Color photography in open urological surgery

J. M. Barry, P. Ramsey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The quality of intraoperative color slide photography can be improved by 1) orienting the viewer with landmark outline and constant camera position during the procedure, 2) brown gloves to avoid contrast within the operative field, 3) blue sponges to absorb blood, 4) contrasting stay sutures or tapes and 5) taking multiple pictures at different exposures. These points are illustrated with the photographic record of the repair of multiple renal artery aneurysms to provide the urologist with helpful hints in the recording of his interesting or challenging operative procedures.
