This book presents the latest advances in laparoscopic spleen surgery. The first chapter reviews current status of laparoscopic spleen surgery, including indications, contraindications, and various types of surgical techniques. In the following three chapters, anatomy of spleen, pathology of spleen diseases, and perioperative management are described. After that, surgical techniques of laparoscopic splenectomy, single-incision laparoscopic splenectomy, hand-assisted laparoscopic splenectomy, and laparoscopic partial splenectomy are introduced with high-resolution illustrations combined with typical clinical cases. Focusing on minimally invasive surgery in spleen, this book will be a valuable reference for general surgeons, as well as practitioners in related disciplines.
