[Experience of laparoscopy application in the treatment of the patients, suffering hematological diseases in Latvia].

[Article in Ukrainian]


Laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) is performed on stages of treatment of various benign and malignant hematological diseases. Retrospective investigation was done, in whom 129 patients were included, which were operated on in 2002-2010 yrs in "Linazers" clinic for benign and malignant hematological diseases. In 107 (82.94%) of them open splenectomy (OS) was performed and in 22 (17.06%)--LS. Trustworthy differences of the age median were established in patients, in whom OS and LS were performed, the spleen size before the operation have constituted 19 cm in OS group and 12,4 cm--in LS group. LS is affordable and safe, in comparison with OS, as operative procedure option for patients of younger age with a normal spleen. For more complete estimation of LS application in hematological diseases it is necessary to prolong a work on creation of a data base of operations, performed on spleen.
