Aim. The authors report 1 case of emergency splenectomy for the treatment of traumatic rupture of the spleen where a laparoendoscopic single-site surgery technique was performed. Method. A 17-year-old male with a diagnosis of traumatic rupture of the spleen underwent emergency transumbilical single-incision laparoscopic splenectomy. Three ports, including 5 mm and 10 mm ports, were placed through a transumbilical incision for the procedure. Results. Intraoperative and postoperative courses were uneventful. The patient was discharged home 8 days after the surgery in a stable condition. Discussion. The Laparoendoscopic single site surgery technique is still in its infancy, but because of its reduced invasion and ideal aesthetic results, it is well received by patients. Improvements are needed to widen its application. Conclusion. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report where an emergency laparoendoscopic single site surgery technique has been used in the management of a ruptured spleen.
