Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Liver and Spleen

Summary

Solitary, nonparasytic liver cysts, liver tumors of unknown pathogenesis, and elective splenectomies in the absence of contraindications (portal hypertension, severe adipositas, diameter of the spleen greater than 20 cm) are favorable indications for laparoscopic surgery. The cysts of 12 patients were successfully unroofed and filled with omentum majus. A total of 14 out of 18 splenectomies, including three staging laparoscopics in the case of Hodgkin’s disease, were performed laparoscopically. In four cases we had to change back to the conventional technique.
