Figure 3: (a-e) Exsanguination and tourniquet using a sterile gauze strip. A long sterile piece of gauze is wound across the digit from the distal to the proximal end. This enables exsanguination up to the base. Thereafter, the strip is opened from the distal end to expose the area to be operated upon. The last 2–3 folds of the gauze are not released to form a tourniquet at the base, which is tied tightly
