Silk suture with braided and non absorbable fiber 5/0 with 12mm needle, indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation but not for use in cardiovascular tissues and tissues of the central nervous system.
The implantation of the Silk suture in tissues results to an initial inflammatory reaction, followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by connective tissues. Silk sutures are not absorbed, but the protein fi bers are progressively degraded with gradual loss of their tensile strength.
Black, braided, non absorbable, wax coated, silk surgical suture.
Suture length: 45cm
