Abstract

Partial Splenic Embolization (PSE) is a non-surgical treatment for hypersplenism. It has been reported only in a limited number of patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). We report a case of a female cystic fibrosis patient who developed hypersplenism at the age of 14 and underwent PSE. Long term results over a period of 14 years after the procedure are presented.
