BACKGROUND Splenic artery angioembolization (SAE) is increasingly being used as an adjunct to nonoperative management for stable patients with blunt splenic injury (BSI). However, little is known about splenic immunocompetence after SAE. This study aims at assessing splenic immunocompetence after SAE for BSI. METHODS Peripheral blood was obtained from BSI patients (n = 8) who had SAE >6 months prior. Splenic immunocompetence was assessed by isolating mononuclear cells and incubating with CD4… CONTINUE READING
