Laparoscopic resection of accessory spleen for recurrent immune thrombocytopenic purpura 19 years after splenectomy



Laparoscopic resection of accessory spleen for recurrent immune thrombocytopenic purpura 19 years after splenectomy



Journal of Laparoendoscopic Surgery 6(5): 337-339



Routine identification and resection of accessory splenic tissue, an integral part of splenectomy for immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), is not necessarily a "blind spot" of the laparoscopic technique. This case report of laparoscopic resection of accessory spleen for recurrent ITP 19 yr after splenectomy supports this view.
