Summary of "20 years' experience with laparoscopic splenectomy. Single center outcomes of a cohort study of 500 cases."

Laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) has become the gold standard in elective spleen surgery. Although it is considered relatively safe, treatment results vary depending on a hospital's profile and the experience of the surgeon and center. We would like to present experience of a high-volume referral center with minimally invasive operations of the spleen.
