The Thigh Midine(TM) is a wedge -shaped surgical positioning pillow that helps approximate the anatomic position with the patient in the lateral decubitus position. An essential tool for outer thigh liposuction procedures.
Pillow Dimensions: 26 x 15 x 13
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.
Tumescent liposuction positioning pillows improve cosmetic results and help prevent skin irregularities. The Thigh Midine™ and Thigh Aside™ help position and maintain the targeted thigh area in the ideal anatomic position during liposuction surgery.
Of all areas treated by liposuction, the thigh is probably the most vulnerable to poor intraoperative positioning.
Awkward positioning of the patient during liposuction increases the risk of cosmetic unsightly defects and irregularities.
The risk of irregularities of the skin can be prevented with surgical positioning pillows.
HK Surgical’s positioning pillows improve cosmetic results and help prevent skin irregularities.
The Thigh Midine™ and Thigh Aside™ help position and maintain the targeted thigh area in the ideal anatomic position during liposuction surgery.
The Thigh Midine™ and the Thigh Aside™ are surgical pillows that optimize the biomechanical positioning of the patient’s thighs during surgery. They facilitate superior aesthetic results for liposuction by allowing the surgeon to confidently remove enough fat to achieve significant improvement, while minimizing the risk of excessive fat extraction.
Single-use, sterile, plastic Midine™ covers and Aside™ covers are also available. The Midine™ and Aside™ are constructed with FDA approved medical grade foam covered with Staph-Check™, an anti-bacterial vinyl plastic-coated fabric.
