DURASIL (silk suture) is a non absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of an organic protein called fibroin.
This protein is derived from the domesticated species Bombyx mori (B. More) of the family Bombycidae. These are processed to remove the natural waxes and gums. DURASIL suture is dyed black and coated with a special wax mixture.
Durasil is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in Cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures.
Type Black Braided multifilament. Material Braided fibres from the cocoon of the silkworm coated with Wax silicone. Color Black Tissue reaction Moderate Absorption Silk suture elicits an initial inflammatory reaction in tissues, which is followed by Gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissues. Tensile Strength Excellent tensile strength, Excellent knot tying, Minimum tissue reaction USP Range 7/0 â€“ 4 Sterilization EO (Ethylene Oxide) Needle Type Round bodied, cutting edge, taper point, straight, blunt point Packing In aluminium foil packages/ Medical Grade ETO Pouches with or without needle
General soft tissue closing and/or ligation especially in General surgery, Skin closure, Ophthalmic surgery Oral surgery, Gastrointestinal surgery, Gynaecology, Obstetrics.
