Positioning

Generally prone or lithotomy. Many surgeons prefer prone as it gives them more anterior visualization of the field, though it is surgeon-dependent. If prone, consider ETT more strongly if concern for inability to maintain airway. Have stretcher readily available in case flipping supine is necessary emergently.
