Surgical tourniquets have an important role in limiting blood loss and improving surgical visualization. The HemaClear® tourniquet is a sterile silicone-ring tourniquet designed to exsanguinate as it is applied. HemaClear tourniquets may be rolled all the way up to the groin or the axilla and thus provide a larger operating field than standard wide pneumatic tourniquets. Although designed for single use, we propose here a technique permitting the reapplication of a HemaClear tourniquet on the contralateral limb in the setting of bilateral-extremity sequential surgical procedures. Such one time reuse decreases health-care costs.
