ABSTRACT

Introduction: Percutaneous image-guided splenic procedures are seldom performed due to fear of complications, mainly hemorrhage. The reported cases in literature were due to atraumatic causes. These procedures obviate the need for splenectomy. Thus, preserving the spleen and decrease the pressure to avoid possible rupture.
Case Report: We report a 30-year-male with large delayed traumatic subcapsular splenic hematoma after splenic salvage that was managed successfully by percutaneous ultrasound-guided drainage.
Conclusion: In stable patients, image-guided percutaneous drainage appears to be another feasible option for large subcapsular traumatic splenic hematomas to prevent splenic rupture and obviate the need for splenectomy.

Keywords: Hematoma, Percutaneous drainage, Spleen
