Hand-assisted laparoscopic splenectomy for isolated splenic metastasis from an ovarian carcinoma: a case report with review of the literature



Hand-assisted laparoscopic splenectomy for isolated splenic metastasis from an ovarian carcinoma: a case report with review of the literature



Surgical Laparoscopy and Endoscopy 8(1): 49-54



A 56-year-old woman was found to have a solitary metastasis to the spleen from ovarian cancer. A hand-assisted laparoscopic splenectomy was carried out. The operative technique and advantages of this technique are discussed. Laparoscopy with mini laparotomy allows for manual manipulation of the spleen with the ability to control bleeding, and facilitates mobilization and removal of the specimen. Postoperative recovery is rapid. Review of the literature indicates that secondary metastasis to the spleen is quite common.
