Our serial is composed of 52 cases analysed after a backward upper two years. Because the happening of flashing infections sometimes many years after splenectomy, the therapic gesture must be prioritally leaded by splenic conservation, possible in all cases except the lesions of type 4 (spleen burst or pedicule extract): the perisplenic resorbable prothesis is a precious contribution. The analysis of results confirms the reliability of splenic conservation (47%) with 91% excellent results.
