CONCLUSION: SIL is a laparoscopic technique that can safely be offered to patients presenting abdominal diseases. The main advantages include enhanced cosmetic results and reduced abdominal trauma. The main disadvantages are patient selection, a longer operative time for some procedures, and a need to expose the operative field for some other procedures. PMID: 31710087 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONPatients with SMZL is usually expected to have good prognosis with splenectomy. However, careful follow-up is required for aggressive transformation can occur and result in worse prognosis.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of resident involvement on surgical outcomes in laparoscopic compared to open procedures.MethodsThe American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program 2007–2012 was queried for open and laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (VHR), inguinal hernia repair (IHR), splenectomy, colectomy, or cholecystectomy (CCY). Multivariable regression analyses were performed to assess the impact of resident involvement on surgical outcomes.ResultsIn total, 88,337 VHR, 20,586 IHR, 59,254 colectomies, 3,301 splenectomies, and 95,900 CCY were identified. Resident...

ConclusionLaparoscopic splenectomy for solitary splenic metastases seems safe and feasible with short recovery period even in patients with previous open surgery. More research in the area is needed.

Open SFM is challenging due to anatomic position. Minimally invasive SFM improves visualization and minimizes splenic traction.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed all sigmoid and low anterior resections (LAR) by a colorectal surgical group over 10-year period. We a...

CONCLUSIONS: The review was unable to find good quality evidence, in the form of randomised controlled studies, regarding the efficacy of splenectomy for treating thalassaemia major or intermedia. The single included study provided little information about the efficacy of splenectomy, and compared open surgery and laparoscopic methods. Further studies need to evaluate the long-term effectiveness of splenectomy and the comparative advantages of surgical methods. Due to a lack of high quality evidence from randomised controlled studies, well-conducted observational studies may be used to answer this question. PMID: 3152...

Natalia Kubicki, Stephen Kavic, Hugo JR BonattiJournal of Minimal Access Surgery 2019 15(4):342-344Splenectomy together with colectomy is most commonly performed as a result of iatrogenic injury and not as an additional elective procedure. A 50-year-old African American female presented with recurrent episodes of diverticulitis. She had mediastinal, and porta hepatis lymphadenopathy and subcutaneous nodules, but multiple biopsies were unable to establish the diagnosis. On computed tomography scan, innumerable hypodense splenic lesions were noted. The patient underwent combined laparoscopic sigmoid colectomy and splenectomy...
