Answer

Preoperatively, appropriate blood work, chest radiography (if indicated), and a careful clinical examination are required (see Presentation and Workup). The usual surgical preparation of the affected extremity from fingers to neck is indicated. This is followed by the application of a tourniquet, if necessary.
