ILEOSTOMY APPLIANCE Filed June 29, 1964 INVENTOR. SAUL L.KANTER BY A m.UW

ATTORNEY United States Patent 3,366,114 ILEOSTOMY APPLIANCE Saul L. Kanter, 364 N. Rengstorlf, Mountain View, Calif. 94040 Filed June 29, 1964, Ser. No. 378,691 3 Claims. (Cl. 128-283) ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE An ileostomy appliance comprises a detachable, cloth gasket disposed against the planar front face of an annular mounting for engagement with the body of the user. After the gasket is caused to adhere to the front face of the mounting, a mixture of zinc ointment and corn starch is applied to the exposed surface of the gasket. Thereupon, powdered karaya gum is applied to the zinc ointment-corn starch mixture. Now, the ileostomy appliance is prepared to have the gasket thereof aligned 'with the stoma of the body of the user for engagement with the surrounding wall of the stoma.

The present invention relates in general to medical appliances, and more particularly to ileostomy and colostomy appliances.

Heretofore, an adhesive, such as rubber cement, was applied to the body of the user and to the body ring of an ileostomy or colostomy appliance for adherence to the body of the user. This procedure was often painful and irritating and sometimes caused infections. Further, certain individuals were allergic to the rubber cement.

An object of the present invention is to provide an improved ileostomy appliance, colostomy appliance and the like.

Another object of the present invention is to provide an ileostomy appliance, colostomy appliance and the like that reduces the seepage of waste material onto the skin of the user.

Another object of the present invention is to provide an ileostomy appliance, colostomy appliance and the like that is more comfortable to the user and tends to protect the users skin.

Another object of the present invention is to provide an ileostomy appliance, colostomy appliance and the like that could be employed with facility and ease of operation.

Other and further objects and advantages of the present invention will be apparent to one skilled in the art from the following description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the ileostomy appliance of the present invention attached to the body of a user.

FIG. 2 is a fragmentary perspective view of the ileostomy appliance of the present invention as viewed substantially 'in a. direction taken from the line 22 of FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a fragmentary front elevational view of the ileostomy appliance taken from the same direction as FIG. 2.

Illustrated in FIGS. 1-3 is the ileostomy appliance of the present invention. While the appliance 10 may be described herein as an ileostomy appliance, it is to be understood that the principles disclosed herein are equally applicable to the colostomy appliance and the like.

The ileostomy appliance 10 comprises a conventional and well-known ileostomy bag or pouch 11. Projecting outwardly from the ileostomy bag 11 is a well-known ring or mounting 12, which forms an inlet opening and passageway 13, whereby Waste material from the body of the user flows therethrough into the ileostomy bag 11. The ring or mounting 12, as is the bag 11, is made of suitable material, such as rubber or plastic.

3,366,1 l4 Patented Jan. 30, 1968 As shown in FIG. 2, the forward face of the mounting 12 is disposed in substantially a vertical plane and the axis thereof is substantially horizontal. The rearward face of the mounting 12 appears as an annular flange spaced axially from the forward wall of the ileostomy bag 11.

According to the present invention, a detachable gasket 20 made of a cloth material, such as felt, is disposed against the planar front face of the annular mounting 12 and aligned axially with the axis of the ring 12. The opening 21 is in register with the opening 13 of the mounting 12. In detachably securing the gasket 20 to the mounting 12 any suitable adhesive may be employed, such as commonly employed cements for detachably securing a felt object to a rubber or plastic object. Hence, the opening 21 formed in the gasket 20 is in registry with the opening 13 of the ring 12. The exposed annular wall of the gasket 20 engages the body of the user and the opening 21 thereof is of a suitable size to encircle the stoma of the user. Thus, waste material from the user passes through the opening 21 of the gasket 20, through the opening and passageway 13 of the mounting 12 into the ileostomy bag 11. The felt gasket 20 is a disposable and easily replaceable member.

After the gasket 20 is caused to adhere to the front face of the mounting 12, a mixture of zinc ointment and corn starch is applied to the exposed surface of the gasket 20 that engages the body of the user. Thereupon, powdered karaya gum or a similar substance of hydrophilic property is applied to the zinc ointment-corn starch mixture. A suitable petrolatum base ointment may be employed in lieu of the zinc ointment. In addition, the zinc ointment-corn starch mixture is applied to the skin of the user around the stoma. Now, the ileostomy appliance 10 is prepared to have the gasket 20 thereof aligned with the stoma of the body of the user for engagement with the surrounding wall of the stoma.

It has been found that the karaya gum with the zinc ointment and corn starch mixture will absorb seepage of fluid to protect the skin. The corn starch tends to urge the seepage of this fluid secreted from the stoma area to mix with the karaya gum. The gasket tends to facilitate the relocation of the appliance relative to the stoma of the user by improving maneuverability of the appliance relative to the body.

While zinc ointment, corn starch and karaya gum have been found to be the preferred ingredients applied to the exposed surface of the gasket 20 for application to the body of the user, it is to be understood that equivalent substances or ingredients may be substituted for one or more of the above delineated ingredients. The quantity of the respective ingredients in the mixtures have not been found to be critical as long as a paste type substance is created for application to the exposed surface of the gasket 20 and the body.

For supporting the ileostomy appliance 10, a relatively wide elastic belt 25 is provided. In the preferred embodiment, the width of the belt 25 is in the vicinity of four inches. The belt 25 is disposed between the rearward face of the mounting 12 and the forward wall of the ileostomy bag 11. A suitable opening 26 is formed in the belt 25 to receive the annular flange of the ring mounting 12. The belt 25 is detachably secured to the body of the user by suitable means, such as hooks and eyelets 27. In adjusting the length of the belt 25 to accommodate the size of the waist of the user, the rows of eyelets are aligned vertically, but are spaced circumferentially. It has been found that a wide, elastic belt creates sufficient tension to keep a tight application between the gasket 20 and the body of the user so as to obviate the need of the application of an adhesive to the skin of the user.

In using the ileostomy appliance 10, the opening 26 in the elastic belt 25 receives the annular flange of the mounting ring 12. The belt 25 is then disposed between the rearward face, of the mounting 12 and the forward wall of the ileostomy bag 11. Thus, the belt 25 is now detachably secured to the ileostomy appliance 10.

Now, the disposable gasket 20 is caused to adhere to the front face of the ring mounting 12 with the axial opening 21 thereof in register with the axial opening 13 of the ring mounting 12 and in communication with the ileostomy bag 11. 7

A mixture of zinc ointment and corn starch is thereupon applied to the exposed surface of the gasket 20 that engages the skin of the user. At this time, powdered karaya gum is applied to the Zinc ointment-corn starch mixture. Zinc ointment and corn starch is also applied to the body of the user around the stoma. Now, the belt 25 is wrapped around the waist of the user with the opening 21 of the disposable felt gasket 20 in registry with the stoma of the user and with the disposable felt gasket 20 engaging the skin or wall of the body of the user surrounding the stoma.

Waste material from the body of the user flows from the stoma through the opening 21 of the gasket 20, through the opening and passageway 13 of the ring mounting 12 and into the ileostomy bag 11.

It is to be understood that modifications and variations of the invention disclosed herein may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:
