PERMA-HAND Silk Suture Black Braided, 3-0(2.0 metric), 30" (75 cm)
PERMA-HAND Suture is a nonabsorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of an organic protein called fibroin. This protein is derived from the domesticated species Bombyx mori (B. mori) of the family Bombycidae.Silk for braided sutures is processed to remove the natural waxes and gums, coated with wax or silicone and is available undyed and dyed black.2PERMA-HAND Suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximating and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurological procedures.
PERMA-HAND silk suture is a nonabsorbable, sterile, surgical suture composed of an organic protein called fibroin. This protein is derived from the domesticated species Bombyx mori (B. mori) of the family Bombycidae. PERMA-HAND sutures are processed to remove the natural waxes and gums. PERMA-HAND suture is dyed black and coated with a special wax mixture. PERMA-HAND suture is also available in its natural color. PERMA-HAND Virgin silk suture is available in which the sericin gum is not removed and serves to hold the filaments together. PERMA-HAND suture meets requirements established by the United States Pharmacopoeia (U.S.P.) for nonabsorbable surgical suture.
PERMA-HAND suture is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation, including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic and neurological procedures.
PERMA-HAND suture elicits an acute inflammatory reaction in tissue, which is followed by a gradual encapsulation of the suture by fibrous connective tissue. While silk sutures are not absorbed, progressive degradation of the proteinaceous silk fiber in vivo may result in gradual loss of all of the sutures tensile strength over time.
The use of this suture is contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to silk. Due to the gradual loss of tensile strength which may occur over prolonged periods in vivo, silk should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required.
Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving nonabsorbable sutures before employing PERMA-HAND suture for wound closure, as risk of wound dehiscence may vary with the site of application and the suture material used. As with any foreign body, prolonged contact of any suture with salt solutions, such as those found in the urinary or biliary tracts, may result in calculus formation. Acceptable surgical practice should be followed for the management of infected or contaminated wounds. Do not resterilize. Discard opened packages and unused sutures.
In handling this or any other suture material, care should be taken to avoid damage from handling. Avoid crushing or crimping damage due to application of surgical instruments such as forceps or needle holders. As with any suture material, adequate knot security requires the accepted surgical technique of flat and square ties with additional throws as warranted by surgical circumstance and the experience of the surgeon. To avoid damaging needle points and swage areas, grasp the needle in an area one-third (1/3) to one-half (1/2) of the distance from the swaged end to the point. Reshaping needles may cause them to lose strength and be less resistant to bending and breaking. Users should exercise caution when handling surgical needles to avoid inadvertent needle sticks. Discard used needles in "sharps" containers.
