Abstract

See full text

There is provided an improved surgical drape in the form of a sheet having a fenestration therein through which a surgical procedure is performed. A score line is provided partially through the sheet from one outer edge thereof to the fenestration. The score line does not affect the sheet's capability of providing a sterile field. In procedures where a tube must remain in the site of the surgical procedure, the sheet may be easily severed along the score line by abruptly pulling the sides of the sheet separated by the score line. Thus the sheet may be removed from the patient without the need to cut the sheet with scissors.
