Sofsilk™ sutures are nonabsorbable, sterile, nonmutagenic surgical sutures composed of natural proteinaceous silk fibers called fibroin. The silk fibers are treated to remove the naturally occurring sericin gum, bleached and braided to produce Sofsilk™ surgical sutures. The braided sutures are available coated uniformly with silicone or wax to reduce capillarity and to increase surface lubricity to enhance handling characteristics, ease of passage through tissue and knot run-down properties.
