The aperture is framed with an adhesive that easily conforms to the patient’s skin to efficiently seal off the incision area. The drapes come with detachable, cone-shaped surgical instrument pouches with dual adhesives and provide cord management for holding equipment. Two designs are available depending on surgeon’s preference; designs for supine or lithotomy position. Both designs include a generous aperture that provides easy access and freedom to work in the incision area.
