Sponges, Surgical, Dissector

Definition : Sponges designed for use during surgical procedures where precise sponging/absorption is needed. These sponges are typically sterile single-use devices made of absorbent porous materials (e.g., cotton twill, gauze, rayon) that frequently include an x-ray radiopaque element. Dissecting sponges are typically small in size, and are available in a range of shapes (e.g., rosebud, peanut, cherry, round, Kittner); they are usually supplied as disposable sponges in packages of five or more units to facilitate sponge count. Dissector sponges are intended for use during a variety of procedures, from gross dissection in general surgery to delicate neurosurgical procedures.
