Silk Suture

Black Braided Silk Suture (Some knot heals better)

UNISIL – Black Braided 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.

  • Silk sutures are processed to remove the natural waxes and gums.
  • Silk sutures is dyed black and coated with a special wax mixture. UNISIL Black Braided Silk is also available in its natural color.
  • UNISIL Virgin silk is available in which the sericin gum is not removed and serves to hold the filaments together.
  • In-house needle manufacturing provides you the better needles with optimum sharpness which finally delivers smooth riding on tissues during suturing.
  • Available Sizes – 2 to 6-0

Indications of Black Braided Silk Suture

Black Braided Silk Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures.

  • Highest purified protein from Species B. More results no tissue reaction
  • Beeswax coated ultra-smooth surface decrease suturing timing followed by no tissue trauma
  • Unmatched Knot strength provides satisfaction to the user
  • USP approved dye increases visibility followed by no reaction
  • Orthopaedic Surgeons,
  • General Surgeons,
  • Gynaecologists,
  • Cardiac Surgeons,
  • Endoscopic Surgeons
  • Skin Closure
  • Hard Tissues approximation
