Abstract

There are few surgical conditions that permit the splenectomy. Among these conditions splenectomy are elective and emergency splenectomies. The elective splenectomy is carried out for a medical condition and an emergency splenectomy for rupture of the spleen or rupture of the splenic vessels. In other surgical conditions, splenectomy could be added to other surgical procedure, such as total gastrectomy, total pancreatectomy or accidental injury to the spleen or its pedicle during dealing with other operative procedures.
