Distal Chevron Osteotomy with Capsulorrhaphy

  • Rola H. Rashid


Patient was identified in the preoperative holding area, brought to the operative, and placed on the operative table in the supine position. The appropriate lower extremity was identified and confirmed. After induction of anesthesia, the extremity was prepped and draped in the usual sterile fashion. A tourniquet was placed on the shin over several layers of cast padding. An esmarch was used to exsanguinate the extremity. The tourniquet was then inflated to 250 mmHg.
