Abstract

ABSTRACT

Protective sealing compositions in the form of molded rings or sheets for application around surgical fluid drainage openings, which compositions comprise a gelled mixture of a water-absorbing parti-culate hydrocolloid gum and a non-toxic liquid poly-hydroxy alcohol are provided with increased resistance to the drained fluid (viz. urine or intestinal fluids) by incorporating a small amount of colloidal silica.
Fumed silica is preferred. By limiting the amount of silica added appreciable reductions in the wet tack and/or dry tack of the composition can be avoided.

Description

PROTECTIVE SEALING COMPOSITION IN MOLDED FO~
FO~ SURGICAL DRAINAGE OPENINGS

Protective sealing compositions in the form of molded rings or sheets for application around surgical fluid drainage openings are known. A common formulation for such compositions comprises a gelled mixture of karaya gum and glycerin. See, for example, United States Patents 3,302,647 and 3,954,105. As described in the first-cited patent, where the drainage opening is a stoma, the karaya-glycerin sealing compo-sition may be used in the form of a molded ring which is placed around the stoma between the gasket of the ostomy appliance and the body of the wearer. The purpose of the ring is to provide a protective seal, that is, it is desired to prevent the intestinal fluid or urine being discharged from the stoma from leaking around the ring so that all of the discharged fluid is collected in the bag or pouch of the ostomy appliance.
The sealing ring also performs the function of protecting the skin area around the stoma from the irritating urine or intestinal fluid, which in the case of ileostomies may include gastric juices. As illustrated by the second of the above-cited patents, the karaya-glycerin compo-sition may also be used in the form of a sheet or blanket.
Such blankets may also be used around stoma openings, or as described in patent 3,954,105, they may be used around drainage openings associated with a wound or surgical incision.

Sealing compositions of the kind described pre-~.

1~8083 ferably 'hav~ an initial tackiness, usually referred to as "dry tack", so th~ they will provide an initial ad-hesive adherence to the skin 3round the drainage opening.
It is particularly important that the compositions pro-vide~ a high degree of adhesiveness while in contact with aqueous fluid. This is usually referred to as "wet tack".
The hydroco}loid in the composition, such as karaya, absorbs water which causes the hydrocolloid to swell and to increase in tackiness. Xowever, with continued expo-sure to the aqueous fluid, especially where the fluid is urine or an intestinal discharge containing gastric juices, the composition tends to break down, losing mechanical strength, and eventually becomes ineffective for its desired protective sealing function. In appli-cation, such sealing rings or blankets must be frequently replaced. It has been desired to increase the mechanical and/or adhesive endurance of such rings or blankets, but heretofore no satisfactory means has been provided for accomplishing this result.

The present invention is based in part bn the discovery that a new and surprising result is obtained by the incorporation of a small amount of colloidal silica, which is preferably in the form of fumed silica, in protective sealing compositions, which are composed of a mixture of hydrocolloid gum and polyhydroxy alcohol.
More specifically, the resistance of such compositions in the form of molded rings or sheets to degradation by intestinal fluids and/or urine is markedly increased by ` 1148083 incorporating as small amount of fumed silica as 0.2~.
At concentrations of silica above 4.0% the wet tack of-the composition is reduced to such an extent that the composition is not effective. However, by limiting the amount of silica dispersed in the composition, the mechanical endurance of the composition can be increased without appreciably reducing its wet tack, and a satis-factory dry tack may also be obtained.

The present invention is applicable to protec-tive sealing compositions prepared from gelled mixtures of a particulate hydrocolloid gum and a liquid polyhy-droxy alcohol, wnich are capable of being formed into molded rings or sheets and set by gelation. Based on present usage, the hydrocolloid gum is preferably karaya gum, but other gellable hydrocolloid gums can be used as a partial or com?lete substitute for the karaya. Such gellable hydrocolloid gums include ghatti, zedou, traga-canth, gelatln, dextran, pectin, xanthane, and simiiar natural gums. Synthetic gums may be used, including sodium carboxymethylcellulose and hydroxyethyl cellulose.
Such hydrocolloid gums are characterized by being poly-saccharides, bv being hydrophilic and water-absorbing, and by being gellable in admixture with glycerin or other polyhydroxy alcohol.

