Splenectomy and Shunt Surgeries

Splenectomy and Shunt Surgeries in India

Under your ribs, on the upper left side of your belly, is an organ called the spleen. It aids in the battle against infection and removes waste products from your blood, such as old or broken blood cells. Your spleen can be removed through surgery, known as a splenectomy. When the spleen ruptures, develops malignancy, or develops Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), an autoimmune disease that affects the blood cells, this is done. Patients who have their spleen removed can resume their usual lives. The splenic vein, also known as the splenic vein, is severed from the portal vein and reattached to the renal vein in the left kidney during a distal splenorenal shunt procedure. Your varices (the huge, swelling veins that form across the stomach and oesophagus) will be under less strain after this operation, and the bleeding and clotting will be under control.
