Aim. Demonstration of potentials of preoperative planning and implementation of surgical resection in patients with adrenal cysts.

A clinical observation of a successful surgical treatment of a rare pathology – cyst of the right adrenal is presented. The choice of surgical treatment tactics is determined by the size of tumor and clinical presentation of the disease. The surgical treatment was accomplished laparoscopically which permitted to reduce the time of recovery and rehabilitation of the patient. In this clinical observation, the benefit of using 3D-modeling of the surgical area was shown for visualization of topographic and anatomic peculiarities and facilitation of the intraoperative navigation with the help of Avtoplan program developed by Samara State Medical University.

Conclusion. Preoperative 3D-modeling permits to prepare to surgical intervention taking into account individual anatomic peculiarities of a patient, and to determine the optimal volume of the operation.
