KRUUSE Silk is a multifilament non-absorbable suture. The braided suture is coated with wax to smoother passage through tissue. The silk suture is composed of fibroin fibres; silk also contains the glocyprotein Sericin which can give an immune reaction but this glycoprotein has been removed from KRUUSE Silk. Silk provides stronger tissue reaction than synthetic sutures. Indications: Ophthalmic surgery, neurosurgery and ligation.
