNA in dentate gyrus, CA3 and CA2, but not in CA1, nor in the raphe. These data indicate that circulating adrenal steroids have a inhibitory role on the expression of hippocampal 5-HT7 receptors as well as 5-HT1A

A single center experience of adrenalectomy for adrenal tumors
Sixteen patients (eight males and eight females) underwent an adrenalectomy. The demographic composition of patients is summarized in Table 1. The patients mean age was 58.00± 11.34 years (range, 33-76 years). Three patients had undergone previous abdominal surgery; a 54-year-old female who underwent surgery due to an ectopic pregnancy 25 years ago, a 68-year-old female who underwent an appendectomy 50 years ago, and a 69-year-old female who underwent a hysterectomy with uterine leiomyoma 25 years ago. Regarding other comorbidities, 11 patients had hypertension, two of which had diabetes mellitus. Among patients with both hypertension and diabetes mellitus, one patient had a history of microvascular angina. Among the other patients with hypertension, one patient had angina pectoris, one had unstable angina, one had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and one had both chronic renal failure and cerebral infarction. Regarding the location of the tumors, the tumor was positioned on the right adrenal ...
Adrenalectomy - Tests & Procedures
One adrenal gland sits above each of your kidneys. Your two adrenal glands produce various hormones that help regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, blood sugar and other essential functions. If a noncancerous (benign) adrenal tumor or adrenal cancer is discovered, you may require an adrenalectomy (uh-dree-nul-EK-tuh-me) to remove the adrenal gland that has the tumor. If one adrenal gland is removed, the other takes over full function without the need for supplemental medications.
Adrenalectomy: Before Your Childs Surgery
Adrenalectomy is surgery to remove all or part of one or both adrenal glands. The glands are above the kidneys. They make hormones that affect nearly every organ in the body. These hormones include adrenaline and cortisol. They do many things in the body. For example, they help control blood pressure. They help the body deal with stress. And they control the breakdown of fats and proteins in the liver. This surgery may be done to remove a tumour that is or isnt cancer. It also may be done for people with Cushings syndrome, a problem that causes too much cortisol in the body. It may be done to remove a tumour that makes too much adrenaline.. The surgery may be done through a single cut (incision). This is called open surgery. Or your child may have laparoscopic surgery. To do this, the doctor puts a lighted tube, or scope, and other tools through several small cuts.. If your child has laparoscopic surgery, he or she may be able to leave the hospital the next day.

Papel actual de la linfadenectomía y la adrenalectomía en la cirugía radical del cáncer renal
RIOS GONZALEZ, Emilio y MARTINEZ-PINEIRO LORENZO, Luís. Current role of lymphadenectomy and adrenalectomy in radical surgery for renal cancer. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.5, pp.562-568. ISSN 0210-4806.. Radical nephrectomy is the only curative treatment for renal cell cancer. Standard treatment includes ipsilateral adrenalectomy and lymph node dissection. In recent years, development of nephron-sparing surgery and early detection of small renal tumors has led to question this approach. The role of lymphadenectomy and adrenalectomy in surgical treatment of renal cancer is reviewed.. Palabras clave : Renal cell cancer; Lymphadenectomy; Adrenalectomy. ...

The administration of 3-methylcholanthrene to rats is accompanied by an increase in the incorporation of orotic acid-14C into the 45 S cytoplasmic particle in the liver. The elevation reaches a maximum at 15 hr after the injection of the polycyclic hydrocarbon and diminishes to control values by 36 hr. This effect was also observed in adrenalectomized animals, eliminating any role of the adrenal corticosteroids in the phenomenon. In addition, the turnover of 18 and 28 S ribosomal RNA in liver cytoplasm was elevated after administration of the polycyclic hydrocarbon. These results suggest that the synthesis of ribosomal constituents, in particular, ribosomal RNA, may play an important role in the induction phenomenon observed in liver after administration of 3-methylcholanthrene.. ...

Experimental Essential Hypertension in the Rat? | Clinical Science
1. A human urinary thermostable glycoprotein (ABG-TsU) believed to be a homologue of the plasma aldosterone-binding globulin (ABG) was isolated and purified by differential ultra-filtration, ion-exchange chromatography and gel filtration to electrophoretic homogeneity; it showed a charge heterogeneity in electrofocussing.. 2. ABG-TsU was administered intraperitoneally to male rats in small daily doses (7 μg/day per rat). Sustained hypertension developed in 5-8 days.. 3. The treated rats showed no changes in plasma electrolytes, aldosterone or plasma renin activity; however, a significant increase in heart weight was observed.. 4. This hypertension appears to be adrenal dependent since it is prevented by bilateral adrenalectomy or administration of an aldosterone antagonist, but not by adrenalectomy when aldosterone is given concomitantly with ABG-TsU.. ...

