Core Tip With the advent of laparoscopic techniques, laparoscopic splenectomy has become the procedure of choice for benign and malignant diseases of the spleen. Splenomegaly can be alternatively treated with modified hand-assisted approach. In addition the introduction of advanced laparoscopic tools for ligation and electrocauterization contributed to reduced blood loss at surgery and minimal morbidity.
