Indication: Donor side, Holder Suture, dentoalveolar surgery 

IPEK(SILK) suture is a non-absorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of an organic protein called fibroin. This protein is derived from the domesticated species of Bombyx mori of the family Bombycidae. İPEK(SILK) sutures are processed to remove the natural wax and gums.

IPEK(SILK) suture is dyed black (Logwood Hematein black) and coated with silicone.

Virgin silk suture is also available in USP 8/0 (EP 0.4) dyed blue (Methylene Blue) and twisted.

IPEK(SILK) meets requirements for non-absorbable surgical suture established by the European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).

CLINICAL PERFORMANCE CHARASTERISTICS: IPEK(SILK) suture elicits a minimal acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. While silk sutures are not absorbed, progressive degradation of the pertinacious silk fiber in vivo may result in gradual loss of all of the suture’s tensile strength over time.

CLINICAL BENEFIT: IPEK(SILK) sutures are used to approximate tissues when used for suturing open wounds hence limiting infection and aims to evoke inflammatory response in tissue as minimal as possible.
