I was taught to use an Esmark bandage to wrap the base of the breast to aid in the de-epithelization. It acts as both a tourniquet and makes the process simpler as the breast remains “fuller.”
I saw the ad in a journal recently and went to their website. The site shows how to use the Mammostat. I wonder if it is easier to use than the Esmark (which is very easy to use). Curious about the cost, I called and was told it is $299. It is reusable which the Esmark is not. So it might have long term cost savings.
