Abstract

The majority of primarily partially spleen-preserving operations result from OIS grade IV ruptures of the spleen. Use of a partially spleen-saving surgical approach was successful in ¾ of these patients. Low morbidity and documented perfusion of the remnant spleen at long-term follow-up indicate that a spleen-preserving technique is warranted if an operative approach is required.
