Thigh Midine™ is a wedgeshaped surgical positioning pillow that helps approximate the anatomic position with the patient in the lateral decubitus position. In the lateral decubitus position the Midine™ minimizes the pseudobulge by abducting the upper-most thigh. In fact, the trochanteric pseudobulge can be completely eliminated by using the Midine™ and also rotating the femur anteriorly and medially, and pointing the toes of that foot in a "pigeon-toed" fashion. This maneuver causes the trochanteric tubercle to be displaced anteriorly, and medially. By using the Thigh Midine™ in this fashion, the surgeon can reduce the risk of creating a trochanteric depression due to excessive liposuction. When using the Thigh Midine™, the patient should be in the lateral decubitus position, with both legs straight. Lifting the uppermost thigh, the Midine™ is placed between the thighs as illustrated. Two-inch wide paper tape may be used to secure the midine to the surgical table and prevent it from sliding. A cloth towel placed over the top of the Midine provides additional comfort for the patient's thigh and leg.
