Sponges, Surgical, Neurosurgery

Definition : Sponges designed for use during open surgical procedures inside the central nervous system; a neurosurgical sponge easily conforms to the tissue contours on which it is placed. These devices are typically sterile and flexible single-use sponges made from a variety of materials including cotton, rayon, and polyester; the outer components of the sponge are usually made of a porous plastic material which prevents the sponge from adhering to the tissue and avoids tearing the tissue when removed. Some neurosurgical sponges may include detectable (e.g., x-ray elements, radiofrequency labels) components and/or a string attached to it for easy identification.
