[Serum tuftsin concentration as an indicator of postoperative splenic function after spleen-preserving surgery].

Compared with 10 normal controls, tuftsin level remained almost unchanged in 20 autotransplantation cases after splenic resection for traumatic rupture of the spleen, and in 10 partially splenectomy cases for splenomegaly hypersplenism.
