    Hand surgery is facilitated by the production of a bloodless operative field by exsanguination and the use of a pneumatic tourniquet. Exsanguination can be achieved by a variety of techniques, including elevation alone, use of an Esmarch or crepe bandage, or a Rhys-Davies exsanguinator.[1],[3]...
