Splenectomy is very frequently used to manage splenic lesions. Nevertheless, spleen-injured patients who have undergone splenectomy are exposed to hyposplenism. Authors report two patients with splenic lesions treated by conservative surgery (with fibrin glue) using the videolaparoscopic method. In both cases the preservation of the spleen was achieved. The conservative treatment allows one to avoid the risk of hyposplenism and provides the possibility to treat the patient with minimal surgical stress.
