Silk

Silk (SK) Suture is a sterile non-absorbable, braided suture composed of natural silk organic protein called fibroin. This protein is derived from the Bombyx mori species of silkworm, from the Bombycidae family. The yarns are processed in order to remove the naturally enclosed sericin gum and waxes and then spun, braided and coated in silicone to provide a smooth surface and greater tensile strength. Dtek Silk Sutures are available from sizes: USP8/0 – USP2
