Abstract

The case was a 50 years old female, with history of multiple previous surgeries including living donor liver transplantation for primary biliary cirrhosis, pancreatoduodenectomy for carcinoma in the duodenal papilla Vater, revision of Roux-en-Y anastomosis for intractable cholangitis due to short Roux limb. She was hospitalized this time for decompensated liver cirrhosis due to recurrent cholangitis, with apparent hypersplenism and risky esophageal varices. After a few session of endoscopic treatment for esophageal varices, we applied total laparoscopic splenectomy for hypersplenism in a patient with multiple surgical histories, for seeking better surgical field for safety. The surgery was completed as planned preoperatively under good surgical field.
