Splenic injury is a well-known but rare complication of various abdominal surgical and invasive procedures, and even of cardiac surgery. The true incidence of iatrogenic splenic trauma is, however, difficult to assess and is probably underestimated. Overt injuries diagnosed during surgery are usually immediately treated by splenectomy without imaging. This review focuses on missed splenic injuries that are diagnosed on imaging following surgery or an invasive procedure.
