  • A rare mechanism of delayed splenic rupture following the nonoperative management of blunt splenic injury in a child. [Journal Article]
    Surg Case Rep 2018; 4(1):75Shinkai T, Ono K, … Gotoh C
  • CONCLUSIONS: The mechanism of delayed splenic rupture in our case was considered to be the result of a tear in the subcapsular hematoma caused by stretching the splenocolic ligament related to a bowel movement during defecation. Although delayed splenic rupture or bleeding is unpredictable, it is very important to understand the mechanisms and to educate the family of the children with splenic injuries of the warning signs of delayed rupture or bleeding.
  • Splenic Trauma during Colonoscopy: The Role of Intra-Abdominal Adhesions. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Gastrointest Med 2018; 2018:4879413Chime C, Ishak C, … Chilimuri S
  • Splenic rupture following colonoscopy is rare, first reported in 1974, with incidence of 1-21/100,000. It is critical to anticipate splenic trauma during colonoscopy as one of the causes of abdominal pain after colonoscopy especially when located in the left upper quadrant or left shoulder. Postoperative adhesions is a predisposing factor for splenic injury, and management is either operative or …
  • Wandering spleen with horseshoe kidney a rare occurrence. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2018; 45:96-100Than DJ, Ern TT, Karim KBA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Wandering Spleen was first described by Van Horne during autopsy back in 1667. Its location is maintained by peritoneal attachments such as lienorenal, splenocolic, splenophrenic, gastrosplenic and phrenicocolic ligaments. Among which, the gastrosplenic ligament and lienorenal ligaments are of greatest significance. Patient with a wandering spleen may present asymptomatic, with a movable mass in the abdomen, or with chronic or intermittent abdominal pain because of partial torsion and spontaneous de-torsion of the spleen as in our case. When feasible especially in young patients, splenopexy should always be the first consideration but however if gross infarct has occurred then splenectomy is inevitable to save the patient.Wandering spleen is a unique surgical entity moreover when appeared in congruence with horseshoe kidney. Its diagnosis should be made in prompt to prevent splenic infarction and to try to salvage with splenopexy especially in younger population. However in patient where splenic torsion with infarction has occurred, splenectomy would be the treatment of choice.
  • A case report of delayed intra-abdominal and intra-luminal haemorrhage after polypectomy. [Case Reports]
    Z Gastroenterol 2017; 55(10):1009-1013Neesse A, Grade M, … Amanzada A
  • We report the case of a 70-year-old man who presented with hematochezia, anaemia, and severe abdominal pain 6 days after polypectomy. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound and computed tomography revealed no signs of free intra-abdominal air but showed intra-abdominal and intra-luminal bleeding. The patient was referred to colonoscopy in the operation room, which showed a coagula and venous bleeding at th…
  • Shock due to Splenic Injury after Colonoscopy. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Gastroenterol 2017 Jan-Apr; 11(1):127-133Nallayici EG, de Groot R, … Lutke Holzik MF
  • Colonoscopy is a common and increasingly performed procedure. It is used both as a diagnostic and therapeutic modality. Splenic injury after colonoscopy is a rare, yet life-threatening complication, most often caused by traction on the splenocolic ligament or excessive manipulation during the procedure. Although non-operative treatment is preferred upon splenic injury, early surgical or radiologi…
  • Death due to a rare complication of colonoscopy and the potential medicolegal implications. [Case Reports]
    J Forensic Sci 2018; 63(2):619-621Thompson K, Stier MA
  • A 64-year-old woman was found dead at home after undergoing a screening colonoscopy. At autopsy, 1.9 L of blood was discovered within her abdominal cavity. The only major abnormality was nontraumatic avulsion of the splenic capsule. This was the only identifiable abnormality capable of causing the severe hemoperitoneum and demise of the patient. Although rare, splenic capsule avulsion is a recogn…
  • Splenic injury following elective colonoscopy: a rare complication. [Case Reports]
    J Surg Case Rep 2016; 2016(12)Pavlidis E, Gkizas I, … Syrianos K
  • Splenic injury is an extremely rare, yet serious, complication related to colonoscopy. So far, less than 80 cases have been reported worldwide since 1970. With the increasing use of colonoscopy, endoscopists, surgeons and radiologists are more likely to encounter this unusual complication. Increased splenocolic adhesions, splenomegaly or underlying splenic disease might, inter alia, constitute a …
  • Hemoperitoneum as a Consequence of Colonoscopy. [Case Reports]
    ACG Case Rep J 2016; 3(4):e103Khosla M, Webster L, … Chuang KY
  • Hemoperitoneum without evidence of organ damage is a rare complication of colonoscopy. It is most frequently seen in association with splenic rupture due to traction on the splenocolic ligament. In our case, we present a 48-year-old cirrhotic man who developed peritoneal bleeding during a diagnostic colonoscopy for iron deficiency anemia. However, he was without signs of splenic damage or colon p…
