Description

    CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application is a continuation of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/031,352 filed Feb. 21, 2011, which claims the benefit of and priority to U.S. Provisional Application Ser. No. 61/355,379 filed on Jun. 16, 2010, and the disclosures of each of the above-identified applications are hereby incorporated by reference in their entirety.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Technical Field
  • The present disclosure relates to a flexible access assembly for use in single incision surgical procedures. More particularly, the present disclosure relates to a flexible access assembly having a mechanism for the removal of bodily fluids.
  • Background of Related Art
  • Today, many surgical procedures are performed through small incisions in the skin, as compared to the larger incisions typically required in traditional procedures, in an effort to reduce both trauma to the patient and recovery time. Generally, such procedures are referred to as “endoscopic”, unless performed on the patient's abdomen, in which case the procedure is referred to as “laparoscopic”. Throughout the present disclosure, the term “minimally invasive” should be understood to encompass both endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures.
  • During a typical minimally invasive procedure, surgical objects, such as surgical access devices (e.g., trocar and cannula assemblies) or endoscopes, are inserted into the patient's body through the incision in tissue. In general, prior to the introduction of the surgical object into the patient's body, insufflation gases are used to enlarge the area surrounding the target surgical site to create a larger, more accessible work area. Accordingly, the maintenance of a substantially fluid-tight seal is desirable so as to prevent the escape of the insufflation gases and the deflation or collapse of the enlarged surgical site.
  • To this end, various access devices with valves and seals are used during the course of minimally invasive procedures and are widely known in the art. However, a continuing need exists for surgical access devices that can facilitate the accessibility of an underlying tissue site with relative ease and with minor inconvenience for the surgeon.
  • SUMMARY
  • Accordingly, an access assembly for insertion through a single incision is disclosed herein. The access assembly includes a body, e.g., a foam body, having a proximal end and a distal end and a plurality of lumens extending through the foam body, each of the lumens including a sleeve extending at least a portion of the length of the body. The foam body includes a central portion and a lower rim at a distal end of the central portion. The lower rim defines a circular recess, about the body, along a proximal side of the lower rim.
  • The body has an upper rim at a proximal end of the central portion. Both the lower rim and an upper rim have a diameter greater than a diameter of the central portion. The access assembly may define four lumens. The sleeves are integrally formed with the body, or instead, the sleeves may be securely affixed with the body. The sleeves may be formed from one polymer and plastic. The sleeves may define a circular cross-section. The sleeves may include a braided material. The access assembly may further include one or more cannula assemblies inserted through the plurality of lumens. The body may include a Parylene coating. Various other coatings, e.g., hydrophilic, hydrophobic, bio-agents, anti-infection, analgesic, may also be employed.

  • Other features of the present disclosure will become apparent from the following detailed description, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, which illustrate, by way of example, the principles of the present disclosure.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • Embodiments of the presently disclosed access assembly will now be described in detail with reference to the drawings wherein like numerals designate identical or corresponding elements in each of the several views. As is common in the art, the term “proximal” refers to that part or component closer to the user or operator, i.e. surgeon or physician, while the term “distal” refers to that part or component further away from the user.
  • One type of minimal invasive surgery described herein is multiple instrument access through a single surgical port. This technique is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, which permits a surgeon to operate through a single entry point, typically the patient's navel. The disclosed procedure involves insufflating the body cavity with a housing member positioned within an opening in the patient's skin. Instruments including an endoscope and additional instruments such as graspers, staplers, forceps or the like may be introduced within the port to carry out the surgical procedure. The presently disclosed access port may be used with a surgically created incision, a naturally occurring opening such as the anus or the vagina, or in non-laparoscopic procedures.
  • Referring to FIGS. 1-3, there is disclosed an access assembly 10 for use in single incision surgery. Access assembly 10 is flexible or compressible to allow it to be inserted through a single incision in the body of a patient such that after insertion it will expand and seal within the incision. Additionally, the flexible nature of access assembly 10 allows surgical instruments inserted therethrough to be manipulated about their axes and thus allow a higher degree of movement of the surgical instruments to orient them relative to the tissue being operated upon.
