Splenic trauma is a common occurrence in both civilian and military populations. The spleen is a highly vascular organ that is prone to injury from blunt or penetrating trauma. Historically, the standard of care for splenic trauma was splenectomy, or surgical removal of the spleen. However, over the past few decades, there has been a shift towards non-operative management (NOM) of splenic trauma, which includes observation and conservative management.[1] The aim of this article is to review the current literature on the non-operative management of splenic trauma and to discuss its effectiveness, safety, and potential complications.
