For preoperative management, ES/AACC/ESE recommendations include the following [64] :

  • Blockade of hormonally functional PPGL to prevent cardiovascular complications
  • Medical treatment to normalize blood pressure and heart rate
  • A high-sodium diet with supplemental fluid intake to prevent severe hypotension after removal of the tumor
