: I would love any information on a splenectomy for the treatment of TTP.
: My mother-in-law is currently being treated for her fourth recurrance of TTP. In the past, plasma

: move -- even after 18 treatments. Looks like she will be scheduled for a splenectomy in the next
: week. Any thoughts?
I have had both spleen and gall bladder removed,
sorry to say it didnt help.
