Abstract

The use of resorbable polyglycolic acid mesh in the treatment of splenic injuries offers an alternative in conservative splenic surgery. We report on two patients who were successfully treated with polyglycolic acid mesh for Grade III splenic injuries and discuss the difficulties in surgical techniques when trying to avoid splenectomy in splenic injuries.
