1 14 Claims. Cl. 128-348) This invention relates to the art of surgery and, more particularly, to an improved and simplified surgical procedure for by-passing a portion of the blood circulatory system of a living human being or lesser animal having a similar circulatory system and to provide apparatus for use in carrying out such procedure.

It has been recognized for many years that various ailments and conditions of theblood circulatory system, which are detrimental to the well-being of an individual, may be successfully alleviated, corrected or rectified, provided that the involved portion or portions of the circulatory system are temporarily isolated from the remainder of the system for a sufficient length of time to permit requisite treatmentor surgery while not unduly jeopardizing the life of a patient.

It is essential that certain vital organs, such as the brain, be adequately supplied with blood. If the blood supply is interrupted for an appreciable length of time, a person can not live. Hence, it is of utmost importance, in by-passing a selected portion of the circulatory system, that necessary connections be made within safe time limits. Present-day procedures and techniques require interruption of blood fiow to vital organs for longer than safe time intervals while by-pass connections are being made and, for this reason, are generally not used.

My instant invention eliminates the difficulties experienced heretofore as will be evident to persons skilled in the art from the detailed description appearing further along herein.

A principal object of the invention is to provide an improved, simplified and safe surgical procedure for bypassing a portion of the blood circulatory system of a living human being or lesser animal having a similar circulatory system. 7

Another principal object of the invention is to provide novel and improved apparatus that may be advantageously used in carrying out a surgical procedure of the character indicated. Another object of the invention is to provide a cannular surgical instrument that has improved features of design and construction and that is adapted to be easily and quickly inserted in and form an adequate connection with a selected portion of a blood vessel, such as an artery or a vein.

A further object of the invention is to provide a cannular surgical instrument that may be readily assembled, adjusted, or dismantled, as required, without the use of tools.

A still further object of the invention is to provide an instrument of the type indicated that is simple in design, that is sturdy in construction, that is reasonable in manufacturing cost, that is adapted to be sterilized and that is capable of performing its intended functions in an entirely satisfactory manner.

The enumerated objects and additional objects, together with the advantages of the invention, 'will be apparent to persons trained in the art from the following detailed description and the accompanying drawings which re- 2,935,% Patented May 3, 1960 spectively describe and illustrate several forms of apparatus embodying the invention and several specific manners of practicing the invention.

Fig. 17 is a view taken along line 17-17 of Fig. 16.

Referring initially to Fig. 4, a system of apparatus or conduit means, generally indicated by numeral 20, is adapted to by-pass a portion of the blood circulatory system that is partly shown in that figure. Conduit means 20 comprises a plurality of cannular surgical instruments C1, C2 and C3, a heart pump 21 having an inlet 22 and an outlet 23, and a blood filter 24 having an inlet 25 and an outlet 26. Instruments C1 and C2 are connected by a conduit arrangement 27 to heart pump inlet 22. This conduit arrangement includes a Y-shaped fitting 28. One branch of fitting 28 is connected to instrument C1 by a section of tubing 30, a second branch of the fitting is connected to conduit C2 by a section of tubing 31 and the third branch of the fitting is connected to the pump inlet by a section of tubing 32. communica-' tion is established'between heart pump outlet 23 and blood filter inlet 25 by a section of tubing 33. Outlet 26 of the blood filter is in turn connected to instrument C3 by a section of tubing 34. Tubing sections 30 through 34 may be made of any one of a variety of flexible materials including rubber and certain polyvinyl thermoessence plastics, such. as copolymers of vinyl chloride and vinyl acetate, or polyethylene, which are particularly well suited for the purposes of this invention.

Instruments C1, C2 and C3 are preferably identical in design butmay diflfer in size. Thus, instruments C1 and C2 may be of a smaller size than instrument C3 since the internal diameters of the pulmonary veins to which instruments Cland C2 are connected are less than the corresponding diameter of the left subclavian artery to which instrument C3 is being connected.

Blood pump 21 may be of conventional construction. Similarly, blood filter 24 may be of any suitable type, presently available. The function of the blood filter is to remove air, blood clots or other undesirable material that may be entrained in the blood prior to transmitting blood by conduit means 20 into. the left subclavian artery.

Reference is next had to Figs. through for an understanding of the construction of instrument C1, it

. being understood that instruments C2 and C3 are of like Instrument 01 includes a body member, made of a suitable metal and having a pair of merging construction.

bores 36 and 37 formed therein. As is shown in Fig. 11,

bore 37 is at a slight angle to bore 36. A first tubular as indicated at 41 to facilitate insertion into a blood ves-:

sel. The juncture of tubular members 38 and 40 define an opening 42. Body member 35 and tubular members 38 and 40 constitute a generally L-shaped conduit.

