Abstract

The non-operative management (NOM) of hemodynamically stable patients with splenic trauma is currently well accepted, yet non-operative therapy has rarely been attempted in coagulopathic patients. Two cases of successful NOM of splenic trauma in patients with hemophilia are presented with a review of the English medical literature.
