Learn About Covidien Sofsilk Suture, Non-Absorbable, Size 2-0, V-20, 18"

Sofsilk braided silk sutures are nonabsorbable, sterile, non-mutagenic
surgical sutures composed of natural proteinaceous silk fibers called fibroin.
This protein is derived from the domesticated silkworm species Bombyx mori of the family bombycidae. The silk fibers are treated to remove the naturally-
occurring sericin gum and braided to produce Sofsilk surgical silk sutures. The braided sutures are available coated uniformly with either silicone or a special wax mixture to reduce capillarity and to increase surface lubricity which enhances handling characteristics, ease of passage through tissue, and knot run-down properties.


Sofsilk sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation
and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, microsurgery, and
neurological surgery.


SofsilkTM sutures elicit a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, which
is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective

Tensile Strength:

While Sofsilk sutures are not absorbed, progressive degradation of the proteinaceous silk fiber in vivo may result in gradual loss of the suture’s
tensile strength over time.


Gamma irradiation.


The sutures are supplied sterile, in pre-cut lengths and ligating reels, nonneedled or affixed to needles using both permanent and removable needle attachment techniques. Please refer to the individual package IFUs for complete instructions, indications, contraindications, warnings and precautions.
