NON-ABSORBABLE SURGICAL SUTURE BLACK BRAIDED SILK
Silk (composed of an organic protein called fibroin, which is derived from the domesticated species Bombyx mori of the family Bombycidae).
Gauge sizes available
U.S.P. 5/0 to 1 (Metric 1.0 to 4.0)
Tensile strength retention
Prolonged tensile strength retention.
While Q-close™ Silk is not absorbed, progressive degradation of the proteinous silk fibres in vivo may result in gradual loss of the tensile strength over a period of time.
Q-close™ Silk is indicated for use in soft tissue approximation and or ligation.
