Abstract

Laparoscopic splenectomy is now established as a safe and feasible procedure. However, it remains associated with some short- and long-term postoperative complications, especially infectious complications. To our knowledge, this is the first report (with video) focusing on the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic hemi-splenectomy and its surgical outcomes for the treatment of splenic abscesses causing septic emboli. This technique combines the immunological benefits of partial splenectomy and the postoperative benefits of a minimally invasive approach. Further studies are needed to standardize this technique and to assess its immunological and surgical benefits.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 February 2018.
All research outputs
#6,448,124
of 12,538,691 outputs
Outputs from Surgery Today
#225
of 607 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#108,904
of 271,089 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Surgery Today
#1
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,538,691 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 607 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 271,089 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 59% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
