Abstract

Background: Minimally invasive techniques such as Transumbilical Multiport Splenectomy (TUMPS) have begun to take the place of laparoscopy, which is the gold standard for splenectomy. Accessory Spleen (AcS) is an important cause of relapse after surgery for Benign Hematologic Diseases (BHD). We aimed to compare both techniques in the detection of AcS.
