surgical procedure in a bloodless field
Explanation:
Blutleere
die krankhaft bedingte bzw. - i.e.S. - die künstlich herbeigeführte Ischämie; die künstliche B. v.a. als Vorwegmaßnahme zur Verminderung des Blutverlustes bei Operationen, z.B. an Gliedmaßen (nach Esmarch herbeigeführt durch Kompression des Gliedmaßenhauptgefäßes, kombiniert mit zentripetalem Ausstreichen u. Auswickeln der Gliedmaße) oder bei sonstigen blutreichen Eingriffen (hier erzielt durch Ganglienblockade u. Hochlagerung). - s.a. Momburg* Blutleere.
[Roche, Lexikon Medizin, 4. Aufl.]

Esmarch-Blutleere (Johann F. von E., Chir., Kiel, 1823-1908): Verfahren zur Herbeiführung einer präoperativen Blutleere in Extremitäten durch Anheben u. Ausstreichen der Extremität, Auswickeln mit Gummibinden (Esmarch-Binden) von distal nach proximal u. Anlegen eines Gummischlauchs od. einer Druckluftmanschette zur Reduzierung des art. Blutflusses;
cave: Gangrängefahr bei Blutleere von länger als 2 Std., Druckschäden, Blutung nach Beendigung der Blutleere.

Also see the following reference for details on "chirurgische Revision". None of my medical dictionaries list Revision, but from what I could glean from various sources, Revision is a surgical procedure to clean/debride wounds, often burn wounds.

Having established all that, it was just a question of how to combine the ischemia with the surgery. Here are some references; hope they help:
The use of a pneumatic ankle tourniquet applied to the supramalleolar ankle region is a useful method of obtaining a bloodless field in surgery of the foot. The pneumatic ankle tourniquet allows for more accurate and reproducible control of circumferential compression than the standard Esmarch bandage, when used in conjunction with the regional ankle block.

ischemia


Explanation:
Blutleere is ischemia, so could it be that the patient was tested for ischemia on the day of the accident?