A third tubular member 43 is telescopically positioned in tubular member 40 and forms a liquid-tight fit therewith. Member 43 has inclined inner and outer end surfaces as indicated at 44 and 45 (Fig. 9). A port 46 is formed in thewall of tubular member 43. When the parts are in the relative position shown inFigs. 7 and 9, tubular member 43 communicates with tubular member 40 and also communicates with opening 42 and the interior'of tubular member 38 'by way of port 46. Upon predetermined movement oftubular member 43 toward the left, as viewed in Figs. 7 and 9, port 46 will be placed out of alignment with opening 42 and a portion of the wall of the tubular member will be disposed across opening 42 to thereby prevent flow past that openmg.

Tubular member 43 is provided with a series of teeth 47 that constitute a rack. The rack is adapted-to cooperate with devices that will now be described toefiect sliding movement of tubular member 43 with respect to tubular member 46. Such devices comprise a rotary shaft 48 that "is mounted in bore 37, 'a pinion gear 50 at the inner end of the shaft and meshing with teeth 47,

and a knurled operating knob 51 at the outer end of the shaft. The shaft has an annular groove 52 (Fig. 9). A screw 53 is removably secured to body member 35 and is provided with a pin extension 54 that registers with annular groove 52. It will be apparent that pin 54 permits rotary movement of the shaft but prevents longitudinal movement of the shaft relative to the body member. It will also be apparent that rotation of the shaft through the medium of operating knob 51 will, by virtue of the described rack and pinion arrangement, efiect corresponding sliding movement of tubular member 43 relative to tubular member 40.

Fig. 11 illustrates certain parts of a surgical device which is the same as that shown in Figs. 5 through 10 except that it utilizes a spring-pressed detent means 55 in lieu ofscrew 53 and pin 54 for releasably maintaining shaft 48 in operative position in the body member. Means 55 comprises a leaf spring 56 that is aflixed at one end to the body member by screws or the like 57. Se-

cured to the other end of the leaf spring is a detent pin 58 that is slideable in a bore 59 in the body member. As shown, spring 56 normally and yieldingly maintains pin 58 in registry with annular groove 52. The spring may be flexed toward the left as viewed in Fig. 11 to effect disengagement of the pin from the shaft and permit withdrawal of the shaft from bore 37 when the instrument is dismantled for purposes of sterilization.

Fig. 4 illustrates, in part, the manner of utilizing conduit means 20 for the purpose of by-passing the left auricle and left ventricle of the heart. Cannular instruments C1 and C2 are shown as being operatively connected to corresponding pulmonary veins.

The manner of connecting'cannular instrument C3 to the left subclavian artery will now be described. A pair of surgical clamps 69 is applied in spaced relation to a selected portion of the artery thereby temporarily terminating flow of blood through that artery. A transverse slit is next formed in the artery intermediate the clamps.

Tubular member 43 having been earlier retracted in tubular member 40, the latter is inserted in the artery through the slit after which shaft 48 is rotated to protract tubular member 43 into the artery in a direction down stream of normal blood flow. Tubular member 40, the joining parts of this tubular member and body member 35, and tubular member 43 areof such size and configuration as to form a snug fit with the engaging parts of the artery wall. if necessary to insure against bleeding, tape may be applied in the region of the slit after insertion of the cannular device in the artery. It will be noted that an additional surgical clamp 60 is applied to tubing section 34 to prevent flow of blood from the artery into conduit means 29 while the connection is being made. Upon completion of the connection which, by the way may be made very quickly, the clamps on the subclavian artery are removed allowing blood to flow through that artery and through tubular members 40 and 43 but not through conduit means 20.

Connections between cannular instruments C1 and C2 and corresponding pulmonary veins are made in the same manner as the connection between cannular instrument C3 and the left subclavian artery. At the times that instruments C1 and C2 are connected to'the pulmonary veins, a clamp is applied to tubing section 32. With instruments C1, C2 and C3 connected to corresponding veins or arteries and with clamps 60 applied to only the conduit means, as shown in Fig. 4, blood ilow through the system will be normal. By-passing the left side of the heart may now be quickly accomplished 'by applying suitable clamps to the pulmonary veins and the left subclavian artery at points between the corresponding cannular instruments and the heart, thereby interrupting lood flow into or from the left side of the heart, and by substantially simultaneously removing the clamps from tubing sections 32 and 34 and placing the blood pump in active service. All or selected parts of conduit means 24}, such as tubing section 34, may be primed 'with whole blood prior to completing the by-pass procedure.

Figs. 13 through 17 illustrate ajmodified form of cannular surgical instrument C5 for use in a conduit means 65 that is adapted to by-pass a portion of the blood circulatory system, as shown in Fig. 12. Conduit means 65 is preferably the same as conduit means 20, except that it employs a pair of surgical instruments C5; in place of instruments C1 and C2.

