silk fibroin

The raw material in the production of this suture is the cocoon of a silkworm.
These very fine silk threads are degummed
(sericin, a viscous protein, is boiled off), spun and precision-braided. The silk thread is impregnated by treating its surface. This process results in silk made without any undesirable wick effect, i.e. a noncapillary, hydrophobic thread with a smooth surface.

SILK sutures are intended for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures.

Black silk is coloured with physiologically safe dyes.

Properties:

  • very supple
  • exceptional knotting properties
  • low sawing action
  • high knot security
