Suggest treatment for pancreatitis and pancreatic cyst
Usually called for as explained
Thanks for your query, albeit short and very specific.
The spleen needs to be removed for the following reasons:
- as the old reports show, splenic vein was chronically thrombosed with development of multiple peri-gastric collaterals.
- due to the inflammatory process around the distal pancreas, there are adhesion with the splenic hilum which may be impossible to separate and save the spleen and hence it may be imperative to do splenectomy. This is usually on the spot / on-table decision as seen on exploring the abdomen.
I hope this answers your specific query.
