  • Specifications:
    DemeTech’s Silk suture is a non-absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of an organic protein called fibroin. DemeTech’s silk sutures are processed to remove the natural waxes and gums from its origin. . As Silk is a natural fiber, it does illicit an acute inflammatory reaction, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue (occurring usually in 14-21 days). While DemeTech’s silk sutures are not considered absorbable sutures, progressive degradation of its fibers results in the gradual loss of tensile strength within the first year. - Raw silk is produced by a silkworm larva’s cocoon. These natural waxes and gums are removed prior to the braiding process, allowing fora tighter, more compact braid. - DemeTech’s Silk suture is dyed black for easier visibility in tissue. - DemeTech’s Silk suture is non-absorbable and multifilament in nature. - Although DemeTech classifies its silk suture as a non-absorbable suture, it loses most of its tensile strength in one year. Made in the USA
