For a femoral embolectomy on its own:
Have access from the umbilicus to the mid thighs and from one anterior iliac spine to the other.
Clean the skin of this area.
Use 2 applications of eg Aqueous Povidone Iodine (Betadine).
Dry off thoroughly with a third swab on a stick.
Any residual liquid will prevent the adhesive drape sticking properly.
Towel up:
From suprapubic level to nearly mid thigh.
From one anterior superior iliac spine to the other.
Place a lower drape up to the mid thigh.
Place an upper drape down to 5cm. above the symphysis pubis.
Stick the left side drape from the lower drape to the upper drape, parallel to the anterior superior iliac spine.
Stick the right drape from the upper drape to the lower drape, parallel to the anterior superior iliac spine
Apply a transparent adhesive drape.
Use an extra-large (60 x 60cm.) iodopohore impregnated drape,eg 3M Ioban.
Hold the 2 left corners tightly yourself.
Have your first assistant holding the 2 right hand corners tightly.
Let the scrub nurse peel the backing off the underside of the drape.
Keep tight hold - white knuckles.
Lay the drape onto the square of skin which is exposed by the fabric drapes.
Relax the tension so that drape will tuck neatly into the groin creases and over the genitalia.
Squeeze air bubbles from under the drape by rubbing the drape with a gauze swab.
As part of an aortic aneurysm operation::
Clear a space 8cm. above the groin crease (more for a fat patient), 10cm. below the groin and 20cm. wide, centered on the mid inguinal point .
ie the surface marking of the femoral artery.
Make sure the handles of the retractors are not lie on this area.
If the adhesive plastic drape has torn or become unstuck:
Resterilise the skin with Povidone iodine,


Oczyszczoną skórę pokrywa się serwetami z wyjątkiem linii cięcia. Serwety, które zetknęły się już ze skórą, nie powinny być przesuwane. Pomimo przykrycia ważne miejsca ciała muszą być dostępne do infuzji dożylnych lub innych iniekcji, względnie do monitorowania.
