The technique and advantages of the tuck position for lumbar-disc surgery have been described. The five advantages are, simplicity of positioning, ease of maintenance of good ventilations, avoidance of epidural venous engorgement, excellent exposure of the interlaminar space, and decreased risk of injury to major prevertebral vessels and organs. No significant disadvantages of the tuck positions have beers noted in over 300 operations.
