Sponge are easily retained because of their relatively smaller size and when it is soaked in blood it is difficult to distinguish from the surrounding tissues. There is no known measures to completely eliminate the risk of the retained sponge. However the sponge management system may reduce the cases of the retained sponge and continuous medical training and strict adherence to regulations may reduce the incidence to minimum.

Retained sponge are commonly left in the abdominal cavity which produce pain, abdominal tumors. 69 percentage of all the retained surgical items are retained surgical sponges. Sponge management system reduce the anesthetic time. Retained sponges can be detected through wound exam, X-ray and radio-frequency detection system.
