Experimental radiological investigation of spleen after resection and hemostasis by «non-equilibrium» plasma

Author Affiliations


The study aim was to research a new method of hemostasis based on cold plasma in injuries of the spleen. The study was performed on rabbits. Biochemical values, histological data and MRI data of investigated organ were assessed at long-term periods (90th and 180th days) after surgery with nonequilibrium plasma coagulation. Nonequilibrium plasma hemostasis leads to reduction of the specific volume of white and red pulp. Changes of biochemical values testify to the absence of systemic lesion. Data of dynamic contrasting MRI show the absence of impairment of organ microcirculation. Thus, the functional activity of the spleen after resection and further cold plasma hemostasis is unaffected.

Key words

nonequilibrium plasma, hemostasis of parenchymal organs, dynamic contrasting MRI of spleen, spleen trauma
