Abstract

Objective: Surgical splenectomy is one of the most frequent operations carried out by surgeons specializing in trauma and hematologic diseases. The techniques for splenectomy are open surgical splenectomy, hand-assisted laparoscopic splenectomy (HALS), laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) and singleincision laparoscopic splenectomy (SILS). In this study we aim to discuss our experiences and evaluate the optimum surgical technique for splenectomy.
