INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

COMPOSITION:

CARESILK® is a sterile natural non-absorbable surgical suture obtained from an organic protein called fibroin. This protein is derived from the domesticated species Bombyx Mori. The suture is coated with wax or silicone and is available undyed and dyed black (Logwood extract).

CHARACTERISTICS:

CARESILK® has the following technical properties:

  • Tightly braided, smooth surface, good pliability, excellent knot security.
  • High tensile strength, exceeding USP requirements.
  • AISI 300 series stainless steel (for sutures with attached needles).
  • Ease of handling, smooth passage through tissue.

INDICATIONS:

CARESILK® – Silk Surgical Sutures are indicated for use in general soft tissue approximation and/or ligation including use in cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and neurosurgical procedures.

Due to the gradual loss of tensile strength that may occur over prolonged periods in vivo, silk surgical sutures should not be used where permanent retention of tensile strength is required.

(A mild inflammatory reaction may occur, which is typical of an endogenous reaction to foreign bodies).

NOTICE:

Sterilized by Ethylene Oxide (EO). Do not re-sterilize | reuse. Do not use if the package is opened or damaged.

STORAGE:

Recommended storage conditions below 25⁰C, away from moisture and direct heat. Do not use after the expiry date. Shelf life: 5 years from the date of manufacturing.
