medical wadding

Well, actually the technical term often appears reversed,
e.g. http://appalti.dgmarket.com/eproc/np-notice.do?noticeId=2350...
which gives the following info:
PAVADINIMAS: aligninas medicininis
1) TRUMPAS APRAŠYMAS: aligninas medicininis.

gives the following:
PAVADINIMAS: Aligninas medicininis

The Bendrasis viešųjų pirkimų žodynas (CPV) gives
33141116-6 Tvarsliavos paketai
(www.valstybes-zinios.lt/vpp3/lt/Docs.catListFull?ses=bcc787... or http://www.euwas.eu/content/e275/e326/e2526/e330/e336/index_...

That number in the English version corrresponds to
33141116 - Dressing packs

The same latter two sources give for 33196000:
33196000-0 Pagalbinės medicininės priemonės
33196000-0 Medical aids

And http://cvpp.lt/notices/notice2002201630/notice_add_print_for...
1.1. fasuota vata po 250 kg - 850 kg; 1.2. aligninas (medicininis), fasuotas po 5 kg - 4000 kg Pagrindinis pirkimo objekto kodas 170001 but no Common Procurement Vocabulary number.

http://www.webmail.eurostatyba.lt/pirkimas.php?idn=16360 gives:
Trumpas sutarties ar pirkimo (-ų) aprašymas: tvarsliava: tvarsčiai ir marlė; sterilūs tvarsčiai, sterilūs chirurginiai pleistrai; gydomieji tvarsčiai; pleistrai; aligninas, klijuotė, vatos gaminiai; marliniai tvarsčiai, žaizdų tamponai
Bendras viešųjų pirkimų žodynas (BVPŽ) 33141110-4 (dressings)

In the Tarptautiniu zodziu žodynas, the aligninas entry refers the reader to ligninas which appears to refer to cellulose.

One interesting thing is that 33141115-9 Medicininė vata is translated as medical wadding while 33141117-3 Vata is translated as cotton wool. Note that Medicininė vata is missing from the webmail list. Therefore my guess is that the technical translation for Medicininis aligninas is 33141115-9 medical wadding. I would still be very careful with this term and find out how the client defines it since it seems that there is some serious variances.
