Global Laparotomy Sponge Market 2015-2019
About laparotomy sponge
Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery (MIS), refers to a particular method of performing a medical operation that involves smaller incisions on the body, instead of large cuts. In this technique, the incision is far from the location of the operative area.
Hemorrhage or leakage of blood, as well as the discharge of bile and bowel contents may restrict the operative field, hindering surgeons to effectively perform open or laparoscopic surgeries. Along with suction devices, laparotomy sponges help in clearing the operative field of any such dispensable substance during surgeries.
A laparotomy sponge is a highly absorbent and tightly woven cotton gauze with radio-opaque tapes or a detectable X-ray string on the sides. The sponge is placed under the edge of the incision to protect soft tissues and exposed organs during operation. It absorbs blood and exudates from the incised region.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global laparotomy sponge market to grow at a CAGR of 8.06% during 2014-2019.