  • Still referring to FIGS. 1-3, access assembly 10 includes a flexible body or housing 12 defining a plurality of lumens 16, 18, 20. Body 12 may be formed of various materials such as, for example, silicone, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), rubber, foam, gel, etc. In this manner, body 12 of access assembly 10 may be compressed or squeezed and inserted through an incision in the body of a patient. In one embodiment, body 12 includes TPE material that is infused with an inert gas, e.g. CO2 or nitrogen, to form a foam structure. Body 12 may be coated with a lubricant, e.g. Parylene N or C, in order to create a lubricious surface finish on all external surfaces. Various other coatings, e.g., hydrophilic, hydrophobic, bio-agents, anti-infection, analgesic, may also be employed. In this manner, the coating facilitates insertion of body 12 into an incision and insertion of cannula assemblies (FIG. 7) therethrough.
  • With reference still to FIGS. 1-3, body 12 defines a substantially hourglass shape when viewed from the side, including a central portion 22 having an upper rim 24 located at a proximal end 26 of central portion 22 and a lower rim 28 located at a distal end 30 of central portion 22. Upper rim 24 and lower rim 28 aid in preventing movement of access assembly 10 longitudinally through the incision “I” (FIG. 4) in the patient. The lower rim 28 defines a circular recess 40 along a proximal side 41 of the lower rim 28. The recess 40 encircles the body 12 to form a circular indentation completely about the body 12.
  • A vertical lumen 42 extends through the body 12 and connects with a horizontal lumen 44 to produce a longitudinal passageway 43 that extends from the proximal end 26 of the central portion 22 to a horizontal passageway 45 that extends into the recess 40. It is contemplated that passageway 43 and/or passageway 45 may be coated with an anti-coagulant.
  • As disclosed, the recess 40 is defined by a semi-circular cross-section. However, it is contemplated that any cross-sectional shape may be used. It is also contemplated that the horizontal lumen 44 may intersect with the recess 40 from any relative position, including along a bottom of the recess 40. It is further contemplated that the cross-sectional shape may vary about a circumference of the recess 40.
  • Lumens 16, 18, 20 extend through body 12 and define longitudinal axes configured to receive a cannula assembly 50 (FIG. 7), a valve assembly 60 and/or other insufflation apparatus. As shown, lumens 16, 18, 20 include sleeves 16 a, 18 a, 20 a, respectively, extending the length of body 12. Sleeves 16 a, 18 a, 20 a may be integrally formed with body 12, or instead may be securely affixed to body 12 using adhesive, ultrasonic welding or other suitable means. Sleeves 16 a, 18 a, 20 a are formed of a plastic, polymer or other suitable material and are configured to prevent tearing of body 12 as a cannula assembly or other apparatus is inserted therethrough. Sleeves 16 a, 18 a, 20 a are typically formed of a harder or less flexible material than body 12 to resist stretching. Sleeves 16 a, 18 a, 20 a may also be coated with a lubricant to assist in insertion of cannula assemblies 50 and/or valve assembly 60.
  • Referring now to FIGS. 4-7, the use of access assembly 10 in a single incision surgical procedure will now be described. Although access assembly 10 will be described as relates to relates to a procedure for excising and removing a body organ, the aspects of the present disclosure may be modified for use in any closed procedure and should not be read as limited to the procedure herein described.
  • Referring initially to FIG. 4, a single incision “I” is formed through a body tissue “T” and above a body organ, such as, for example, kidney “K”. Turning now to FIG. 5, once incision “I” has been formed through body tissue “T”, body 12 of access assembly 10 is squeezed or compressed to reduce body 12 to a relatively smaller diameter for insertion through incision “I”. As noted hereinabove, body 12 is formed of a flexible material which allows access assembly 10 to be compressed. It should be recognized that the body 12 may be compressed into any suitable configuration prior to being inserted into an incision, not merely the configuration shown in FIG. 5. For example, in an embodiment, prior to insertion the body 12 is clamped at its distal end while the proximal end of the housing 12 remains essentially uncompressed, and the clamped distal end is inserted into the incision.
  • Referring to FIG. 6, once flexible access assembly 10 has been inserted through incision “I”, pressure on body 12 is released, allowing body 12 to return towards its initial uncompressed state within incision “I”. Typically, the incision “I” is formed having a size that is smaller than the diameter of the initial uncompressed state of the housing 12. In this manner, when in place within the incision “I”, the housing 12 contacts and presses against the inner surface of the incision “I”, thereby retracting the opening and sealing with the incision “I”. Since incisions are often slit-shaped when formed, the portion of the housing 12 that is located within the incision may be somewhat oval-shaped (when viewed from above). As noted hereinabove, body 12 includes upper rim 24 and lower rim 28 to prevent migration of access assembly 10 through incision “I” in body tissue “T”.
  • Turning to FIG. 7, once access assembly 10 has been positioned above kidney “K”, cannula assemblies 50 and/or valve assembly 60 may be inserted through seal lumens 16, 18, 20 to operate on kidney “K”. Cannula assembly 50 includes a housing 52 configured to sealingly receive an instrument 5 and an elongated cannula 52 configured to extend through one of lumens 16, 18, 20. Housing 52 may include an insufflation port 53. Although shown including cannula assembly 50, any cannula assembly capable of being received through lumens 16, 18, 20 may be used with access assembly 10. Valve assembly 60 is configured to be received through one of lumens 16, 18, 20. Valve assembly 60 may include a stopcock or other type of valve 62 for selectively providing insufflation gas through access assembly 10. Although shown including valve assembly 60, any valve assembly capable of sealed reception within lumens 16, 18, 20 may be used with access assembly 10.
  • Still referring to FIG. 7, once the body cavity has been properly insufflated, either through valve assembly 60 or insufflation port 53 of cannula assembly 50, kidney “K” may be operated upon to excise it from the surrounding tissue. One or more surgical instruments, such as, for example, tissue graspers or surgical staplers, are inserted through and manipulated within cannula assemblies 50 to complete the procedure. As shown, instrument 5 may be inserted and retracted, in the direction of arrows “A”, through any of seal lumens 16, 18, 20 that have received a cannula assembly 50 therethrough. Due to the flexible nature of access assembly 10, cannula assembly 50 may be flexed relative thereto. In this manner, once instrument 5 is inserted through cannula assembly 50, a proximal end 5 a of instrument 5 may be manipulated in any direction, as indicated by arrows “B”. Thus, access assembly 10 permits a surgeon to manipulate or orient instrument 5 at various locations relative to the tissue being operated upon. Cannula assemblies 50 may also be flexed relative to each other. In this manner, a first instrument inserted through a first cannula assembly may be manipulated relative to a second instrument inserted through a second cannula assembly.
  • With continued reference to FIG. 7, the recess 40 functions to collect bodily fluids 48 from the incision “I”. A vacuum source 64 may be connected with the vertical lumen 42, which is connected with the recess 40 by the horizontal lumen 44. As a result, any bodily fluids 48 that are collected within the recess 40 can be removed. Thus, bodily fluids 48 may be collected and dispensed with during a minimally invasive surgical procedure to aid in the prevention of contamination and visual impairment of the surgical work site.
  • Upon completion of the procedure, cannula assemblies 50 and valve assembly 60 are removed from respective lumens 16, 18, 20. Access assembly 10 is then compressed or squeezed such that it may be removed from incision “I”. Incision “I” is then closed in a conventional manner.
  • Turning now to FIGS. 4-6, an alternative embodiment of an access assembly according to the present disclosure is shown generally as access assembly 110. Access assembly 110 is substantially similar to access assembly 10 described hereinabove, and will only be described as relates to the differences therebetween. Access assembly 110 includes a body 112 defining a plurality of lumens 116, 118, 120. Each of lumens 116, 118, 120 includes a sleeve 116 a, 118 a, 120 a, respectively. Each of sleeves 116 a, 118 a, 120 a is formed of a braided mesh. As with sleeves 16 a, 18 a, 20 a, described hereinabove, sleeves 116 a, 118 a, 120 a are configured to prevent tearing of body 112 as cannula assembly and other apparatus are inserted therethrough.
  • It will be understood that various modifications may be made to the embodiments disclosed herein. For example, as noted hereinabove, the disclosed flexible access assembly may be provided with multiple lumens in excess of the disclosed three lumens. Additionally, the diameters or configuration of the disclosed lumens need not be identical but may be varied depending upon the contemplated surgical instruments to be utilized therethrough. Therefore, the above description should not be construed as limiting, but merely as exemplifications of particular embodiments. Those skilled in the art will envision other modifications within the scope and spirit of the claims appended hereto.
