Changing Patterns in the Management of Splenic Trauma
Keywords:Splenorrhaphy, Partial splenectomy, Splenectomy, Non-operative.
A study of 24 patients who had Splenic injury from 1998 to 2000 was carried out. Most of these patient 58.33% had splenic salvage either by splenorrhaphy or partial splenectomy. Splenectomy was done in 33.33% of cases and 8.33% were managed conservatively by not operating. By saving spleen one can avoid post-splenectomy sepsis. Use of ultrasound and more important CT scan helps in conservative treatment.
