MEDICAL APPLIANCE OF SUCTION TYPE.

Application filed June 30,

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, MAsAiiioHi TESHIMA, a manufacturer of and dealer in medical appliances, a subject of the Emperor of 5 Japan, residing at #25, 8-chome, Honzaimoku-cho, Kyobashi-ku, in the city of Tokyo and prefecture of Tokyo, Japan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Medical Appliances of Suction 10 Type, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in medical appliances which are especially adapted for use in the treatment particularly of diseases of the generative organs of women.

The primary objectin view is to provide a device of this character by means of which the secretions produced by the diseased condition may be removed effectively and the parts so acted upon through pulsations as to induce an improved circulation of the blood in the parts leading to an amelioration or cure of the disease.

In carrying out the invention, 1 provide a novel nozzle-like body adapted to be in troduced into the vagina, said body being provided with an absorbent medium to receive and retain the gonococci, leucorrhoea and like virus drawn thereinto, suction means being employed to accomplish this operation and to operate upon the parts for the additional purpose of improving the blood circulation thereof as aforesaid.

tion with the above means an auxiliary attachment whereby both internal and relatively external parts may be treated or manipulated, so to speak. 1

The above object and subsidiary objects which will be made clear hereafter, are attained by the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 shows an elevation of a. complete embodiment of the medical appliance of this invention;

Figure 2 is a similar view of the appliance modified by the omission of one of the elements;

Figure 11 shows in a longitudinal section a further modification of the tubular body; and

Figure 12 is an end view of the expander.

Similar references indicate same or simi lar parts throughout the drawings.

Referring to Figs. 1, 2, 3, 41: and 5 inclusive of the drawings, 1 indicates a thin rubber sac, which is circular in cross section, fully open at its mouth and provided with many small holes 2 around the opposite end portion and further provided with a relatively large hole 2 at the middle point of the apertured extremity of the sac. 3 indicates an inner suction tube, the ends of which are' fully open but one end 4 is reduced a portion of its length while the other end portion is provided with plurality of holes 5 passing through the wall of the tube 3. The inner tube 3 may be made of either rigid or flexible material such as glass, rubber, celluloid, ebonite and the like As shown in Figs. 3 and 4, the larger end of the inner tube 3 is cut obliquely for the purpose which will be explained hereafter. The inner tube 3 is wrapped in a cushion of either absorbent cotton or gauze 6 as clearlyshown in F ig. 3, and inserted into the thin rubber sac 1 in such a manner that the larger open end of the inner tube 3 reaches the bottom end of the sac 1, at the center of which end a relatively large hole 2' is formed opposite the open end of the tube 3. The bottom end of the sac 1 is preferably formed of a shape corresponding to that of the larger end of the inner tube 3, so that the sac 1 may be expanded in an oblique shape when theinner tube 3 is inserted into the sac 1. 7 indicates a suction cup, which is connected with the fully open end of the rubber sac 1, and on the other hand connected with a suitable suction pump 8, by means of a usual connecting rubber tube 9.

In the form shown in Fig. 1, a T-shaped connector having branches 10, 10, 10", is interposed in the conduit 9 for the purpose of combination of the suction cup 7 in the appliance. A pinch-cock 11 may be applied on either of the connecting tubes 9 or 9 leading to the suction cup 7.

In the modification illustrated in Figs. (5, 7 and 8, the construction of the tubular body is entirely different except for the thin rubber sac 1 which is employed similarly to its'use as shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3. The inner tube 3, which is inserted into the thin rubber sac 1, is modified in its construction. In this form, the inner tube 3 is provided withan expander 12 which is made of a plurality of strips oi any suitable elastic material. The respective ends of the strips 12 are fixed on the two rings 13 and 14;, one at each end oi the strips 12, so that an expander or" cylindrical shape in which the strips 12 are longitudinally arranged is formed. The expander is suitably fixed at one end of the inner tube 3; for instance one end ring 18 of the expander is screwed at the end 01? the tube 3 as shown. The other end ring 1 1 is provided with radial arms 16, the outer ends of which arms are fixed to the end ring 1% of the expander. The inner or central ends of the radial arms 16 are connected at one end 15 of an axial rod 17.

As shown the other end of the inner tube 3 is conically enlarged and an annular shoulder 18 is formed around the foot of the conically enlarged part. From this shculder' 18, the inner tube 3 extends in a uniformly enlarged cylinder 19. A nipple projection 20, through which an air passage 21 is formed is provided at a point near the shoulder 18. The nipple projection 20 is connected with one end 01 the connecting rubber tube 9, the other end or" which may be connected directly to the suction pump 8 as shown in Fig. 2 or connected to a branch of, the T-shaped connector as shown in Fig. 1., in either case, the inner space may be ex hausted by the operation of the suction pump 8. In order to close in air tight one endof the inner tube 3, a stopper 22 is pro vided within the cylinder 19. The axial rod 17 passes through the stopper 22 and is keyed to the stopper 22 in such a manner that the rod 17 is prevented from revolving lut is capable of sliding in a longitudinal direction.

Furthermore a revolvable stopper 23, formed with an annular flange 2-1 is pro- 'eme end oi the enlarged cylvided at the ex" inder 19. An annular groove 25 is ii'orined around the revolvable stopper The free end 0; the axial rod is threaded for some length and passes through the center of trevolvable stopper 1%. cap 26 is secur on the outside of the stopper 28 so that the end of the axial rod may movewith'n cap 26. The rerolvablo stopper is Kept in the place by means of one or more small pins or screws 25 which pass through the wall of the cylindrical part 19 and engage into the annular groove 25.

