Splenic salvage is less commonly practiced nowadays. Delayed splenic rupture is mostly due to ruptured hematoma and carries higher mortality (5–15%) than acute (1%). The management of non-traumatic subcapsular splenic hematoma remains controversial. Splenectomy or percutaneous drainage under ultrasound guidance may be done. No reports are available in the literature on percutaneous drainage of traumatic hematoma. This article reports a 30-year-old male, a victim of road traffic accident (RTA), with large traumatic subcapsular splenic hematoma after splenic salvage that was managed successfully by percutaneous ultrasound-guided drainage.
