Abstract

As the high risk of sepsis after splenectomy is well recognized, reliable conservative surgical techniques in splenic surgery are widely advocated. Among these, segmental splenectomy carries specific and increasing indications. The use of linear staplers makes this operation quicker and safer. On the basis of a personal observation, Authors examine the anatomical features on which this operation is based, the surgical technique and the technical details to be followed using these devices. The advantages offered by staplers in this surgery allow to widen the indications to partial splenectomy, so as to yield a true primary prophylaxis of the post-splenectomy sepsis.
