Since 1987, we have used the TA-stapler for 15 partial resections of the spleen. The cases included 5 second- to third-degree traumatic ruptures, 4 splenic cysts, 3 injuries resulting from accidents during upper-abdominal surgery, 2 diagnostic resections, and 1 intralienal pancreatic cyst. The TA-55 stapler was used 14 times and the TA-90 once. No patient developed postoperative bleeding or required further surgery. Postoperative laboratory chemistry and scintigraphy findings were within the limits indicative of normal function in all cases. The TA-stapler expands the technical possibilities for organ-conserving splenic surgery.