Adrenalectomy Versus Follow-up in Patients With Subclinical Cushings Syndrome - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Incidental findings of adrenal tumours,incidentalomas, occur in 1-5 % in the general population and 10-25 % of these patients will exhibit biochemical mild hypercortisolism. Although the patients do not have clinical signs of classical Cushings syndrome, they have an increased risk for hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis and obesity.. The hypothesis of the study is, that surgery of the adrenal adenoma responsible for the increased secretion of cortisol, will in part cure or ameliorate the metabolic syndrome. ...
2016 Abstract Details - SOAP
A 27 year old female G2 p1001 @ 7 week gestation was referred to our institution without obstetric services for persistent hypertension, palpitations, headache, lightheadedness, and fatigue and a family history of pheochromocytoma. Initial 24 hour urine revealed elevated dopamine, epinephrine and plasma norepinephrine levels. An abdominal MRI showed a 1.9 x 2.2 cm mass in the right adrenal gland along with several enlarged epigastric lymph nodes. The patient was started on phenoxybenzamine and labetalol. A laparoscopic adrenalectomy was planned at 15 week gestation pending stable hemodynamics. Surgery planned to have gastroenterology do an upper endoscopy with biopsy of the epigastric lymph nodes a week prior to her surgery, however, at the insistence of the obstetric anesthesiologist, the endoscopic procedure was scheduled at the time of the laparoscopy. Endocrinology was followed her vital signs on an outpatient basis prior to surgery, which required an increase in alpha and beta blockade due ...

1. When the suprarenal glands are removed from drakes they die after a mean interval of about 8 hours. They can be kept alive by the hourly injection of cortical extract. The amount of extract which must be injected varies at different times in the year, becoming much larger during the breeding season.. 2. The testes of the drake out of the breeding season weigh 1 to 4 grams. From January to May they increase in size to about 80 grams. During June they rapidly decline to the former small size. The curve of change in weight is closely parallel to the curve for the amount of cortical extract required after adrenalectomy, but the changes in the latter curve precede those in the former.. 3. After adrenalectomy castrated drakes require one third to one half of the amount of cortical extract necessary to keep normal birds alive during the breeding season. The increase in requirement of cortical extract during the breeding season is not due to the large amount of male hormone in the circulation, since ...

Efectos a largo plazo de una sola exposición al estrés: relación con la adaptación al estrés crónico y factores implicados
We found no significant adaptation of the HPA axis to chronic FS, but did of glucose and other variables. A single exposure to FS did not cause long-term effects on the responsiveness of the HPA axis to the same stressor in contrast to that observed after IMO. We then studied the effects of single versus repeated exposure to IMO on the HPA response to the same stressor in both sham-operated and adrenalectomized rats maintained with corticosterone in their drinking saline (ADX+B). In sham rats, daily exposure to IMO had similar effects on the HPA axis that a previous single session. In contrast, in ADX+B rats, a reduction of the ACTH response to the stressor was observed in repeated but not single IMO rats. The present result suggest that the glucocorticoids are not mandatory for the development or adaptation of the HPA axis to chronic IMO, but they may be involved in the induction or expression of long-term effects of IMO on the HPA responsiveness to the same stressor. In order to better study ...

1. Marked hypertension was induced in adrenalectomized rats on a sodium-restricted intake by the administration of cortisone acetate; on a similar regimen, adrenalectomized rats receiving DCA failed to become hypertensive. 2. The incorporation of a liberal amount of sodium in the diet of adrenalectomized rats receiving cortisone acetate resulted in a lesser degree of hypertension; whereas on a similar regimen, DCA-injected animals became strikingly hypertensive, as has been previously reported. 3. The presence of hypertension in the cortisone acetate-treated rats was not associated with histological evidence of renal damage or serum electrolyte disturbance, such as was observed in hypertensive animals receiving DCA. 4. The hypertension in sodium-restricted normal rats receiving cortisone acetate was less striking than in similarly treated adrenalectomized animals. On a liberal sodium intake similar degrees of hypertension were noted in both intact and adrenalectomized groups. 5. To approximate ...

Ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) production is an uncommon cause of Cushings syndrome and, rarely, the source can be a phaeochromocytoma. A 55-year-old man presented following an episode of presumed gastroenteritis with vomiting and general malaise. Further episodes of diarrhoea, joint pains and palpitations followed. On examination, he was hypertensive with no clinical features to suggest hypercortisolaemia. He was subsequently found to have raised plasma normetanephrines of 3.98 nmol/L (NR ,0.71) and metanephrines of 0.69 nmol/L (NR ,0.36). An adrenal CT showed a 3.8 cm right adrenal nodule, which was not MIBG-avid but was clinically and biochemically consistent with a phaeochromocytoma. He was started on alpha blockade and referred for right adrenalectomy. Four weeks later, on the day of admission for adrenalectomy, profound hypokalaemia was noted (serum potassium 2.0 mmol/L) with non-specific ST-segment ECG changes. He was also diagnosed with new-onset diabetes mellitus (capillary ...
Cardiac Performance in Experimental Adrenal Insufficiency in Cats | Circulation Research
Cardiac function was evaluated by ventricular function curves during the cardiovascular collapse observed in acute and chronic adrenal insufficiency. A progressive decline in peak cardiac work was observed in the acutely adrenalectomized cat (30% decrease at 1.8 hours and 50% at 3.5 hours after adrenalectomy). This impairment in cardiac work paralleled the decrease in mean arterial blood pressure which reached 50 mm Hg 3.5 hours after adrenalectomy. Cortisol and d-aldosterone, and the volume-expander, dextran, prevented a significant fall in mean arterial blood pressure and in peak cardiac work. When the mean arterial blood pressure of nonadrenalectomized cats was adjusted to follow the changes seen in adrenalectomized cats, a 49% depression in cardiac work resulted 3.5 hours after the initial decline in arterial blood pressure. The data suggest that the time course of the hypotension and presumed reduction in coronary perfusion pressure is sufficient to account for the large impairment in peak ...

Genetic association studies hinge on definite clinical case definitions of the disease of interest. This is why more penetrant mutations were overrepresented in early multiple endocrine neoplasia 2 (MEN2) studies, whereas less penetrant mutations went underrepresented. Enrichment of genetic association studies with advanced disease may produce a flawed understanding of disease evolution, precipitating far-reaching surgical strategies like bilateral total adrenalectomy and 4-gland parathyroidectomy in MEN2. The insight into the natural course of the disease gleaned over the past 25 years caused a paradigm shift in MEN2: from the removal of target organs at the expense of greater operative morbidity to close biochemical surveillance and targeted resection of adrenal tumors and hyperplastic parathyroid glands ...

Case 233 --Neuropathology Case
CLINICAL HISTORY AND RADIOLOGY. The patient was a 52 year old male with a history of Cushings disease, initially diagnosed at the age of 18. At that time, his symptoms included increased weight, purple abdominal striae, diabetes mellitus, and polydipsia. He underwent a resection of a pituitary microadenoma at another hospital. However, due to persistently high cortisol levels following the surgery, he later underwent a bilateral adrenalectomy. Following the operation, he began hydrocortisone therapy, lost weight, and was able to maintain glucose control without diabetes medications. At the age of 32 his diabetes recurred, but he was able to maintain good glucose control up until age 51 at which time his HbA1C was greater than 7. He also had visual problems with significant reduction in right peripheral vision and moderate impairment in left. Testing revealed a greatly elevated serum ACTH at 5,082 pg/mL (normal is 9 - 46 pg/mL), but serum cortisol within normal limits 4 ug/dL. MRI scans found a ...

Effect of alterations in extracellular fluid volume on urinary kallikrein in the conscious rat. | Hypertension
The effect of alterations in extracellular fluid volume (ECV) and solute concentration on excretion of urinary kallikrein was examined in conscious Sprague-Dawley rats. Animals were given infusions of either dextrose and water, saline, or albumin according to a variety of protocols. These were designed to evaluate possible relationships between excretion of kallikrein, volume, sodium, and potassium. A reproducible pattern of kallikrein excretion was noted in all volume expanded groups. This consisted of a short lived increase during the initial hour of expansion with a subsequent fall to lower levels than baseline and a gradual recovery. To define the role of aldosterone in these studies, an adrenalectomized group and a group of appropriately prepared sham controls were expanded with saline. Adrenalectomy did not effect this pattern. We postulate a tubular washout phenomenon as the etiology of these observations. Results of these studies fail to demonstrate a consistent relationship between ...
