    That's amazing! I can see applications for it's use in the civilian world...anywhere really.

    I wonder if it's taken out eventually or does it just stay in the cavity or does it biodegrade...or what?

    If they would infuse the sponges with a painkiller and maybe an antibiotic, I think that would an improvement. Otherwise, I think this is a stellar idea.

    The sponges must be removed eventually. To insure none are left inside, each sponge is tagged with a radioactive "marker" that shows up as an "X" in an X-ray!
