DemeTECH Silk Sutures 12/pk


DemeTech's silk sutures are processed to remove the natural waxes and gums from its origin. As Silk is a natural fiber, its does illicit an acute inflammatory reaction, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue (occurring usually in 14-21 days). While DemeTech's silk sutures are not considered absorbable sutures, progressive degradation of its fibers results in the gradual loss of tensile strength within the first year. DemeTech's silk sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation.
Silk is a non-absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of an organic protein called fibroin.
