Overview for Covidien / Medtronic SS685G Sofsilk Silk Sutures, Size 2-0- 12/bx

The Covidien Kendall Sofsilk™ Silk Sutures are non-absorbable, sterile, surgical sutures. They are made from natural proteinaceous silk fibers called fibroin.

These braided sutures are specially coated 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 Reverse Cutting edge needle C-15, 3/8 Circle, in Black, Size 2-0, with an 18-inch thread length. This needle type is stronger than conventional cutting needles, with minimal risk of cutting through tissue. Available in 12 per box.
