Conventional open and conventional laparoscopic splenectomy and azygoportal disconnection (CLSD) result in poor quality of life because of damage to the vagal nerve. We have developed vagus nerve-preserving laparoscopic splenectomy and azygoportal disconnection (VLSD). This study aimed to evaluate whether VLSD is effective and safe, and to determine whether a reduction in the incidence of postoperative complications improves postoperative quality of life compared with CLSD. We retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
