Draping of the pelvis and proximal femur: an improved method for applying self-adherent plastic drapes.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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.
