We performed splenectomy combined with spleen autotransplantation after blunt abdominal trauma by minimally invasive technique at the County Teaching Hospital in Kecskemét. In case of advanced post traumatic spleen injury, spleen autotransplantation (Furka's spleen chips) is a well-known method to try to avoid postsplenectomy syndrome. During the operation, when in situ preservation of the spleen is not possible, chips of spleen tissue are transplanted into the omentum. Function of the transplanted spleen tissue was monitored by scintigraphy. We describe two different types of spleen scintigraphy to check the viability of spleen chips.
