Abstract
Because of the risk of overwhelming post-splenectomy infection, the current trend favors conservative treatment for splenic trauma. Out of a total of 70 cases of splenic trauma in adults seen over the last 5 1/2 years, 19 spleens were preserved, 13 with, 6 without operations. Ten operated spleens were examined by Duplex-sonography, on average 38 months after surgery. The results show that in all cases, the spleen was morphologically and hemodynamically restored to normal.
