Black Braided Silk Suture
Description of (UNISIL) Black Braided Silk Suture
Black Braided Silk Suture (UNISIL)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. UNISIL sutures are processed to remove the natural waxes and gums. UNISIL suture is dyed black and coated with a special wax mixture. UNISIL Black Braided Silk Suture is also available in its natural color. UNISIL Virgin silk suture is available in which the sericin gum is not removed and serves to hold the filaments together.
Black Braided Silk Suture (UNISIL) suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures.
