If there is no urgency, in these cases best to insert, when the patient is prone and positioned. Also it can be done anytime during spine surgery...if you consider wide prepping and draping as you should do in these situations.

Thank you Dr Ian.
I was to anesthetize this case and was concerned about no ICDs inspite of
multiple rib fractures and hemothorax.  Somehow the surg thought they were
not required. I am glad I put in the ICD prior to starting the case and as
advised by you we took great care during turning and disconnected all tubes
and lines.
many thanks again
