Abstract: An alternative approach to laparoscopic splenectomy is described. This technique uses a lateral position and modified port placement. Initial experience with three patients has demonstrated advantages over previously described approaches, by providing a more direct view of the splenic hilum and by eliminating the need for retraction of adjacent organs.
