A tourniquet is used in most knee operations to create a bloodless surgical field.
It minimizes blood loss.
It provides better visibility of bones, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels during surgery.
While a bloodless surgical field is important, the use of tourniquets is known to cause:
- Pain after surgery
- Skin blisters
- Nerve deficit
- Infection (when non-sterile tourniquets are used)
- Blood clots
These unwanted effects can be minimized by using a new bloodless surgery tourniquet. It’s called HemaClear®.
