DURASIL VIRGIN (Virgin silk) suture is a non absorbable, sterile, surgical Made from filaments of silk fibre which are held together by natural gum secreted by the silk worm.Durasil is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in Cardiovascular,ophthalmic and neurological procedures.
Type : Twisted multifilament.
Material : Twisted fibres from the cocoon of the silkworm
Color : Blue
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 : 10-0 to 8-0
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
Characteristics Of Virgin Silk Suture:
