Abstract

Summary:

We present a case of sciatic neuropathy after operation in the sitting position. Sciatic nerve palsy as a complication of the sitting position appears to be extremely rare. The patient we describe was a short, plump woman. To attain optimal surgical exposure, a greater flexion of the hips than usual was utilized. That may explain the possible stretch injury of the sciatic nerve.
