Silk Black Braided
Surgical black braided silk is speciallyprocessed for optimum handling and knotsecurity without excess capillarity.
This black nylon monofilament is smooth and nonporous, resulting in excellent tensile strength and ease of passage through tissue, while reducing tissue trauma, and preventing tissue ingrowth.
This green or white braided Polyviolene® polyester suture material has a unique combination of strength, excellent handling,and knot-tying security. Special braiding offers a uniform surface which minimizes tissue trauma.