For the purpose of the present invention, the hydrocolloid sums are used in a fine particulate form (viz. as powders). Karaya gum, for example, is usually employed in a sufficiently fine state of subdivision that "` 1~48~83 `-the powder will pass a lO0 mesh or finer screen. The powdered gums as used are air-dry, that is, dry to the touch, but may contain some moisture, such as lO to 18%
by weight moisture.

The principal liquid component of the sealing composition is preferably a non-toxic liquid polyhydroxy alcohol. Based on present usage, glycerin is the pre-ferred alcohol, but other polyhydroxy alcohols of similar properties can be used, such as, for example, propylene glycol, sorbitol, etc. Preferably, the polyhydroxy alco-hol is not only non-toxic and non-irritating when applied to the skin, but, in addition, has a soothing or emollient action as provided by glycerin or similar emollient poly-hydroxy alcohols.

In preparing the sealing composition, a suffi-cient amount of the polyhydroxy alcohol is employed to form a flowable mix, which can be formed or molded into the desired ring or sheet shape, and then set by gelation.
The relative proportions of the polyhydroxy alcohol and the hydrocolloid can be varied while still achieving these general results. If too small an amount of the alcohol is present, the mix will be too stiff for flowing into the mold, while if too much of the alcohol is present, the molded composition will be too soft and in-sufficiently gelled. In accordance with present practice in relation to mixes of karaya gum and glycerin, approxi-mately equal parts by weight of the gum and the alcohol give good results, However, a moldable mix can be pre-pared using more or less of the glycerin or other poly-.

1148~83 hydroxy alcohol. In general, the mix may contain from 35 to 55% of the karaya or other hydrocolloid, and from 35 to 55~ of glycerin or other^polyhydroxy alcohol.
As a more specific example, mixes can be prepared using portions within the range from 80 to 120 parts by weight of glycerin per 100 parts of karaya gum.

In accordance with the present invention, colloidal silica is incorporated in the sealing compo-sition, the silica preferably being homogeneously dis-persed therein. Fumed silica is preferred, although colloidal silica gel can also be used. The fumed silica is produced by flame hydrolysis of silicon tetrachloride.
It can be obtained from various manufacturers, including B the "Cab-O-Sil" products of Cabot Corporation, Boston, Massachusetts, and the "Aerosil" products of Degussa, Inc. New York, ~. Y., U.S.A: These products are silicon dioxide in colloidal form having very high surface areas.
For example, one suitable specific product is the Grade M-5 of Cab-0-Sil.

In the broadest aspect of this invention, colloidal silica is incorporated in the composition in an amount of from 0.1 to 4.0% by weight. (This and other stated percentages are based on the total weight of the composition, including the silica and all other ingredients of the finished product.) Within the stated range the endurance of the gel composition in contact with urine znd/or intestinal fluids is markedly increased while the wet tack adhesive property remains adequate.
However, it is preferable not to use over 1.5~ silica `~ ~ ~De ~

~1~8~)83 (viz. from 0.1 to 1.5%) so that the dry tack and wet tack properties are more fully retained.

To reduce the viscosity of the mix, and to facilitate its molding or forming, it has been found desirable to incorporate sodium carbox~ethylcellulose (CMC) in the mix. For example, from 2 to 15% of CMC may be used. In representative formulations, from 3 to 8 parts by weight of CMC is combined with 40 to 50 parts each of karaya and glycerin, and from 0.5 to 1.2 parts of fumed silica. Where the CMC is omitted, the optimum amount of the fumed silica is somewhat lower, such as from 0.2 to 0.8% of the mix.

The compositions may include other minor ingre-dients, such as preservatives or antibacterial agents.
For example, an alkyl para-hydroxy benzoate or a mixture of such benzoates, may be used as the preservative. For example, a mixture of methyl, ethyl, propyl, and butyl parabens can be used. Where parabens are employed, such as in amounts from 0.1 to 0.5%, it may be desirable to first dissolve the parabens in propylene glycol or other co-solvent with glycerin, in which the parabens are more soluble than in glycerin. For example, from 2 to 10 parts of propylene glycol can be used per 100 parts of glycerin.

