Laparoscopic splenectomy reduces the morbidity associated with open access surgery. Obtaining haemostasis in laparoscopic splenectomy is a challenge. In cases described in this series haemostasis was achieved with titanium clips, bipolar diathermy and ultrasonic dissector. It is less costly to use of vascular staplers and quicker than intra corporeal suture ligation.
