Supine positioning for surgical repair of the Achilles tendon.
In this article, we describe supine positioning for Achilles tendon surgery. We find this to be a safer and more efficient method than either prone or lateral positioning. It allows easier access for airway monitoring, it does not compromise access to the surgical site, and it requires less setup time for both anesthesia and surgical positioning, thereby potentially saving time in the operating room.
