Abstract

Exaggerated lithotomy is a surgical position associated with significant morbidity. We describe the use of the prone position for bulbar urethral reconstruction in a selected patient. We propose modified prone positioning as an alternative to exaggerated lithotomy for select patients undergoing reconstruction of the bulbar urethra.
