Absorb fluids rapidly while protecting vital tissue with ASC’s rayon surgical sponges Delicot®, Uniqcot™ and Ray-Cot® rayon neuro patties and surgical strips. Rayon provides superior pliability, rendering the neurosurgical patties or strips flexible and moldable for any desired position. Rayon is inherently tissue-protective with its low adhesion properties in wet or dry conditions. Rayon products are also strong, demonstrating a tensile strength that minimizes shedding. All ASC Rayon medical patties and strips are X-ray detectable.

ArmourSorb® is our newest advancement in soft tissue protection and was designed to prevent the potential for wrapping and spinning of a standard micro neurosurgical pattie when used in close proximity to a high speed drill burr.  ArmourSorb® is ideal for Surgical Training Programs or surgical procedures such as: Craniotomies, Acoustic Neuromas, Spinal Laminoplasties, Laminectomies, Foraminotomies, or anywhere soft tissue is involved. ArmourSorb combines the absorbency and moisture retention of traditional sponges on the tissue side with a proprietary deflective layer on the opposing side and is available in a variety of sizes to meet your surgical needs.

Telfa® (1 Product)Learn MoreShow Less

Telfa®* is a natural/synthetic hybrid neurosurgical patty for both low adhesion and unmatched absorbency. Telfa® is capable of absorbing more than 11 times its dry weight in fluid. This is possible because it combines the smoothness of its Telfa® polymer outer layer surrounding the absorbent cotton inner layer. Perforations in the surface layer facilitate rapid fluid absorption into the cotton interior, resulting in a remarkably versatile neuro patty that is slow to dry, just like 100% cotton neurosurgical patties. Telfa® also demonstrates remarkably low tissue adhesion in drying conditions. Telfa’s® thick 0.76 mm profile enhances visibility while remaining remarkably pliable and absorbent. *Telfa® is a registered trademark of Covidien plc
