Abstract

Introduction: Partial splenectomy has frequently been advocated to avoid the risk of overwhelming postsplenectomy sepsis. Concerns over adequate haemostasis during partial splenectomy, however, have limited its widespread use. We have previously reported our experience of using radiofrequency (RF) ablation to minimise blood loss during hepatic and splenic resections. Methods: In this video, we illustrate the technique of partial splenectomy assisted by RF energy to minimise blood loss.
