About to undergo knee surgery?
No doubt you have questions and concerns about your upcoming knee procedure.
Bloodloss is common in KNEE SURGERY
Can bloodloss and need for transfusion be reduced?
Sponsored by HemaClear®
Most knee surgeons use a tourniquet for knee surgery to reduce blood loss.
When a pneumatic tourniquet is applied, the surgeon first wraps the leg with an elastic bandage (called an Esmarch) in order to squeeze (exsanguinate) as much blood out of the leg as possible.
Studies show that HemaClear® removes 30% more blood from the leg than an Esmarch. And HemaClear® prevents more blood from going into the leg during surgery. Your doctor will tell you more about possible side effects from a tourniquet.
Over 1.2 million HemaClear® have been used in surgery, and when HemaClear® is used, there is significantly less pain after surgery, and less chance for an infection or damage to your leg.
We’ll gladly provide your surgeon with information about HemaClear®.
