Lateral recumbency position

Sterile wrap

Draping

Corner drapes are placed around the surgical site and secured with towel clamps. An assistant releases the distal limb from the hung position, while the surgeon sterility grabs and covers the distal limb with a sterile waterproof drape. A sterile additional wrap can be added or a sterile bootie can be placed. An extremity or laparotomy drape covering the entire surgery table is recommended on top of the corner drapes.
