Laparotomy sponges are utilized to absorb fluids around surgical filed in order to make clear visuals of organs while performing surgeries. These sponges are also utilized to apply pressure to stop bleeding since they help distribute pressure evenly around the surgical field. They are also utilized in combination with suction devices to keep the surgical area clean and dry for clear vision. Laparotomy sponges are available in the market as sterile laparotomy sponges and non-sterile laparotomy sponges. Based on type of medical procedure, laparotomy sponges can also be segmented as non-washed laparotomy sponges and pre-washed laparotomy sponges.

The market for laparotomy sponge is expected to witness high growth rate during the forecast period 2013 to 2019. This high growth is attributed to increasing number of laparotomy procedures across the globe.

Hence, requirement of laparotomy sponges gets eliminated with increasing number of minimally invasive surgeries. Also, due to increasing incidences of accidently left behind laparotomy sponges post surgery by surgeons, hinders the growth of laparotomy sponges market.
