KRUUSE Silk suture, USP 4-0, 70 cm, 24 mm needle, 3/8 C, RC, 18/pk
KRUUSE Silk is a multifilament non-absorbable suture. The braided suture is coated with wax to smoother passage through tissue. The silk suture is composed of fibroin fibres; silk also contains the glocyprotein Sericin which can give an immune reaction but this glycoprotein has been removed from KRUUSE Silk. Silk provides stronger tissue reaction than synthetic sutures.
Indications: Ophthalmic surgery, neurosurgery and ligation.
