CODMAN Surgical Patties and CODMAN Surgical Strips are manufactured of COTTONOID Material with x-ray detectable markers. All patties have a suture string attached for ease in performing postsurgical count verification
Codman surgical patties and surgical strips protect brain tissues and other tissues of the central nervous system to meet the demand of delicate intracranial surgery.
Protection: Codman Patties and Strips absorb more than five time their weight in less than a second to help maintain a moist and clean operative site. The Codman Cottonoid material is highly specialised to provide a soft, porous and conformable protection for delicate tissue. It allows a safe suction through the patties and strips.
Reliability: Cottonoid non-woven fabric resists to shedding, stretching or linting while providing a cotton-like softness. No debris will remain in the operating site preventing arachnoiditis or peridural fibrosis.
Safety: Tantalum marking makes patties and strips detectable on X-Rays. Sutureweld's strong bond holds the indicator string to the pattie.
