Abstract

The goals of treatment for nonparasitic splenic cyst include elimination of the cyst and prevention of recurrence. We treated two cases of true splenic cysts by successfully performing partial splenectomies via a laparoscopic approach. Herein we describe the surgical technique used and tactical aspects. Laparoscopic partial splenectomies can be a definitive treatment for true splenic cysts in that they preserve splenic function and prevent recurrence.
