Caption: Inverting Lembert suture Small tears can be repaired with a single layer of interrupted 3-0 absorbable or permanent silk suture
on a tapered needle.
We conclude that the overall incidence of 51% of surgical site infections can be attributed to the usage of black silk suture
(black silk 2/0 48.88%, black silk 1/4 2.22%), followed by polypropylene and polyglactin 910.
According to Racey et al, silk sutures
produce inflammation after 7 days.
These patients underwent surgical intervention including conjunctival excision, and then traction was applied by passing a silk suture
through the proximal neck of the tube.
The 5th costal cartilage and rib were removed and five silk sutures
were placed into a 7-mm wound of the myocardium.
However, silk sutures
are most commonly used for varicocelectomy.
Experimental study of silk suture
. Arch Surg 1962; 84:698-702.
A 7-0 silk suture
was passed underneath the LAD (2-3 mm inferior to the left auricle) and tied.
(24) The flaps were sutured with 4.0 silk (Silk suture
, Johnson & Johnson, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil), which was removed after 7 days under general anesthesia.
Lateral canthal tendon reconstructed using silk suture
The two edges of skin flap were apposed with horizontal mattress suture pattern using silk suture
. Excised mass was subjected to histopathological examination.
The tracheostomy tube stump was fixed in the endotracheal tube and the junction secured with silk suture
as shown in figure 1.
