Toe Tourniquets typical Use in Podiatry
Most nail surgical procedures require the use of a tourniquet. The nail bed, being a very vascular structure, needs to be exsanguinated at the start and then a tourniquet needs to be secured at the base.
Professional nail surgery requires a complete knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the nail unit. Nail structure peculiarities make nail surgery more complicated and prone to bleeding and scarring.
When to Use Toe Tourniquets?
- Digit lacerations and avulsions
- Nail and nail bed injuries
- Elective procedures
- Exploration of foreign bodies and deeper injuries
How to get the tourniquet ready for surgery
- Tourniquets, like the instruments used in surgical procedures, need to be appropriately disinfected following disinfection procedures used in the clinic.
- Skin also needs to be disinfected prior to the procedure.