In combining the ingredients to prepare the fluid molding composition, the parabens may first be dissolved in the small amo~nt of propylene glycol, and then the propylene glycol solution of the paraben mixed with the larger amount of glycerin. The fumed silica can then be dispersed in the combined polyhydroxy alcohols by mixing until a uniform dispersion is obtained. The hydrocolloid gum powder is next added, and the mixing is continued until the composition is uniformly mixed. The composition is then molded prior to gellation, which may occur within 5 to 10 minutes. For molding, the composition can be poured into ring or sheet mold forms, and formed under light pressure to the desired shape, such as by use of a movable mold die or platen as the upper mold member.
During th~ molding process, the composition will set up rapidly to a gel state. Where desired, gelation can be promoted by heating the composition, either in the mold, or subse~uent to molding. For example, microwave heating may be applied to the composition in the mold, or the formed rings or sheets may be passed through an infrared heating tunnel. The temperature of heating is not highly critical, since gelation will occur and become completed at room temperature. However, by heating thç molded sheets or rings to a temperature of about 160 to 180F, completion of the setting and gelation occurs in a shorter time. During the setting, there is ordinarily no loss of the polyhydroxy alcohol, and therefore the composition should not be heated to a temperature above the boiling point of the polyhydroxy alcohol.

The practice of the present invention in pre-ferred embodiments and the results obtained thereby are further illustrated by the following examples.

Endurance and tack tests were conducted using the base formual set out below and amounts of fumed silica (Cab-O-Sil M-5) from 0 to 2.5%.

XIX "Intestinal Fluid, Simulated, TS, " pg. 765 (1974). The simul~ted urine was prepared as described in Remington's Pharame-ceutical Sciences, "Urine," pg. 598-9, Ed 15 (1975). The dry and wet tack tests were conducted by a modification of the ASTM Method 02979-71, using a probe of 0.5 cm diameter.

The endurance test apparatus includes a tank for containing the simulated intestinal fluid or urine, and a plurality of tripod testing fixtures, which may be placed in the tank in contact with the solution. The testing fixture has a platform at the top with a sample-receiving recess. The center portion of the recess is cut-out to provide an opening through the platform. When placed in test position, the test samples bridge the openings. U-shaped weights are then placed over the samples. These weights are in the form of steel hooks weighing approxi-mately 7.4 grams. In use, the hooks are placed over the .

11~8083 samples so that when the hooks break through the samples they would fall freely through the openings in the plat-forms. Nylon strings are attached to the upper cross-arm portions of the inverted U-shaped hooks and the strings are attached to the operating levers of micro switches, the lengths of strings being selected so that when the sample is broken, the micro switch will be activated, and a timing clock for the particular sample will be stopped.
In starting the test, after the samples have been placed in the tank and the strings attached to the microswitch levers, the simulated urine or intestinal fluid is added to the tanks to a level above the position of the samples, and the timing clocks for each sample are started. The elapsed time for breakthrough of each sample is thereby automatically recorded.

The samples for the endurance tests were cut sections of rings molded from the formulas varying fumed silica content. Each test sample has a weight of approxi-mately 1.0 grams, and had an elongated shape. The center portlons of the samples engaged by the weighted hooks had dimensions of approximately O.I5 by 0.3 inches. The measured time for breakthrough was corrected by multiplying the measured time by 1.0 grams of the sample divided by actual weight of the sample. For the tack tests, cut sections of the rings were applied to test discs having a center opening through which the tack probe extends. Dry tack was deter-mined with the surface of the sample in dry condition, and wet tack was determined after the sample had been contacted witll water. The force re~uired to separate the probe from `` 1~48083 the sample was measured in grams, and recorded as grams per centimeter of probe diameter, which was 0.5 cm.
Replicate tests were conducted on each sample, and the values compiled as averages of five identical samples.

The results obtained by the endurance and tack tests are summarized below in Table A.
