Low AdhesionWith High Absorbency

Telfa®* is a natural/polymer hybrid neurosurgical pattie for both reduced adhesion and high absorbency. Sometimes referred as “Telfa® with a tail” the  Telfa® neurosurgical patties are capable of absorbing more than 11 times their dry weight in fluid. This is possible because of the combination of a Telfa® outer layer surrounding the absorbent cotton inner layer.


Rapid Fluid AbsorptionIncreased Performance

Perforations in the surface layer facilitate rapid fluid absorption into the cotton interior and provide the ability to aspirate through the pattie resulting in a remarkably versatile neurosurgical pattie that is slow to dry; similar to 100% cotton neurosurgical patties.