Instrument C5 comprises a first conduit 66 that is L-shaped, as shown in Fig. 13, and that comprises :1 rectilinear first part 67, a rectilinear second part 68 and a curvedthird part 69 intermediate parts 67 and 68. Conduit 66 has a through opening 70 in the region of the juncture of parts 68 and 69. A, resilient tongue 71 having an inwardly projecting teat 72 is struck from conduit first part 67 (Figs. 15 and 16).

A tubular member 73 forms a liquid-tight slide fit with conduit first part 67. This tubular member has a plurality of axially spaced external annular grooves 74, 75 and 76 and includes a tapered outer end portion 77 that has a rounded tip to facilitate entry into a blood vessel and prevent damage to body tissue with which it may come in contact. As is best shown in Fig. 16, teat 72 is adapted to register with any one of annular grooves 74, 75 and 76 whereby to releasably maintain tubular member 73 in selected longitudinal position relative to conduit first part 67.

Conduit part 68 is provided with a pair of diametrically opposed end notches 80 and carries a spring detent 81. This detent includes a leaf spring 82 that is secured at its lower end to conduit part 68 by screws or the like 83 and that carries a detent pin 84 at its upper end.

A second conduit 85 is positioned in conduit part 68 and forms a liquid-tight sliding fit therewith. Conduit 85 has an inclined lower end surface 86. The upper end portion of conduit 85 is of reduced diameter as indicated at 87 in order that it may be readily inserted in tubing section 30 of the conduit means. Conduit 85 carries a knurled collar 88 by which it may be gripped to effect sliding movement with respect to conduit 66. C01- lar 88 has an external annular groove 89 that is adapted to receive the free end of detent pin 84 whereby to releasably maintain conduits 66 and 85in the relative position shown in Fig. 13. Collar 88 also has a pair of extensions or keys 9%) that are adapted to register with corresponding notches 80 upon release of detent means 81 1 and downward movement of conduit 85 relative to conduit 66. When conduit 85 is in its lowermost position relative to conduit 66 (Fig. 16), it extends across and prevents passage of blood or other liquid through opening 70. At such times, detent pin 84 engages the upper end of collar 86 to prevent accidental upward movement of conduit 84 with respect to conduit 66.

Turning again to Fig. 12, conduit means 65 includes a cannular surgical instrument C3, earlier described, that is shown as being operatively connected to the left sub-v clavian artery. The conduit means also includes a pair of surgical instruments C5, only one of which is shown in Fig. 12. As illustrated, instrument C5 projects through an opening 91 in the wall of the left auricle of the heart and into a pulmonary vein; and opening 70 is positioned within the auricle. Conduit 66 is taped, by use of a purse string, to the portions of the heart wall defining opening 91 as indicated at 92 to prevent bleeding. The pulmonary vein is similarly taped, as indicated at 93, to prevent seepage of blood between the outer surface of instrument 66 and the inner surface of the pulmonary vein.

At the time instrument C5 is disposed in the heart, as shown in Fig. 12, its parts are in the relative position shown in Fig. 13, that is, conduit 85 is in its raised position relative to conduit 66 to permit blood supplied by the pulmonary vein to enter the auricle. When the physical connections between conduit means 65 and the blood vessels have been completed, conduit 85 is moved downwardly in conduit 66 to close opening 70 and the clamps are relocated to permit blood flow through the conduit means and the selected veins and artery thereby by-passing the left auricle and ventricle. It is believed that the manner of practicing the invention with the use of a conduit means including cannular surgical instru 'ments C3 and C5 will be readily understood from the foregoing taken in conjunction with Fig. 12 without further description.

Fig. 2 illustrates the use of a conduit means 94 for by-passing a coarctation in the descending aorta. This conduit means comprises a pair of cannular surgical instruments C3 and a flexible tube 95connected thereto. Upon completion of the physical .connections between the conduit means and the indicated arteries, clamps 96 are applied to the aorta to opposite sides of the coarctation, as illustrated. This allows the blood to by-pass the coa'rctation. The surgeon then removes the restricted portion of the artery between clamps, after which the clamps and the conduit means are removed permitting resumption of normal blood flow.

If desired, the coarctation may be bypassed, with the aid of conduit means 94, by inserting one of the instruments C3 in an upper artery and the other instrument C3 in a branch of the descending aorta below the diaphragm and connecting the instruments by flexible tube 95, as indicated by the broken line in Fig. 2. Obviously, other portions of the blood circulatory system may be by-passed by the use of conduit means constructed in accordance with this invention.

Fig. 3 illustrates the use of conduit means 94 for the purpose of by-passing an aneurysm in the descending aorta. The procedure followed here is similar to that in by-passing the coarctation shown in Fig.2.

From the foregoing, it is believed that the procedure and apparatus for practicing my present invention will be readily comprehended by persons skilled in the art. It is to be clearly understood, however, that various changes in the sequence of procedural steps and in the apparatus herewith shown and described may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention as defined by the appended claims.
