In recent years, splenic
preservation has increasingly been recommended.
Differential diagnoses can include hematologic malignancies, primary splenic
or metastatic tumors, infiltrative splenic
disorders like amyloidosis and Langerhans cell histiocytosis, inflammatory disorders like sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematous, and rheumatoid arthritis, and infections like tuberculosis, fungi, and parasites.
One hundred and four patients with a diagnosis of splenic
abscess were reviewed between January 2012 and December 2016, and 16 patients met the criteria for splenic
injury after colonoscopy is more common in female patients, accounting for about 74% of reported cases .
Because the patient continued to have high fever, we performed an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan, which revealed splenomegaly and a geographic low attenuation area in the dorsal and upper external side of the spleen (Figures 1(a) and 1(b)); this finding was consistent with splenic
Superselective catheterization of the LOA through splenic
artery and lower pole splenic
artery with a microcatheter (2.7-F Progreat, Terumo, Tokyo, Japan) was technically challenging due to vessel tortuosity but succeeded, however, only just a few centimeters proximal to the aneurysm.
artery in its proximal part had a sinuous trajectory.
After dividing the splenic
ligaments, the spleen with the tail of the pancreas elevated anteriorly (Figure 2).
Total RNA of splenic
lymphocytes or NK cells was isolated by using TRIzol reagent (Invitrogen Life Technologies, Carlsbad, CA, USA).
The gastro-splenic trunk divided into the splenic
artery and the left gastric artery.
The observed tortuosity was due to a growing difference between the arterial length and the distance from its origin and the splenic
