Handheld gamma probe localization of accessory splenic tissue in recurrent idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura



Handheld gamma probe localization of accessory splenic tissue in recurrent idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura



Archives of Surgery 135(9): 1112-1113



Recurrent idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura due to residual splenic tissue after splenectomy is uncommon. Location of the offending splenic tissue can be technically demanding. A small accessory spleen was localized intraoperatively with a handheld gamma probe after standard technetium-labeled heat-damaged red blood cell scan of the liver and spleen.
