or` NEW YORK, N. Y.

VAGINAL BALLOON.

Application led September for convenience of positioning the same within the vagina as a step preliminary to the use of the article.

The invention also provides vessels, tubes and an air pump as accessories, one of the vessels receiving the warm water whereby the balloon is expanded and the other vessel receiving the water from the balloon when it is required to replace the water or to collapse the balloon prior to its removal after treatment.

`While the drawings illustrate a preferred embodiment of the invention it is to be understood that in adapting the means to meet specific needs and requirements, the design may be varied and such other changes in the minor details of construction may be resorted to withinthe scope of the invention as claimed, without departing from the spirit thereof.

For a full understanding of the invention and the merits thereof, reference is to be had to the following description and the drawings hereto attached, in which- Figure 1 is a diagrammatic view of a therapeutic appliance embodying the invention and showing the rubber balloon expanded, and

Figure 2 is an enlarged sectional view of the hollow plug with the rubber balloon F folded and located therein for convenience of nlacing'the article in position. v

Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the followingdescription and designated in both views of the drawings by like reference characters.

The appliance embodies a hollow plug of suitable material, such as aluminum and comprises a body portion 1, an outer flange v 2, and a stem 3, which tapers slightly and is corrugated to make firm connection with a rubber tube 4. The body portion A1 of 29, 1926. seriai No. 138,526.

the plug tapers to facilitate the introduction thereof into the duct, or opening when adjusting the device for service. The outer flange 2 provides a Vstop to limit the movement of the plug when placing it in position. A rubber balloon 5, such as generally provided for inflation has its neck por-- tion slipped upon the body portion 1 ofthe plug and made rfast thereto by means of a suitable binder 6 which usually consists of a thread, or other filament. he base of the body 1 adjacent the outer flange 2 is con-l tracted to provide a seat for receiving the binder 6 and the port-ion of the neck of the balloon confined thereby. The plugis of a size to admit of the body portion 1 receiving the balloon 5, as indicated most clearly in Figure 2, and when the balloon is thus folded within the body of the plug the latter with the balloon attached. may be conveniently and easily placed within the opening or duct of the part to be treated.

Forming a part of the apparatus are two vessels 7 and 8 which may consist of bottles or jars of suitable size, the vessel. 7 being designed to contain the warm water for expanding the balloon 5 and the vessel 8 receiving the water discharged from the balloon. An induction tube 9 is associated with the vessel 7 and an eduction tube 10 is associated with the vessel 8. A Y or branched coupling 11 connects the tubes 9 and with the tube 4. Each of the tubes 9 and 10 is provided with a. clip v19. for controlling the flow of the water therethrough. The clips 12 may be of any approved construction generally employed in connection with the tubes of fountain syringes. A stopper 13 closes the vessel 7 and a tube 14 of rigid material extends therethrough within a short distance of the bottomof the vessel and the induction'tube 9. is coupled to its projecting end. A tube 15 of rigid material is also connected with the stopper 13 and terminates within the upper portion of the vessel 7. A suitable air pump 16 is connected with the tube 15 by means of la tube 17 and maybe of' any construction and usually consists of a bulb, such as employed in connection with syringes, atomizers and analogous articles. The tube 10 extends into the vessel 8 to discharge the water from the balloon therein when withdrawing the contents of the said balloon.

In the practical application of the invention the bottle or vessel 7 is supplied with warm water and the balloon 5 is folded into the body l of the plug after which the latter is introduced into the duct or the part to be treated. The pump 1.6 is now manipulated which results in forcing the water from the vessel 7 through the tubes 9. and l into the balloon 5 which is thereby eX- panded so as to extend into the vaginal fornices and operate as a true poultice, thereby obviating the, inconveniences incident to use of the ordinary douche. As a result the patient is enabled toy stand a high temperature and the Vaginal flora is not disturbed. l/Vhen expanding the balloon the outflow through the eduction tube 10 is cut off by means of the clip applied thereto. After the balloon has been properly eX- panded the clip applied to the induction tube 9 is operated to prevent outfiow therethrough. l/Vhen the water in the balloon cools it may be drawn off into the vessel 8 yand the water thus Withdrawn may be replaced by manipulating the pump 16, the clip applied to the induction tube 9 being operated to insurea flow of the Water therethrough. lVhen it is required to withdraw the device the balloon 5 is permitted to collapse by drawing off the Water therefrom into the vessel S.

Having @hns described the invention, i

ture.
