There are many reports on position-related complications in neurosurgical literature but so far, continuous quantification of the patient’s position during the surgery has not been reported. This study aims to explore the utility of a new surgical table system and its software in displaying the patient’s body positions during surgery on real-time basis. More than 200 neurosurgical cases were monitored for their positions intra-operatively. The position was digitally recorded and could be seen by all the members in the operating team. It also displayed the three-dimensional relationship between the head and the heart positions. No position-related complications were observed during the study. The system was able to serve as an excellent indicator for monitoring the patient’s position. The recordings were analyzed and even used to reproduce or improve the position in the subsequent operations. The novel technique of monitoring the position of the head and the heart of the patients and the operating table planes are considered to be useful during delicate neurosurgical procedures thereby, preventing inadvertent procedural errors. This can be used to quantify various surgical positions in the future and define safety measures accordingly.
