RJV164F4: Another intraoperative image of the abnormal spleen and the laceration on its surface.

Mentions: During the surgery, 3500 mls of blood and clots were found in the abdomen. The spleen was of moderate size with a 3 × 2 cm area of induration on its superoposterior aspect that was considered to be most likely neoplastic (Figs 3 and 4). The abnormal area included a 5 cm laceration, which was the source of bleeding. It was sent to the histology lab for further analysis. A total of 4 units of RBC and 380 mls of cell salvaged blood were given during the surgery.Figure 3:
