SUPRAPUBIC SIPHON.

Application filed April 6,

This invention relates to an improvement in supra-pubic siphons.

The object of the-invention is to provide for the removal of the bladder contents whenever the prostate gland has become infected and closes the mouth of the bladder, interferring with urination and the proper operas tion and functioning ofthe bladder. hen an operation cannot be performed to remove the infected prostate gland, an operation on the body for cystostomy is performed, and a catheter is used or worn permanently as a drainage tube.

The invention resides morespecifically in the means for supporting the catheter, which is by means of a rubber cushion supported by a rubber pad to which it may be vulcanized or otherwise secured. The cushion is provided with a central opening registering with a small orifice in. the pad andthe catheter ex tends through a small opening in a depending lip formed on the pad and through the above openings and the c-ystostomy wound into the bladder. The pad and cushion are suitably supported by elastic straps encircling the waist of the wearer.

This arrangement of rubber cushion and apertures provides a simple means for the adjustment and fixation of the catheter or drainage tube and permits of reasonable traction upon that portion of the tube outside of the bladder without changing the position or length of the portion of the catheter. in the bladder, and also provides a means for controlling and maintaining that portion of the tube placed into the bladder in proper position.

In the accompanying drawings:

Fig. 1, is a vertical sectional view of a portion of a body showing the invention. as applied;

Fig. 2, is a perspective view of the same;

Fig. 3, is a front elevation of the pad;

Fig. 4, is a rear elevation of the same; and

Fig. 5, is a sectional view therethrough.

In the accompanying drawings, the numeral 1 indicates the rubber cushion which is vulcanized or otherwise secured to the rubber pad 2, which is provided with four tongues 3, arranged in pairs on opposite sides thereof. Elastic straps 4 are secured to the tongues 3 by means of buckles 5, and extend around the waist and hips, as clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 2. Rubber slides 6 are arranged at intervals on the straps 4 and have 1927. Serial N0. 181,467.

the inner surfaces thereof roughened to aid in holding the straps in proper position.

The pad 2 is provided with an orifice 7, registering with a central opening 8 formed in the rubber cushion, the orifice 7 being of smaller diameter than the opening 8. A tab 9 depends from the lower side of the pad 2, and has an orifice 10 therethrough; This tab 9 is integral with the pad, and extends outwardly therefrom, asshown in Fig; -1, when in use in order to receive the catheter or drijiina e tube 11, which extends through the orifices 10 and 7, and the centralopening 8, v where it enters the bladder designated by the nun'ieral 12, through thecystostomywound13. A small opening 14 is formed in the end of the catheter normally positioned within the bladder. The opposite end of the catheter is suitably connected with a urinal 15 supported and carried upon straps 16.

Figs. 1 and 2 clearly show the application of the invention to the body in which the rubber cushion 1 is properly positioned and se cured by the adjustable straps 4 with the catheter extending through the orifices 10 and 7, the opening 8, and the cystostomy wound 13 into the bladder 12, from where the contents of the bladder may be removed or drained through the opening 14 into and through the tube 11, to the urinal 15. The small diaphragm which is; formed by making the orifice 7 smaller than the opening 8, as Well as the relation of these to the orifice 10 in the tab 9, afford a means for retaining and fixing the catheter in the bladder at any desirable length, while permitting reasonable traction of the exterior portion of the tube, without changing the interior portion and for properly controlling and maintaining these in their proper positions.

The invention may be constructed of rubber. leather, metal, or other suitable material as desirable.

I claim:

1. An article of the character described in cluding a cushion having an enlarged opening therein, a pad secured over said cushion and having a registering orifice of smaller diameter than the opening, and a catheter extending through the orifice and opening.

2. An article of the character described including a cushion having an enlarged opening therein, a pad secured over said cushion and having a registering orifice therein, said the leg of the wearer by pad having an outwardly-extending tab provided with an orifice, and a catheter extending through said orifices and the central openmg.

3. An article of the character described including a cushion having an enlarged opening therein, a pad secured over said cushion and having a registering orifice of smaller diameter than the opening, said pad having a depending tab provided with an, orifice, and a catheter extending tln'ough said orifices and the central openin 4:. An article of the character described including a cushion having an opening therein, a pad secured over said cushion and having a registering orifice, a catheter mounted in said opening and orifice, said pad having laterally extending tongues thereon, and elastic straps connected with the tongues for holding the article in proper position.

5. An article of the character described in eluding a cushion having an opening therein, a pad secured over said. cushion and having a registering orifice, a catheter mounted in said opening and orifice, said pad having laterally extending tongues thereon, elastic straps connected wit-h the tongues for holding the article in proper position, buckles for adjustably connecting the straps to the tongues, and slides having roughened inner surfaces mounted on the straps for holding the latter in proper position.

'6. An article of the character described ineluding a cushion having an enlarged opening therein, a pad secured over said cushion and having a registering orifice of smaller diameter than the opening, said pad having a depending tab provided with an orifice, a catheter extending through said orifices and the central opening, said pad having tongues extending outwardly on opposite sides thereof, and elastic straps adjustahly connected with the tongues for holding the article in proper position.

7. An article of the character described including a cushion having an opening therein, a pad secured over said cushion and having a registering orifice therein, said pad having an outwardly extending tab provided with an orifice, and a catheter extending through said orifices and the opening in the cushion.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
