Abstract

Laparoscopic removal of normal and moderately enlarged spleens has become the gold standard operation in recent years because its short operative time, technical safety, and quick patient recovery time. The best method for extraction of the removed spleen, however, has not yet been determined. The authors present a new method for the extraction of the laparoscopically removed spleen. Using a transvaginal approach, the organ is removed through an incision on the posterior vaginal wall and exteriorized in a laparobag. The procedure is similar to a routine vaginal hysterectomy, but is technically much simpler to perform.
