About Video

Correct patient positioning is a key component of successful laparoscopic hysterectomy. This video shows a properly positioned patient prior to the start of the operation. The key elements of the proper positioning are showing in this vodeo: patient is being shifted caudally by holding the legs and supporting the back; endotracheal tube should be always supported to avoid displacement; both the legs are simulteneously lifted; feet are placed on the stirrup boots; the lower one third part of the tables is diconnected; the stirrup boots are adjusted for correct support of the feet; avoid over abduction, external rotation and extension at hip joint; both arms should be tucked on the side of the patient; buttocks should be placed at the edge of the table; thigh and abdomen should be in one plane that will allow unobstructed movement of laparoscopic instruments; and monitor should be placed inbetween the two legs of the patient.
