SURGICAL IMPLEMENT.

APPLICATION FILED MAY 22, 191m Patented Jan.15,1918.

INVENTOR I ATTORNEY ran sear EDWARD H. GALLIGAN, 0F SEEKONK, MASSACHUSETTS.

SURGICAL IMPLEMENT.

Application filed May 22, 1917.

'useful Improvements in Surgical Implements, ofwhich the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a surgical implement which may be employed in treating diseases affecting certain glands and cavities of the body.

The primary object of the invention is to provide a surgical implement which may be used as a flushing device for the colon and vagina, or employed for massaging the prostate gland while making application thereto.

Another object of the invention is to provide an implement of this character which is so constructed that not only hot or cold application may be made to the part of the body being treated during the massaging thereof but will enable an electrical current to be passed through the part, or vibration imparted thereto from a vibrator if desired.

A stillfurther object of the invention is to provide the implement with an in'ection nozzle havin a handle so arranged t ereon that the nozz ie may be held firmly engaged with the prostate gland when used in the massaging thereof.

With these and other objects in view, the invention resides in the novel combination and arrangement of parts which will be hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the claims.

The preferred embodiment of the invention has been illustrated in the accompanyingdrawing, although no restriction is necessarily made to the precise details of construction therein shown, as changes, alterations and modifications within the scope of the claims may be resorted to when desired.

In the drawing,-

Figure 1 is a view in side elevation, partly in section, of an implement constructed in accordance with the invention.

Fig. 2 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view through one of the injection nozzles forming a part thereof. v

Fig. 3 is a similar section through the other injection nozzle which is used in connection with the implement.

Fig. 4 is a view in side elevation of a coupling which may be employed for con- Speciflcation of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 170,286.

necting either of the injection nozzles with the fluid receptacle.

Fig. 5 is a side elevation of a valve which may be employed in connection with the coupling.

Like characters of reference denote correspondin parts throughout the various views in t e drawing.

Referring now to the drawing in detail, the letter A designates a surgical implement constructed in accordance with the invention, and in which a flexible liquid receptacle 5 1n the form of a bag has formed thereon at one end a neck 6 closed by a stopper 7. The other end of the receptacle 5 has secured thereto a channeled nipple 8 provided with a reduced threaded extension 9 for insertion with one end of a flexible tube 10, the other end of which is provided with a nipple 12.

An injection nozzle handle 13 has formed at one end thereof an enlargement 14 provided with a threaded socket 15 in to which extends the nipple 12, said socket communicating with a longitudinally extending channel. 16 in the handle in which is received,

a metallic tube 17 enlarged for a portion 7 bars 22 through which the fingers are passed when the implement is employed for massagin purposes.

Em edded in the cross bars 22 are sockets 28 and 24 to receive therein the plug at the end of suitable electrical-- conductors (not shown in the drawing), and having connection with a suitable source of electrical energy, the socket 23 having connected therewith a wire 25 embedded in the handle 13 and having connection with a contact ring 26 embedded in the handle 13 and arranged concentrically of the socket 18. The socket 24 contacts with the upper end of the tube 17 which is so shaped as to provide a casing for the valve 19.

A pair of injection nozzles 27 and 28 are provided for use in connection with the handle 13. Each nozzle, which is formed from insulating material, has extending longitudinally thereof throughout its length a metallic tube 29 and a conducting wire 30 having secured thereto at the inner end of the nozzle a contact band 31 embedded in the nozzle and adapted for contact with an edge of the band 26 when the nozzle is connected with the handle 13 by the engagement of the threaded end 32 of the tube therein with the threads in the socket 18. The other end of the wire 30 is secured to a plate 33 embedded in the nozzle adjacent its forward end. The other end of the tube 29 has removably connected therewith a perforated and metallic tip 34.

From the above described construction of the handle 13 and the nozzles 27 and 28, it is at once apparent that when either of the nozzles are connected with the handle 13 and the plug having connection with a suitable source of electrical energy inserted in the sockets 23 and 24 the electrical current will pass through the wires 25 and 30 and into the plate from which the current may pass through the parts to be treated and back into the cap 34 and hence upwardly through the tube 29 and back to the source of supply through the plug 30 in the socket 24.

When it is found desirable to employ the nozzle 27 in the treatment of diseases of the above mentioned gland, it is sometimes found desirable to employ a shorter connection between the liquid receptacle and the handle 13 and to permit such connection to be made the coupling 35 is provided having formed in one end thereof a threaded extension 36 for insertion within the socket 15. The other end of the coupling is provided with a socket 37 to receive therein the nipple 9 on the liquid receptacle.

When found desirable the valve 38 may be connected with the extension 36 and with the nipple on the liquid receptacle to control the discharge therefrom.

The nozzle 27 which is designed to be used when the implement is employed in flushing the colon and other cavities, is curved adjacent its other end, as shown, to insure the effective flushing of this sack and also to enable'the metallic tip 34 to be held firmly and properly engaged with the above mentioned gland when used in the massaging thereof.

The socket 15 at the enlarged end of the handle 13 is of a size to enable the handle to be connected with the applicator attaching stud on a vibrator, so that when found receptacle 5 is filled with a hot or cold liquid as the occasion requires and an injection nozzle suitable for the purpose is connected with the tube 10. The fingers are now passed through the finger openings 21 and engaged with the bars 22 so that the nozzle of the in'lplcment may be held lirmly pressed against the part to be treated thereby. The nozzle is now inserted in proper position and the flow of liquid within the receptacle controlled through the operation of the valve 19. \Vhen the treatment of the case demands the use of an electrical current a suitable source of electrical energy is connected with the handle 13 as above described.

From the foregoing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, it is at once apparent that an implement; for

the purpose set forth has been provided 7 which will be highly etlicient in use.

Having described the invention What IS claimed as new, is:

1. A surgical implement having a valve handle, a tube within said handle, a contact band embedded in said handle and arranged concentrically of said tube, sockets in said handle having connection with said band and tube respectively, injection nozzles, a band at one end of each nozzle for engagement with the band in the handle, a contact plate on each of said nozzles, an electrical connection between said plate and the last mentioned band, a tube within each of said nozzles for connection with the tube in the handle, and perforated conducting caps for connection with said tubes.

2. A surgical implement having an injection nozzle handle having a. channel extending longitudinally thereof, a socket at one end of the handle in connnuni'cation with the channel, a tube within said channel, an enlargement at one end of said tube providing a socket at the end of said handle opposite the first mentioned socket, a valve casing within said handle at the other end of the tube, and a valve within said casing.

In testimony whereof I atlix my signature.

EDWARD H. GALLIGAN.