1n the construction as above described, the stopper 23 may be revolved in either direction. The rod 17 may be moved in either longitudinal direction according to the direction of the revolution of the stopper 23.

If the threaded end of the axial rod 17 is gradually drawn in the direction of the arrow shown, by manipulation of the flange 2 1 of the revolvable stopper 23. the'end'ring 1st of the expander is also gradually drawn in the same direction or inwardly. In the mean time the expander is gradually expanded outwardly and finally will take shape somewhat as shown in Fig. 7. Then the outer casing of the tubular body will be accordingly expanded as shown in Fig. 8. lithe axial rod 17 is moved in opposite direction from the position shown in Fig. 7, the end ring 1 1- oi? the expander will be moved in the same direction, that is outwardly. The expander will be closed or contracted as shown in Fig. 6, and the outer portion of the tubu- Jody will be accordingly reduced in size.

The only difference in the modification shown in Figs. 9 andlO "from the modifica tion as above described, lies in the provision of? an internal disc 27 within the expander. The disc 27 is fixed to the axial rod in such a position that the disc will be placed at about midway of the expander when it is contracted as shown in 9. The disc 27 is preferably made in such a size as to normally lreep each strip 12 of the expander somewhat curved or expanded outwardly even when the expander is contracted.

in this modified construction, the movement of the axial rod 17 is accompanied by corresponding movement of the disc 27, so that when the axial rod 17 is drawnin the direction oi"? the arrow shown. the disc 27 is also moved in the same direction, and all the longitudinal strips 12 oi the expander are "Forced outwardly. Thus the expander will finally take the shape as shown in Fig. 10.

The modification illustrated in Fig. 11 only differs in the following points from those modified forms as above described. The in ner tube 3 is formed of uniform size llllfillgjqllOllt its length except tor the annular shoulder- 18 upon which the open end oi the thin rubber sac 1 is secured. The axial rod 17. which is fitted within the in-- ner tube 3. is provided with a longitudinal passe O 23. in this case. the inner end oi. tlc .ial rod 17 is uiade somewhat shorter than those shown in Figs. (3 and 10 inclusive. and the disc 27 has connected thereto the inner ends of the radialarms 16. The axial rod 17 is formed with a collar 29 which may be moved within the inner tube connector 20 is formed wit-ha passage 21' which communicates with the passage 28.

formed through the axial rod 17'. A longitudinal groove 31 is formed on the e erna-l. surface of the axial rod 17. In order to prevent revol ing of the axial rod 17 the end oi a. small pin 32 which passes through is engaged in the the wall of the tube a longitudinal groove 31. p In this modification, the axial rod 17 may be drawn out or forced by the manipulation of the flange 2 t of the revolvable stopper 23, but it is pr vented from revolving. Tins the expander may be expanded or contracted as desired.

The medical appliance of this invention. is used in the following manners. In general, the tubular body forming the nozzle of this appliance is gradually inserted until the end of the tubular body reaches the cervix uteri in the vagina, after the external. surface of the thin rubber sac 1 has been oiled withv any suitable substance. Then the suction. pump 8 is operated, the pump being connected as shown either in Fig. 1 or in Fig. 2. In the beginning of the operation, the inner tube will be exhausted first and then the cervix uteri will be drawn to the end of the tubular body, and the canalis. cervix will communicate with the opening 1" of the same. At the same time, plicae vaginales also will be drawn to the end portion oi"- the tubular body, where the plurality of small holes 2 are formed in the thin rubber 1. By the further operation of the -tion pump 8, gonococci, leucorrhoea and LIVE, like exiting in the canalis cervix and in the mucosa of the plicae vaginales, will be sucked into the absorbent cushion such as cotton or gauze passing through the open ings 2 and 2 of the thin rubber sac 1.

Pulsating action, which is generally caused with single acting pumps, may be applied on the uterus and the internal p rt oi the vagina. where these parts contact with the outer end portion of the tubular body, ar the said parts of the generative organs may be congested.

dhen an appliance of the form shown in Fig. 1 is used. the suction cup 7 may be ap-- the same time as plied on the clitoris at the tubular body is inserted in the vac the pinch-cock liieingreleased. Other P omitting the T connector. the suction cup '7 may be directly connected with the suction pump as shown in Fig. '5, and it may be applied on the clitoris separately. By such use of the suction cup 7 pulsating action may be applied on the clitoris so that the latter may be congested. T he congestion caused by such pulsating action may stimulate the circulation of blood, which is effective-in curing several diseases of women.

The modifications shown in Figs. 6 to 12 inclusive, are also used in combination with tions shown in Fig. 1 or in Fig. 52, and as tully described referring to these figures of the drawings. v

In any oil the modifications, the outer portion of the tubular body can be expanded as described by the manipulation of the flange of the revolvable stopper 28, after thetubular bodyhas been inserted into the vagina. Thus the inner surface oi. the va gina may be stretched so that the suction may be efiectirely applied on the said surface. I do not desire to be confined to the exact construction of the appliance as herein described and illustrated, as such may be varied within wide limits to meet the requirements of the device which is used for curing diseases of the generative organs of women.
