The important factor to find the eligibility of the candidate towards the need of the laparoscopic spleenectomy is the size of the speed. When the spleen has grown to extremely large size, then it would be difficult to perform the spleen through the laparoscope surgical process. In some of the cases the arteries are plugged to the spleen, prior to the surgery, with the help of the special X-ray technology. It makes the spleen to shrink and then the laparoscope technique is adopted. A qualified and experienced surgeon has to find the need for the removal of the spleen for the candidate.

A hollow tube, which is a cannula will be placed inside the abdomen to inflate abdomen using carbon dioxide gas. It makes certain space to enable the process of the operation. There are multiple cannlas made. Through one of the cannulas, a laparoscope is inserted to pass through the abdomen. The video camera provides internal structural view of the spleen, which is internal to the body. Other special instruments are also placed through the other cannulas to help removing the spleen. The spleen is successfully removed from the body. Then the surgeon looks for any extra spleens present nearby, because some of the patients have extra small spleens developed in the body. Once the spleen is cut, it will then be kept in a bag specially made for it. The removed spleen is taken through largest incision made on the abdomen, after it is broken into smaller pieces.
