BackgroundBy virtue of the benefits associated with minimally invasive approaches, laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) is believed to have better patient-related outcomes compared to open splenectomy (OS). However, there are limited data directly comparing the two techniques.MethodsPatients who underwent elective LS and OS between 2005 and 2010 were identified from the public use file of the ACS-NSQIP database using the Current Procedural Terminology codes 38120 and 38100. Patients who had… Expand
Laparoscopic Splenectomy: Has It Become the Standard Surgical Approach in Pediatric Patients?
TLDR
LS has become the standard approach for elective splenectomies in the pediatric population and has minimal morbidity, and when indicated, concurrent cholecystectomy do not increase the risk of complications. Expand
Perioperative outcomes of laparoscopic versus open splenectomy for nontraumatic diseases: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
LS is superior to OS for nontraumatic diseases, with reduced operative blood loss, need for blood transfusion, postoperative morbidity and mortality rates, and length of hospital stay, although OS is associated with reduced operation time. Expand
Trends in Splenectomy: Where Does Laparoscopy Stand?
TLDR
There has been an improvement in the rate of splenectomies completed laparoscopically when compared to NIS data from the past, and the conversion rate is appreciably higher for LS than for other laparoscopic procedures, suggesting that splenECTomies require advanced Laparoscopic skills and that consideration should be given to referring patients in need of the procedure to appropriately experienced surgeons.

The utilization of laparoscopy in ventral hernia repair: an update of outcomes analysis using ACS-NSQIP data
TLDR
The utilization of Laparoscopic VHR remained low from 2009 to 2012 and continued to lag behind the use of laparoscopy in other complex surgical procedures and was associated with lower overall complication rates. Expand
Laparoscopic splenectomy is a better surgical approach for spleen-relevant disorders: a comprehensive meta-analysis based on 15-year literatures
TLDR
Technically, laparoscopic splenectomy should be recommended as a prior remedy with its advantage of rapid recovery and minimally physical damage, in addition to its comparably surgical efficacy against that of open manipulation. Expand
Laparoscopic splenectomy for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP): long-term outcomes of a modern cohort
TLDR
Outcomes remain challenging to predict preoperatively, with only a robust increase in platelet counts on short term being associated with long-term response. Expand
Open versus laparoscopic splenectomy a meta-analysis of larger series
TLDR
A meta-analysis investigating comparative studies of open versus laparoscopic approach for splenectomy was performed and found that the former is the gold standard of treatment in cases of electivesplenectomy. Expand

  • 2017
TLDR
Caution should be taken when performing splenectomy during pregnancy as risk for complications and mortality may be increased, and additional measures should be undertaken to have blood units on reserve for this population. Expand
Morbidity and mortality after total splenectomy for lymphoid neoplasms.
TLDR
Risk stratification in this group may aid in perioperative management to mitigate DSM, and splenectomy for lymphoid neoplasm in hospitalized patients is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Expand
Prevention and treatment of hemorrhage during laparoscopic splenectomy and devascularization for portal hypertension
This study was aimed to explore prevention and treatment of hemorrhage during laparoscopic splenectomy plus devascularization (LSD) for portal hypertension by modified and simplified operation. FromExpand

Perioperative outcomes of laparoscopic versus open splenectomy: a meta-analysis with an emphasis on complications.
TLDR
Although operative times are longer for LS than OS, LS is associated with a significant reduction in splenectomy-related morbidity, primarily as a function of fewer pulmonary, wound, and infectious complications. Expand
Laparoscopic splenectomy : The emerging standard.
TLDR
Laroscopic splenectomy is a safe and effective alternative to opensplenectomy for treatment of hematologic diseases in patients of all ages and total hospital cost was less in the LS group. Expand

TLDR
Laroscopic splenectomy is likely becoming the gold standard in the surgical treatment of hematologic diseases, according to the results of this study. Expand

TLDR
Compared with OS, the lateral approach to LS takes longer to perform but results in reduced blood loss, shorter postoperative stay, and fewer complications. Expand

TLDR
LS should become the technique of choice for treatment of intractable benign hematologic disease and Rigorous technique will minimize capsular fractures, reducing the risk of splenosis. Expand
Laparoscopic splenectomy for ITP. The gold standard.
TLDR
LS is a safe and effective treatment for ITP, with significantly shorter postoperative hospital stay than OS, and operational times showed a learning curve for LS. Expand
Trends in laparoscopic splenectomy for massive splenomegaly.
TLDR
Despite conflicting reports regarding the safety of LS for massive splenomegaly, the data indicate that with increasing institutional experience, the laparoscopic approach is safe, shortens the length of stay, and improves mortality. Expand
Preoperative functional status predicts perioperative outcomes after infrainguinal bypass surgery.
TLDR
Preoperative DEP is significantly correlated with all adverse 30-day outcomes in BPG patients, and when combined in high-risk composites with specific preoperative clinical variables,DEP is associated with prohibitive MM, thereby identifying patient cohorts that may be unsuitable for BPG. Expand
Massive Splenomegaly Is Associated With Significant Morbidity After Laparoscopic Splenectomy
TLDR
Laroscopic splenectomy is feasible in patients with giant spleens, however, it is associated with greater morbidity, and the advantages of minimal access surgery in this subgroup of patients are not so clear. Expand
Laparoscopic splenectomy for treatment of splenomegaly.
TLDR
Laroscopic and hand-assisted laparoscopic splenectomy are effective methods for treatment of splenomegaly, resulting in shorter hospital stay, decreased blood loss, and fewer operative and postoperative complications. Expand
