ADHESIVE TAPE FOR SURGICAL DRESSINGS Filed Sept. 8. 1953 i INVENTOR. 1 6504 65 W.- JAcoaxJe.
BY w PICA/E), WATT5/ED6E27DN&M5NENNY A 7'TOPNE Y5 ADHESIVE TAPE FOR SURGICAL DRESSINGS George W. Jacoby, Jr., Wooster, Ohio Application September 8, 1953, Serial No. 378,983
1 Claim. (Cl. 128334) This invention relates broadly to adhesive tape for surgical dressings and more specifically to an organization of fabricated strips of such material which are fashioned to facilitate the closure of a flesh wound or incision without buckling the skin subjacent the bandadge.
Further objects of the invention reside in the provision of a tape assembly for use in correcting umbilical hernias in children, for strapping or binding fractures, and for tractive applications where tensive control is essential.
Other objects and advantages more or less ancillary to the foregoing, and the manner in which all the various objects are realized, will appear in the following description, which considered in connection with the accompanying drawings, sets forth the preferred embodiment of the invention.
Referring to the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a plan view of the improved tape assembly.
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view therethrough, the section being taken on a plane indicated by the line 22 in Fig. 1.
Fig. 3 is a view in perspective illustrating the initial application of the strips and the position thereof as the edges of a out are being drawn together, and
Fig. 4 is a lineal sectional view through the tape assembly and a pad compressively held thereby.
Referring first to Fig. 2, the tape assembly comprises a strap 10 having a slot 11 in the central portion thereof which is approximately one-third the width of the strip and twice the length of its end portions 12. The second member of the assembly comprises a strip 13 of the same length as the strip 10 and formed with similar end portions 14. The central section 15 of the second strip is reduced in width to slide freely through the slot 11, the length of the reduced section being equal to the length of the slot. One face of each strip is coated with an adhesive of the character customarily used on surgical tape, the gummed face thereof being covered, for purpose of handling, with a sheet or sheets of sized coarse gauze slightly larger than strips 10 and 13.
When the improved tape assembly is used the protective gauze is first removed from the strips 10 and 13;
nited States Patent ice then the strip 13 is laced through the slot 11 and revolved to position the gummed face of each strip downwardly. The end portions or tabs 12 and 14 are next held in spaced parallel relation then pressed down upon the flesh in straddled relation with the incision I. Tensive effort is next applied to the free ends 12a and 14a of the strips until the edges of the incision are drawn into intimate engagement with each other, whereupon the free ends of the strips are lowered simultaneously and pressed into adfixed relation upon the upper face of the tabs 12, 1.4 and/or adjacent areas of the flesh. As the latter operation is performed the narrow bands 16 of the strip 10 and the center section 15 of the strip 13 will descend scissor fashion over the incision, or gauze dressing thereover, and adhere thereto, the narrow band sections facilitating conformation therewith and the movement thereof serving to restrain buckling or wrinkling of the flesh intermediate the tabs 12 and 14.
When the improved tape assembly is used in the treatment of an umbilical hernia or like malformation, the procedure outlined above is similar, save that, the central section 15 is lowered in advance of the bands 16 and tensioned more severely in order to impose a compressive strain upon the center of the pad. In order to depress a hernia slightly below the surface level, a cotton ball is placed beneath section 15 as shown in Fig. 4.
Although the foregoing description is necessarily of a detailed character, in order that the invention may be completely set forth, it is to be understood that the specific terminology is not intended to be restrictive or confining, and that various rearrangements of parts and modifications of detail may be resorted to without departing from the scope or spirit of the invention as herein claimed.
What is claimed is:
An adhesive tape assembly for surgical dressings comprising a strip of adhesive tape having an adhesive coating on the entire surface of one face thereof, a narrow central section therein and end portions of a greater width, a second strip of adhesive tape having an adhesive coating on the entire surface of one face thereof having a slot in the medial axis thereof, said slot being of a width equal to the width of said narrow portion of the first strip and'of a length greater than the width of the end portions of the first strip, the first strip being in engagement with the slot in the second strip when the first strip is inserted into said slot and then revolved to position both strips into parallel relation.
