Description

C. W. TEED; SURGICAL ADHESIVE STRIP. APPLICATION FILED OCT. 17. I916.

Patented June 19, 1917.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFTCE.

CHARLES W. TEED, 0F SIDNEY CENTER, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO JAMES A. HOLLEY, OF WALTON, NEW YORK.

SURGICAL ADHESIVE STRIP.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 19, 1917.

Application filed October 17, 1916. Serial No. 126,139.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, CHARLES Turn), a citizen of the United States, resident of Sidney Center, in the county of Delaware and State of New York, have made a cer tain new and useful Invention in Surgical Adhesive Strips; and I declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the invention, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters or figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

Figure l is a plan view of the invention.

Fig. 2 is an edge view of the invention, showing the roll.

Fig. 3 is a diagrammatic edge view of a part of the strip.

Fig. -l is a cross section, showing the strip as applied.

Fig. 5 is a plan view of the strip showing a modification.

The invention has relation to adhesive plasters or tapes used in surgery in the closing and dressing of cuts, wounds and open sores, and it consists in the novel construction and combinations of parts, as hereinafter set forth.

In the accompanying drawings, illustrating the invention, the numeral 2 designates a strip of adhesive plaster made up of longitudinal sections 3, the sections being composed of fabric having warp and weft threads, as usual, the warp threads a running longitudinally and parallel to the sides 7 of the strip and the weft threads 5 running transversely, at right-angles to the warp threads. The weft threads are at intervals omitted from the fabric in the weaving thereof, and asuitable number of the warp threads are also omitted at the same intervals, the balance of the warp threads being continued across the intervals to form an openwork connection 6 for the sections of the strip.

In application, the endmost section of the strip is pressed down upon the surface of the body or limb at one side of the cut or wound, to adhere to such surface, the cut or wound being then gently pressed together by hand and by pulling upon the strip longitudinally toward the opposite side thereof, the openwork connection being located directly over the cut or wound, after which the section at the opposite side of the cut or wound is pressed down upon the surface of the body or limb at such opposite side, in this way holding the cut or wound securely closed, with the openwork connection located thereover. The section of the strip last applied to the wound is cut in half transversely, to complete the operation, leaving a free end or half ready for application to another wound.

The cut or wound being located in the open space between the sections of the strip, may be dressed surgically without necessity for the removal of the adhesive plaster sectlons to obtain access thereto, such removal being objectionable, as likely to disturb or tear apart the lips of the wound, and the openwork connection allowing ready access of air to the wound, which is an important factor in the healing thereof. If necessary, a loose bandage may be placed over the adhesive plaster, to guard the wound from dust and dirt and to carry a medicament application, should such be needed. If the wound is an open one, the openwork connection between the sections of the strip, located over the wound, allows in the same way surgical dressing thereof without the removal of the adhesive plaster, said plaster in this case holding the wound partly closed, as may be required in the knitting of the tissue thereover.

Usually, the connecting warp threads will be coated with the waterproof composition of the strip or plaster, whereby said threads are stiflened and strengthened and enabled to properly hold the two strips or plasters together without danger of breakage or disconnection of the strips, and whereby a lesser number of the connecting threads is enabled to be used, thereby increasing the area of the air space between the strips.

In practice, the adhesive plaster or tape, composed of sections so connected, may be wound upon spools in the usual way, and applied to the wound, avoiding the necessity for applying separate strips, and saving time, so important is this connection. The application of this strip will hold the wound closed without sewing the lips thereof t0- gether. The intervals between the longitudinally alined sections of the strip are preferably of various widths, to provide for application to cuts and Wounds of varying ex tent.

The sections of the adhesive tape or strip are also of various lengths and consequent areas for application to Wounds of greater or less extent and the sections of greater lengthpr area may be connected by threads or opemvork of greater length and the sec tions of lesser length or areaconnected by threads or openworlt of lesser length, as shown in Fig. 5.

in some cases a binding; section 3, bearing; no adhesive, may be used in the strip, for application over a loose bandage bearing a medicament, said bandage, 7, located directly over the wound.

l claim:

1. An adhesive Plilfitfil strip, composed of longitudinally alined fabric sections spaced apart from each other and designed to be transverscly divisible, the transverse Weft threads and a portion of: the longitudinal \varp threads of the fabric being omitted. atintervals and the balance oi the longitudinal, warp threads continued across the spaces between the sections to provide transverse ventilating air spaces.

2. An adhesive plaster strip, composed of longitudinally alined fabric sections spaced apart from each other by intervals of varying Widths, the transverse Weft threads and a. portion of the longitudinal Warp threads of the fabric being emitted at intervals and the balance of the longitudinal Warp threads continued across the spaces between the sections to provide transverse ventilating air spaces.

An adhesive plaster strip, composed of longitudinally alined adhesive fabric sec tions of varying dimensions spaced apart from each other by intervals of varying Widths, the transverse weft threads and portion of the longitudinal. \varp threads of the fabric being emitted at intervals and the balance of the loi'igitudinal. \varp threads continued across the spaces between the sections, to connect the sections and provide transverse ventilating air spaces.

In testimony whereof: I aliix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
