SUTURE ArrLIANcE.

Astra-tanned name-191s. Seria11lTof7 2B'2Q.

To ql l whom it may mean i Be it known that we, {HARRQE C. DE and JOHN E. DE BAUN, citizens of the United States, residing at rlackeasaek,

' county of B er en, and State of New J ersey, and Mount em Ion Westchester eouhty, and State of; New York, respectively, have invented certain new and useful Improvein. 'eAppl'ianes, of what the following is a specification. V p

This invention, relates to suture appuances of the kind characterized by a piece of fabric or the like having adhesive substance' on. one face thereoffor cementing it to the skin provided with lateral cords or threads, so that when two such pieces are placed in adhering relation to the skin at opposite sides of a wound or sore their eords or threads may be employed in the operatioh of tyingthem together to draw together and maintain in a more or less closed state the edges of the skin at the place affected.

The object of the invention is to simplify and cheapen the manufacture of such articles'and to provide a suture appliance which convenience and facility of application but as an article of manufacture and sale.

The invention is fully illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein- Figure 1 is a view of the improved suture appliance as it would appear when in use; Fig. 2 a fragment of a strip of the material from which the two suture members shown in Fig. 1 have been cut; Fig. 3 a transverse sectional view of the strip shown in Fig. 2; Fig. 4 a fragment of a modified form of a strip of the material, illustrating an auxiliary piece therein included as a means to preserve the tying threads in a definite arrangement until ready for use; and, Fig. 5 a fragment of another modified form of a strip of the material somewhat similar to the form shown in Fig. 4.

Each member of the suture appliance as shown in Figs. 1 to 3 consists of a fabric piece a one face of which is coated with adhesive substance I) for cementing it to the skin at one side of a wound, sore or the like. It also has projecting therefrom at suitable intervals the tying threads or cords, hereinafter termed tying threads. It has been proposed in this art to form these tying threads separately from the fabric piece, 'thereupoh securing them to the same by tying them thereto or otherwisean ex edient which fails to make the article neatand shapely in form and otherwise suitable for. the purpose. According to this ihveiitioii, the. tying threads, 0, projecting from one of the edges of the piece a at spaced intervals,are woven into the said piece. This very materially reduces the cost of and simplifies the manufeature, and b sides produces an article that is at once heat in form and appearance, is of uniform thickness throughout, being devoid of knots, iinutilized loose ends or projections of any kind, and in which the tying threads are se urely anchored in the piece. "By forming the tying threads coarser or thicker than the, other threads of the piece the secure binding of the same therein against being pulled out in the operation of drawingthe edges 'of the wound together by means of them is augmented; in many instances, however, the mere interweaving of the tying threads with the other threads of the piece will be suflicient for this purpose, especially after the adhesive substance has teen applied.

A strip of material, as shown in Fig. 2, from which the members shown in Fig. 1 are cut, may be made up in any desired length and formed into rolls or other suitable packages; the tying threads are of course usually parallel with the weft of the fabric.

In order thatthe tying threads projecting from the fabric piece may be kept until used in a definite arrangement, 2'. e., from assuming an entangled or otherwise confusing disposition, they may be attached to an auxiliary piece of suitable material in the same order relatively to each other as they are in the piece provided with the adhesive substance. Thus, in Fig. 4 d is the fabric piece having the adhesive substance cl on one face thereof, 6 the tying threads and f the auxiliary piece, the latter in the present instance being woven and having the tying threads interwoven with the threads thereof, and the whole being formed as a strip or any other desired length in a single weaving operation; at the time of use the piece f is to be cut away on the line 00 and discarded. In Fig. 5, the two fabric pieces 9 g, connected by the tying thread It interwoven with the threads of said pieces, may each have adhesive substance 71/ applied to oneface thereof, both being thus useful as suture appliances on cutting the tying threads on the line y.

It is to be understood that one of the principal features of our invention is the securing by a suitable adhesive body part such as a, 03 or g, of one end-portion of each of the projecting tying threads in contact therewith at a series of points extending longitudinally of said end-portion, regardless of whether this is accomplished by incorporating the tying threads into the weave of said body part (if woven) or otherwise.

Having thus fully described our invention, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. The herein described suture member including an adhesive body-part formed of sheet material and tying threads each having one end-portion thereof projecting from one edge of said body-part and its other end-portion held at a seriesof points extending longitudinally thereof by said bodypart in contact therewith.

2. The herein-described suture member including an adhesive body-part formed of sheet material and tying threads each having one end-portion thereof projecting from one edge of said body-part and its other end portion held for substantially its full length by said body-part in contact therewith.

3. The herein-described article of manu- 1 facture to be used for sutural purposes consisting of two separated body-parts formed of sheet material and one being adhesive- 5. The herein-described article of manufacture to be used for sutural purposes including a piece of woven material. having 7 adhesive substance on one face thereof, tying threads projecting from one of the edges of said piece'at spaced intervals and woven into said piece, and another piece to which said threads are attached in substantially the same order as they are woven into the first-named piece.

In testimony whereof we affiX our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
