039, and women who gave birth in the lithotomy position
In clinical practice, in certain cases, we place a ureteral stent by cystourethroscopy with the patient in the lithotomy position
before proceeding to open RRP.
While the patient lying supine in lithotomy position
with thighs externally rotated and abducted, the spine of the pubic bone on the involved side was identified.
The first two patients were placed in lithotomy position
and were subsequently altered to oblique supine lithotomy position
The patient was placed in lithotomy position
and a foley's catheter was inserted.
In lithotomy position
and under general anesthesia a circumcisional incision was made and the penis was degloved.
The patient lies in a semi-recumbent lithotomy position
during surgery, requiring the table to be in reverse trendalenburg.
2], oxygen saturation, BIS, PIP and OLP were recorded one minute before and after the insertion of the airway device, 10 minutes after patient positioning in the lithotomy position
, 10 and 30 minutes after gas insufflation, 10 minutes before the completion of the surgery and immediately after extubation.
After ureteral catheterization in a lithotomy position
, the patient was tilted to the prone position.
Surgical procedures which will require the use of the lithotomy position
include obstetrics and gynaecology, urology and rectal surgery (NATN 1999, AfPP 2007, AORN 2008).
However, none allow a companion during labour and birth, and the lithotomy position
for giving birth is still used with a liberal use of episiotomy, particularly for first pregnancies.
