Setup Instrumentation And Surgical Procedure SetUp

It is helpful to place a video monitor lateral to each thigh of the patient, if two monitors are available. If only one monitor is available, we find it helpful to position it between the patient's legs so we are turned toward the patient's pelvis as we operate. This helps in judging spatial relationships. The surgeon stands on the left and the assistant on the right, with the scrub nurse next to the surgeon beside the patient's left thigh. The patient is in a supine position and her legs are placed in low Allen™ a stirrups for easy maneuverability. A three-way 20-French Foley is placed in the bladder. Methylene blue is added to the saline and attached to the Foley.
