Background: Although there are some comparative studies between laparoscopy and hand-assisted laparoscopic splenectomy (HALS) in splenomegaly cases, there is no study of the differences between HALS and open splenectomy (OS). Our aim was to compare the HALS and OS techniques in splenomegaly cases.
Methods: This prospective study included 27 patients undergoing splenectomy for splenic disorders at the Department of General Surgery, Istanbul Medical Faculty between February 2007 and October 2007. OS was performed on 14 patients, and HALS was performed in the other 13 patients.
Key words: HALS, open splenectomy, splenomegaly
