What is a shattered spleen and treatment?

Ruptured spleen. Ruptured spleen means the capsule that contains the spleen is broken or torn, usually by blunt force trauma. Car crash, falls, hit by something are causes of blunt force. Treatment depends on the degree of damage to the spleen and its blood supply. In many cases, observation, protection from further trauma is sufficient. Organ repair or removal is sometimes necessary. Ok to ask your team of docs.
