Abstract

The authors present the results of a series of 176 laparotomies with splenectomy. They found a statistical correlation between the presence of intra-abdominal lesions and certain clinical, paraclinical and histological criteria. Unfortunately the criteria which indicate that laparotomy will be negative remain unknown. Furthermore, indications for surgery vary according to different schools of thought. It is of undoubted aid to those who opt for minimal therapy, adapted to the extent of the disease. For the 'maximalists' its value is less certain. (Journal received: 7 April 1977)
