Tourniquets are widely employed in orthopaedic practice to maintain a bloodless operative field during extremity surgery. In areas of the world where reliable pressurized air systems for tourniquet inflation are not available, and as an alternative to the traditional Esmarch bandage, we report on the successful and safe use of a novel hand-held, battery-operated limb tourniquet.
