[Modified patient positioning in long-term hand surgery intervention by regional anesthesia].

Abstract

The authors report a modified positioning of patients for long-term handsurgical operations under regional anaesthesia. After equalizing the level of hand- and operating table, the operating table is tilted 10-15 degrees towards the hand-table. The upper limb is abducted only 30-40 degrees and then rotated outwards. This guarantees a comfortable positioning of the patients for a longer period of time.
