1,322 Possible Causes for Splenectomy

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    Abstract Splenectomy is considered the treatment of choice for patients with "symptomatic" hereditary spherocytosis (HS).[] Sixty-two children underwent partial splenectomy for hereditary spherocytosis between 1990 and 2008.[] Our study showed that partial splenectomy was not inferior to total splenectomy.[]

  • Childhood Gastric Cancer

    Total gastrectomy with splenectomy and resection of the tail of the pancreas was performed.[]

  • Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    […] to splenectomy still remains less well defined.[] Initial response to steroids and IVIG prior to splenectomy was a predictor of long-term response to splenectomy. Copyright 2003 S. Karger AG, Basel[] Thirty-six (60%) patients failed to respond; 25 underwent splenectomy.[]

  • Splenic Metastasis

    Thermal ablation for assisting hemostasis in partial splenectomy minimizes blood loss during operation.[] If only spleen was under suspicion of recurrence of ovarian cancer, splenectomy may play a therapeutic role.[] Our case is the third case that was treated with laparoscopic splenectomy. We review the literature, and we focus on the laparoscopic approach in managing these cases.[]

  • Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    We report two cases of splenectomy during pregnancy for refractory ITP.[] A splenectomy might be useful and preferable to rituximab.[] For this reason, splenectomy is often performed as treatment of chronic forms of disease that are resistant to pharmacological therapy.[]

  • Thrombocytopenia

    Splenectomy has tended to be avoided because of its complications, but the response rate of splenectomy is 60-80% and it has still been considered for steroid-refractory ITP[] Treatment options are costly and include platelet transfusion, splenectomy, splenic artery embolization, TIPPS and thrombopoietin (TPO) agonists.[] Splenectomy improves platelet counts in approximately 70 percent of cases and can achieve a remission in 50 to 60 percent.[]

  • Splenic Vein Thrombosis

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: A group of 183 consecutive patients who underwent splenectomy were evaluated.[] However, it has been underappreciated in cases of splenectomy for gastric cancer.[] We report a patient with splenic vein thrombosis (SVT) in whom splenectomy resulted in the unmasking of essential thrombocythemia (ET).[]

  • Splenic Rupture

    Finally, he underwent orthotropic heart transplantation without post-splenectomy sepsis or thrombotic complications 472 days after splenectomy.[] The three subgroups in the OM group (total splenectomies group (26 cases), partial splenectomy (12 patients), RFA-assisted spleen-preserving surgery (10 patients) exhibited[] Splenectomy has been recommended as the treatment of choice for hemodynamically unstable patients.[]

  • Splenic Injury

    We do not advocate laparoscopic splenectomy for injuries to the spleen as the standard of care.[] Although splenectomy increased the risk of VTE 1.35-fold compared with no splenectomy, the difference was not statistically significant (95% CI, 0.74-2.45).[] […] factors such as case volumes would have an impact on the splenectomy rate in pediatric blunt splenic injury (BSI).[]

  • Autoimmune Thrombocytopenia

    splenectomy.[] AIM: To estimate the contribution of autoimmune thrombocytopenia to hepatitis C virus-related liver cirrhosis (type C cirrhosis), we evaluated the influence of splenectomy[] One patient showed prompt recovery of white cells with steroids but needed IV IgG splenectomy for durable platelet recovery.[]
