Ingen evidens for rutinemæssig anvendelse af tourniquet til ortopædkirurgi

Jesper Røjskjær, Nicolai Bang Foss, Billy Bjarne Kristensen


The tourniquet is often used during orthopaedic surgery in order to optimize the view of the surgical field. The recommended guidelines for the use of tourniquet are not well known even though complications following tourniquet use are well documented. We have made a short review of the literature and found that the evidence for using tourniquet is very limited and that the use even might prolong the length of stay.
