The use of a steep Trendelenburg position is described in removing foreign bodies from the foot. Bleeding at the site is sufficiently reduced to allow removal without a tourniquet. Retrospective analysis of theatre records demonstrates a considerable reduction in the number of general anaesthetics given since the introduction of this technique.
