Overview for Covidien / Medtronic S1173 Sofsilk Silk Sutures, 5-0 - 36/bx

Sofsilk silk sutures are non-absorbable, sterile, surgical sutures. They are made from natural proteinaceous silk fibers called fibroin.

These braided sutures are available coated evenly with either silicone or a special wax mixture. This helps reduce capillarity and increase surface lubricity, which enhances handling characteristics, ease of passage through tissue, and knot run-down properties.

Sofsilk sutures are used in general soft tissue approximation and or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, microsurgery, and neurological surgery.  The plastic suture reels are manufactured with a material molded into the plastic to allow location within the body by X-ray.

The suture features a Tri-coined Reverse Cutting edge needle. The needle has properties that are best used for ophthalmic procedures and traction suture placement. It assists in better approximation of tough tissue. The needle has a NuCoat Technology coating that gives it better initial and multi-pass penetration resulting in less chance for tissue damage. Size 5-0, Black, 18", Needle C-1, 3/8 Circle, 36 Sutures per box.
