Fully agree and thank you for the clarification...:-) however, those would
in my mind mostly be the non-restituted ones, ie the patients presenting at
follow-up with some kind of symptoms or reduced function (except for the
bruit) and thus qualify for CT scan.

Agree  with Tim...comments so far seem to sum up nicely what we know  about
follow-up after splenic injuries...very little. Even with a CT like  this,
most would let him go back to unrestricted activity if he is  otherwise
fine...so is there a place for late follow-up CT scans in  clinically
restituted patients? 

1.development of esophageal varices
2. bruit
3. persistent pain
4. persistent anemia
