Ipek®-Silk Doğsan Non-absorbable Surgical Suture

 

Description: 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. İpek(Silk) sutures are processed to remove the natural wax and gums.

İpek(Silk) suture is dyed black and coated with silicone.

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

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

Indications: İPEK(SILK)  is indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation including use in ophthalmic and cardiovascular surgery.

 

Single use only.

Actions: İpek(Silk) 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 pertinacious silk fiber in vivo may result in gradual loss of all of the suture’s tensile strength over time.

HOW SUPPLIED

Surgical silk suture is supplied in USP sizes 7/0 to 3 (EP 0.5 – 6) as black, braided coated silk and in USP sizes 8/0  (EP 0.4) as blue, virgin, twisted silk in boxes of 12 pouches. Non-needled silk sutures are available in a variety of pre-cut sizes. Please refer to catalog for details.

STORAGE

The product should be kept dry and clean. Keep away from direct sunlight and do not use products after expiry (“use by”) date.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

The use of this suture in contraindicated in patients with known sensitivities or allergies to silk. Due to the gradual loss of tensile strength which may occur over polonged periods in vivo, polyamide suture should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required. Polyamide sutures are not intended for use in central vascular or nervous systems.

WARNINGS

Users should be familiar with surgical procedures and techniques involving non-absorbable sutures before
employing İpek 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 re-sterilize.
This device is single use. Known hazards with reuse or re-sterilization of opened/original packages of the device are cross contamination, infection and trauma.
Discard opened packages and unused sutures.
Do not use opened or damaged products.

PRECAUTIONS

In handling th is 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 warrented by surgical circumstance and the experience of the surgeon.
When lasering and electro-cautering is used, avoid damaging the sutures. Users should avoid electrocautering and/or laser on suture. 
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.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Adverse effects associated with the use of this device include wound dehiscence, gradual loss of tensile strength over time, allergic response in patients that are known to be sensitive to silk, calculi formation in urinary and biliary tracts when prolonged contact with salt solutions such as urine and bile occurs, infection, acute inflammatory tissue reaction, and transitory local irritation at the wound site. Broken needles may cause complications in extended or additional surgeries or residual foreign bodies. Inadvertent needle sticks with contaminated surgical needles may result in the transmission of bloodborne pathogens.
