The use of fenestrated adhesive disposable drapes (FADDs) in our practice has lead to the creation of an improved sterile surgical field in many procedures. High turnover local anaesthetic outpatient lists often require a vast amount of reusable drapes. Using FADDs can be more efficient and has practical advantages. They are versatile and using the adhesive backing provides a stable sterile field. Various applications of FADDs within the field of plastic surgery are presented and other potential uses within other specialities are highlighted. In the light of the new European standards under debate on the basic requirements of surgical gowns and drapes, the pros and cons of disposable and reusable drapes are discussed.
