Non operative splenic rupture

Lu Zheng, Changlin Deng, Jing Li, Liang Wang, Nan You, Ke Wu, Weiwei Wang
RATIONALE: Complete loss of splenic function increases infection and cardiovascular disease risks, so there is growing emphasis on spleen-preserving treatments, such as laproscopic partial splenectomy (LPS). However, LPS carries higher risk for hemorrhage. Sequential splenic embolization can obliterate the perilesional vascular bed while preserving flow through healthy tissue, substantially reducing risk of uncontrolled hemorrhage during LPS. Preoperative partial splenic embolization (PSE) may soften the spleen and reduce its size, which enhances space exposure for laparoscopic operation...

Aim: Blunt injuries to visceral organs have the potential to lead to delayed pseudoaneurysm formation or organ rupture, but current trauma and surgical guidelines do not recommend repetitive imaging. This study examined the incidence and timing of delayed undesirable events and established advisable timing for follow-up imaging and appropriate observational admission. Methods: Patients with blunt splenic (S), liver (L), or kidney (K) injury treated with non-operative management (NOM) in our institution were included and retrospectively reviewed...

Purpose: Laparoscopic gastrectomy is accepted as a standard treatment for patients with early gastric cancer in Korea, Japan, and China. However, duodenal stump leakage remains a fatal complication after gastrectomy. We conducted a prospective phase II study to evaluate the safety of the new technique of laparoscopic reinforcement suture (LARS) on the duodenal stump. Materials and Methods: The estimated number of patients required for this study was 100 for a period of 18 months...

Spleen rupture in an extremely premature newborn is very rare event. High index of suspicion is required to make timely diagnosis and thereafter appropriate management. We present a rare case of an extremely premature, extremely low birthweight newborn who presented with severe anemia secondary to splenic rupture. It was managed conservatively without splenectomy resulting in complete resolution of symptoms. Although non-operative management of pediatric splenic injuries is now recognized as the treatment of choice, there is very little experience in premature newborns...

Colonoscopy is a common and increasingly performed procedure. It is used both as a diagnostic and therapeutic modality. Splenic injury after colonoscopy is a rare, yet life-threatening complication, most often caused by traction on the splenocolic ligament or excessive manipulation during the procedure. Although non-operative treatment is preferred upon splenic injury, early surgical or radiological intervention may be necessary in specific cases, for example in case of haemodynamic instability. A 71-year-old Caucasian man was referred to our emergency room due to shock after colonoscopy 2 days earlier...

Splenic rupture is a rare but serious complication from cocaine abuse. Given the ubiquitous prevalence of abuse and the potential for death from intraperitoneal bleeding, the prompt diagnosis and treatment of cocaine-induced disease including splenic rupture is essential. The management for splenic rupture from traumatic and atraumatic etiology has shifted from emergent laparotomy and splenectomy to non-operative approach with transcatheter splenic artery embolization. We report a 39-year-old male with a significant substance abuse history who presented with atraumatic splenic rupture...

The spleen and pancreas are at risk for injury during abdominal trauma. The spleen is more commonly injured because of its fragile structure and its position immediately beneath the ribs. Injury to the more deeply placed pancreas is classically characterized by discordance between the severity of pancreatic injury and its initial clinical expression. For the patient who presents with hemorrhagic shock and ultrasound evidence of major hemoperitoneum, urgent "damage control" laparotomy is essential; if splenic injury is the cause, prompt "hemostatic" splenectomy should be performed...

INTRODUCTION: The type and need for follow-up of non-operatively managed blunt splenic injuries remain controversial. The use of Doppler ultrasound to identify post-traumatic splenic pseudoaneurysms, considered to be the main cause of "delayed" splenic rupture, has not been well described. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 5-year prospective study was performed from 2004 to 2008. All patients with blunt splenic injury diagnosed with computerized tomography, who were treated non-operatively, were included in the study...

AIM: To identify patients with splenic injuries, who should benefit from a conservative treatment, and to compare inhospital follow-up and hospital length of stay (LOS), in patients treated by non-operative management (NOM) versus immediate-splenectomy (IS). MATERIAL OF STUDY: A retrospective cohort study on consecutive patients, with all grade of splenic injuries, admitted between November 2010 and December 2014 at the Acute Care Surgery Service of the S. Anna University Hospital of Ferrara...

INTRODUCTION: Infectious mononucleosis (IM) is a common viral illness that predominantly causes sore throat, fever and cervical lymphadenopathy in adolescents and young adults. Although usually a benign, self-limiting disease, it is associated with a small risk of splenic rupture, which can be life-threatening. It is common practice therefore to advise avoiding vigorous physical activity for at least 4-6 weeks, however this is not based on controlled trials or national guidelines. We reviewed published case reports of splenic rupture occurring in the context of IM in an attempt to ascertain common factors that may predict who is at risk...

BACKGROUND: The approach for diagnosis and management of blunt splenic injury (BSI) has been considerably shifted towards non-operative management (NOM). We aimed to review the current practice for the evaluation, diagnosis and management of BSI. METHODS: A traditional narrative literature review was carried out using PubMed, MEDLINE and Google scholar search engines. We used the keywords "Traumatic Splenic injury", "Blunt splenic trauma", "management" between December 1954 and November 2014...

BACKGROUND: Splenic abscess is a rare clinic entity, its incidence has increased due to the rising number of clinical conditions involving immunosuppression. Endocarditis is the most frequent cause, and gram-positive aerobes are the main causal agents. Its clinical presentation is non-specific and delays diagnosis. Computed tomography scan is the method of choice, and the treatment is based on antibiotics and drainage, radiological or surgical, involving splenectomy in special cases that require it...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: We evaluated the effectiveness of various therapies to treat the traumatic splenic rupture by using data from our single center. METHODOLOGY: From July 2008 to Jan 2014, 125 patients who were diagnosis spleen rupture without other organ injury were included into our present study. We divided these patients into two groups according to the managements of the splenic rupture: the operative management (OM) group (48 patients) and the non-operative management (NOM) group (77 patients)...

Traumatic injuries of the spleen and liver are typically caused by age-related falls or sports and traffic accidents. Today, the non-operative management for isolated injuries is established and evidence-based guidelines are available. The intact abdominal wall and the limited space within the peritoneum produce a compression which is the pathophysiological explanation for the limitation of the haemorrhage. Precondition for the non-operative therapy is the radiology-based classification of the injury (organ injury scale) and a haemodynamically stable patient...

BACKGROUND: Hydatid disease (HD) is an ancient disease and even was known to Hippocrates. This disease involves all human parts and most common affected organs are liver and lungs. Incidence of unusual site is about 8-10%. The clinical picture depends upon the involved organs, its effects on adjacent structures, complications due to secondary infection, rupture, and anaphylaxis caused by hydatid cysts. AIM: The aim of this study was to find out incidence of unusual location of hydatid cyst in the human body...

BACKGROUND: In hepatosplenic schistosomiasis occurs diffuse hepatic fibrosis associated with venous congestion of the portal system resulting in hepatosplenomegaly. It can produce digestive hemorrhage caused by rupture of esophageal and stomach varices or peptic gastroduodenal mucosal lesions. AIM: To study the effects of splenectomy and ligature of the left gastric vein on portohepatic hemodynamics. METHOD: Twenty-three patients with hepatosplenic schistosomiasis mansoni were studied before and about two weeks after operation through angiographic diameter of the common and proper hepatic artery, splenic artery, superior mesenteric artery, portal vein, superior mesenteric vein and left gastric vein...
