Spleen traumatic injury
Injury to the spleen is usually secondary to blunt trauma. The arterial vessels of the spleen lack anastomosis and the spleen can be divided into vascular segments, which enables for subtotal splenectomy or splenorraphy. In this case, the primary goal was to stop active bleeding from the lacerated splenic artery branches. After selective embolization, the hemoglobin count of the patient has stabilized.
