Objective To determine whether interval-spaced sessions of partial splenic artery embolization(PSE) is a safe and effective alternative treatment for hypersplenism in juvenile patients. Methods Eight patients(3 males and 5 females) were included in this retrospective study.All patients were diagnosed as hypersplenism and underwent PSE in 2-3 sessions separated by 1-2 month intervals.Immediate,short,and long term follow-up were done.The effectiveness of the treatment was evaluated.Results No major postoperative complication was noted...

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...

Spleen in antiquity was considered by the Hippocratic medicine as a viscerous organ of spongy character, which could clear human body of the black bile. According to the Hippocratic doctrine of the 4 humors, black bile could cause a series of diseases. Both the anatomical position and shape of the spleen were also recognized. In the case of a splenic hardening, with simultaneous augmentation of its dimensions and dermal ulceration and/or splenic abscess, some interventions were proposed. Thus, herbal medicine, phlebotomy, and minimal surgery with local cauterization were applied for treatment, to confront a disease that was considered serious but not fatal...

AIM: To evaluate an effectiveness of endovascular techniques in pancreatic surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: For the period 1995-2017 at Vishnevsky Institute of Surgery endovascular treatment (EVT) was applied in 51 patients with chronic pancreatitis complicated by false aneurysms (FA) and postoperative hemorrhage after pancreatectomy. Various methods of embolization and stenting were used in 24 and 11 cases respectively in order to exclude FA of celiac trunk and superior mesenteric artery from blood flow...

Background/Purpose: Splenic abscess is rare with potentially life-threatening evolution. The aim of this study is to review the clinical features, microbiological etiologies, treatment, and outcomes of patients with splenic abscess. Methods: We reviewed the admitted patients with suspected splenic abscess and made the diagnosis of splenic abscess. The clinical characteristics, underlying diseases, treatment course, organism spectra, abscess number and size, therapeutic methods, and clinical outcome at a tertiary medical center in Taiwan over a period of 5 years were analyzed...

A 39-year-old woman was being treated for depression in our clinic. She subsequently developed a fever and was diagnosed with pancytopenia and moderate splenomegaly. Laboratory and bone marrow results, including markedly increased serum ferritin levels, suggested haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. CT showed multiple splenic abscesses and ovarian vein thrombosis. All laboratory values returned to normal after treatment for culture-positive brucellosis.

Laparoscopic splenectomy is now established as a safe and feasible procedure. However, it remains associated with some short- and long-term postoperative complications, especially infectious complications. To our knowledge, this is the first report (with video) focusing on the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic hemi-splenectomy and its surgical outcomes for the treatment of splenic abscesses causing septic emboli. This technique combines the immunological benefits of partial splenectomy and the postoperative benefits of a minimally invasive approach...

Splenic abscesses caused by Salmonella typhi are a very rare complication of typhoid fever in this era of use of specific antibiotics. Co-infection with Leptospira in such a patient is even rarer. Clinical diagnosis of splenic abscess caused by Salmonella is difficult owing to its rarity, being insidious in onset and having nonspecific clinical presentation. Splenic abscesses are potentially fatal complication of typhoid fever. In most of these patients, hemoglobinopathies or some other underlying immunocompromised state is usually present...

A collection of dead white blood cells within the liver is called a liver abscess, and pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) is the most common type. PLA is commonly associated with biliary tract infections. However, in this case report, we present a rare cause of Streptococcus anginosus bacteremia and PLA which is associated with a carcinoma of the colon at the splenic flexure. The presentation mimicked a cholecystitis clinically, but the radio-imaging revealed a liver abscess. Blood cultures revealed an uncommon etiological agent, S...

BACKGROUND: Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) detects extra-pulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) in HIV-infected adults but has not been evaluated in children despite their higher risk of EPTB. This study's aims were to investigate feasibility of POCUS for EPTB in children, frequency of POCUS findings suggestive of EPTB, and time to sonographic resolution of findings with treatment. METHODS: This prospective South African cohort study enrolled children with suspected PTB...

BACKGROUND: Delayed intra splenic abscess after laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a very rare complication with poor manifestations. METHODS: We present three cases of delayed intrasplenic abscess which were managed in our departmentof minimal invasive surgery. DISCUSSION: Splenic abscess may occur in the early post-operative period following LSG; it is usually an extra splenic event after the gastric leak or an infected hematoma. In our cases, two patients had an asymptomatic ischemic demarcation in the upper part of the spleen...

Comparable failure rates of distal or proximal transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) techniques for blunt splenic injuries have been reported. This study is to investigate the efficacy and complication of combining both TAE techniques. We included 26 patients of blunt splenic injuries for TAE therapy and randomized them into distal TAE and combined TAE groups. A prospective study was performed to compare their demographics, clinical parameters, hemograms, post-TAE splenic infarct volumes, splenic abscess and pancreatitis between the two groups...

A 24-year old woman with a history of Crohn's disease developed bloody diarrhea and multiple abdominal abscesses, daily fever, leukocytosis, and elevated CRP several months after her immunosuppressive therapy with azathioprine was stopped. Recurrent abscess punctures did not detect any pathogenic germs and neither clinical nor serological response was achieved by administration of different antimicrobial therapies. Additionally, new splenic abscesses arose despite ongoing therapy. Under the suspicion of the rare aseptic abscess syndrome, representing an auto-inflammatory, extra-intestinal manifestation of Crohn's disease, the antimicrobial therapy was stopped and an intravenous therapy with prednisolone was initiated...

Patients with HIV are susceptible to mycobacterium infection. In the case of fast-growing mycobacteria, the group to which Mycobacterium fortuitum (M. fortuitum) belongs, infections have been described in the skin, lungs, lymph nodes and disseminated disease. We present the case of a 43-year-old male patient with pre-diagnosis of HIV in antiretroviral therapy, which comes as a fever, asthenia, weight loss and chronic diarrhea. Abdominal tomography is performed and hepatosplenomegaly is evidenced with nodular lesions in the spleen...

Splenic abscess is a rare and potentially lethal clinical condition. The most common symptoms of a splenic abscess - abdominal pain, nausea and fever - are non-specific. As a result, a splenic abscess is often not considered in the initial work-up. This might lead to a delay in diagnosis and treatment. In this case series we successively describe a 41-year-old female with a splenic abscess after Streptococcus milleri bacteraemia, a 78-year-old male with a splenic abscess caused by a colon carcinoma and a 52-year-old male with a splenic abscess resulting from a colosplenic fistula after bariatric surgery...
