Use of anti-skid material and patient-positioning to prevent patient shifting during robotic-assisted gynecologic procedures.
J Minim Invasive Gynecol. 2010 Jul-Aug; 17(4):504-7.JM

Abstract

STUDY OBJECTIVE

To estimate patient shifting with the current practice of use of an antiskid material and patient positioning during robotic procedures in gynecology.

DESIGN

Pilot observational study (Canadian Task Force classification).

SETTING

Tertiary referral center.

PATIENTS

Twenty-two women undergoing robotic-assisted gynecologic procedures.

INTERVENTION

Antiskid material (egg-crate pink foam) was placed beneath patients and patient positioning was used during robotic-assisted procedures.

MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS

Patient position was marked before and after surgery. Measurements of shift distance before and after surgery were determined for each patient. Median (range) shift distance was 1.3 (0-7.5) cm. There was no significant association between shift in position and either body mass index or duration of the Trendelenburg position. No shoulder neuropathic injuries were observed during the study.

CONCLUSION

Minimal patient shifting is observed with the use of an antiskid material and patient positioning described, without the use of shoulder braces and straps.
