Figure 1: Schematic diagram of port placement. P1 = 10 mm umbilical port; P2 = 12 mm epigastric port; P3 = 5 mm right subcostal port; P4 = 5 mm midway P3– P1 port; P5 = 5– 15 mm left subcostal port (15 mm for vascular endo-GIA stapler). Position of P5 varies according to the degree of splenic enlargement
