Abstract

It can be difficult to isolate the operative field from the perineum when draping for procedures involving the pelvis or proximal femur. A draping technique using two self-adherent plastic sheets is described; it reliably creates a watertight seal around the perineum yet allows substantial movement of the leg during the procedure.
