  • [0003]
    Disposable gynecologic instrument for dilation of body cavities by fluid injection, according to the invention, solves the problem of simple construction of an disposable gynecologic instrument, simply for use, which because of its suitable handle solve the problem of gradual (controlled) dilation of body cavities realized by simple pressure of two fingers, whereas the instruments are delivered to the user packed, sterilized and ready for use, and which after use may be either completely rejected or returned back to the manufacturer as secondary raw material where, at the manufacturer, reservoir may be re-filled, replaced used dilation probe (catheter balloon), where folding the instrument may be finished, done its sterilization, packaging and return to the market.
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • [0004]
    It is known that in the practice are used various methods of expansion (dilation) of body cavities, in which it is necessary to be overcomed the natural resistance of muscle tissue, especially at the uterine cervix in women. As proved in practice, openings, after the spread of these, retain their increased diameter for a few hours, and in the beginning of the last century it was developed the application of cylindrical shaped metal inserts with diameters from 4 mm to 12 mm, which are inserted starting from narrowest, and than wider and next wider serialy inserted and extracted after some time when the cavity is adjusted to a certain diameter. This, so-called,. Hegar's method, which is now widely applied, has a series of shortcomings whereas the biggest problem was damage of muscle fibers, and also a high probability in occurrence of various infections in the application of this method. The basic drawback is the application of large forces during insertion of these inserts one by one, as well occurrence of friction during insertation of inserts, which is also followed by pain during this procedure.
  • [0005]
    In recent years, by the development of technology come in sight a large number of different solutions based on use of various dilation probes which makes the dilation of body cavities applying radial forces created by a radial expanding of dilation probe after insertion in the body cavity the probe with the narrowest diameter.
  • [0006]
    Like in the professional literature, so in patent documentation, there may be found a whole range of different solutions which are based on the application of dilation probe that is by suitable medical instrument inserted in the body cavity, and then, applying the hydraulic pressure gradually radially spreading the part of probe inserted in the body opening as to a previously determined diameter.
  • [0007]
    Considering the problems and disadvantages of known solutions, eg. making the replacement of materials that are unsuitable or even unallowed to contact with human tissue, or disadvantages in serial manufacturing of dilation probes in certain features, or design of various medical instruments capable to achieve the appropriate radial pressure that would allow a gradual and evenly spread of body cavity to a certain size, there has been reached a construction of disposable gynecologic instrument for dilation of body cavities by fluid injection, according to this invention.
  • DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION
  • [0008]
    Disposable gynecologic instrument for dilation of body cavities by fluid injection, according to the invention, represent a manual hydraulic pump, which in appearance resembles a gun, and is presented as a whole with dilation probe (shown on a particular drawing), and which is located and locked on the top of the cannula). This gynecological instrument consists of a instrument body with an reservoir for incompressible fluid in the handle, whereas the instrument body and a handle are made in whole form and are presented as so-called pistol handle. Next on the body of the instrument is the trigger the pressing of which (by controlled force) starts the piston pressing the fluid volume within the cylinder filled with incompressible fluid, and so pumps out the incompressible fluid from the reservoir through the lower cannula and irreversible valve (to prevent the return of incompressible fluid back in the reservoir) and pushes fluid through the second irreversible valve (to prevent return of incompressible fluid from catheter balloon of dilation probe), into the main pipe, and then into catheter balloon of dilation probe, which is radially spreaded, causing by this way a gradually spreading of the body cavity into which is inserted the balloon of dilation probe. The main instruments pipe is by screw thread attached to the front of the instrument body, and on the protruding end of the main pipe is by screw thread fixed support of a catheter balloon of the dilation probe, which is by the lock of catheter balloon fixed to the support. On the body of the gynecologic instrument is anticipated a vent structure, which after the use of the gynecologic instrument and realization of the anticipated physical enlargement of the opening (when the catheter balloon is fully inflated) allows to reduce the pressure in it, by simply removal the vent lock, which allows return of incompressible fluid into the reservoir, and lowering the piston to the end of piston stroke, vent lock will lock the piston in his final position, which disabled his return to the operating position, and thus at the same time prevents the repeated use of gynecology instrument.

  • [0019]
    Its function is executed by pressing the trigger 4 when the incompressible fluid is with main piston 42 pumped out from the reservoir 3 into the main pipe 5 and further into dilation probe, ie. into the catheter balloon. As already said, the irreversible valves, 22 at the inlet of the cylinder, preventing the return of incompessible fluid in the reservoir 3, and valve 12 at the outlet from the cylinder prevent the return of incompressible fluid from the balloon.
  • [0020]
    When the probe balloon is inflated to the desired diameter size of the body cavity, ie. when it is sufficiently broad, it is necessary to reduce the pressure in the balloon. This would be done, first by removal of the vent protector 9 by simply pulling the ring, which will release the shaft of the vent piston 83, and later by pressing the button 8 vent piston 83 moves within the cylinder until it came down to the end, when lock 85 of the vent piston lock it in the bottom position, preventing his return to the original position and disable Disposable gynecologic instrument for dilation of body cavities by fluid injection disposable gynecologic instrument for dilation of body cavities by fluid injection for re-use.
