Silkworm gut is a natural non-absorbable suture material used in surgery.
A non-absorbable suture is one that is made from a material that is neither digested nor absorbed during the process of wound healing. The buried suture becomes encapsulated with fibrous tissue and remains permanently in the tissues except when surgically removed or extruded.
Natural sutures like silk, silkworm gut, cotton, linen and hair have been used
since the earliest days of surgery.
