SILS single port splenectomy in a woman diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenia
Laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) has become the technique of choice for surgical removal of the spleen since its first description in 1991. Indications for LS have rapidly increased and LS is now considered the standard approach for the treatment of benign and malignant hematologic disorders, especially by young patients who find small scars cosmetically preferable.
Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is a rapidly evolving field as a bridge between traditional laparoscopic surgery and natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery. In this video, we present an original technique of SILS splenectomy in a woman diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenia. A 2.2cm left subcostal incision lateral to the rectus muscles was used for the placement of the single port device with conventional laparoscopic instruments, using a Veress needle covered by a small sponge to lift the spleen that was removed through the same incision.
