Splenomegaly is a common problem. in the absence of systemic illness or malignancy splenic cysts must be considered, especially the epithelial variety. For large cysts total splenectomy has long been recommended. Recognition of the risk of an overwhelming postsplenectomy infection (OPSI), especially in children, has led to spleen conserving surgery. We describe the use of an absorbable Vicryl(R) net after partial splenectomy with total cystectomy in the management of splenic epitelial cysts. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
