WW EM United States Patent "ice 2,778,362 SURGICAL GARMENT Edith N. S. Pollock and Marie Louise Baker, New Orleans, La.

Application March 21, 1955, Serial No. 495,614 8 Claims. (Cl. 128-283) This invention relates to surgical garments and more particularly to a device adapted to support and secure colostomy bags in position on the abdomen of a patient.

The primary object of the present invention resides in the provision of a surgical garment which permits the removal and replacement of disposable colostomy bags in a convenient manner so as to take care of the feces or bowel movements in a most sanitary manner with a minimum of trouble and attention without the removal of garment.

A further object of the invention resides in the provision of a surgical garment which will provide maximum comfort to the wearer, will support and hold the tissues and internal organs of that part of the body in a natural position, while being so arranged as to hold the disposable colostomy bag in a position downward and toward the center of the patients body thereby effectively concealing the fact that the patient actually is wearing this type of garment.

The construction of this invention features the use of a novel resilient ring which is associated with a circular opening in the surgical garment of less size than the ring. The disposable bag is wrapped about the ring and extends through the opening in the garment, the ring adapted to surround the end of the colon.

Further objects and features of this invention reside in the provision of a surgical garment that is adapted to be produced in various sizes and adapted to be worn by patients of either sex, which can be made in the form of a belt if desired or in the form of a girdle with or without garter supporters and which is relatively inexpensive to produce.

These, together with the various ancillary objects and features of the invention which will become apparent as the following description proceeds, are attained by this surgical garment, a preferred embodiment of'which has been illustrated in the accompanying drawings, by way of example only, wherein:

Figure 1 is a front elevational view illustrating the surgical garment comprising the present invention as worn by a female patient and in the form of a girdle;

Figure 2 is another elevational view illustrating the surgical garment with the flap in a detached position;

Figure 3 is a horizontal sectional detail view as taken along the plane of line 33 of Figure l and showing the construction :of the surgical garment in an enlarged scale;

Figure 4 is a rear elevational view of the garment;

Figure 5 is an elevational view illustrating the con struction of this garment as adapted for use by a male patient;

Figure 6 is an enlarged perspective view of the novel ring and the disposable bag wrapped thereabout;

Figure 7 is a perspective view illustrating the bag and the ring;

Figure 8 is a partial elevational view illustrating the construction of the opening tab provided for opening the disposable bag so as to permit easy disposal of the bag and contents;

Figure 9 is an enlarged sectional detail view as taken 2,778,362 Patented Jan. 22, 1957 obese or other people unable to wear the surgical garment;

Figure 11 is an enlarged sectional detail view as taken along the plane of line 11-11 of Figure 10;

Figure 12 is a partial perspective view with portions thereof being shown in section of the disposable bag and being shown in an enlarged scale;

Figure 13 is an enlarged sectional detail view of the colostomy belt and associated bag and illustrating a modified form of ring; and

Figure 14 is a perspective view of the modified form of ring.

With continuing reference to the accompanying drawings wherein like reference numerals designate similar parts throughout the various views, and with attention initially directed to the embodiment of the invention as shown in Figures 1 through 4, reference numeral 10 generally designates a surgical garment which may be in the form of a girdle and which may have portions in the front as at 12 formed of any suitable fabric and likewise as at 14 suitable fabric may be used in the rear portions of the garment 10. Further, at the sides or other portions as may be desired, the garment may be provided with elastic portions 16 and 18. A slide fastener closure 20 is provided to permit the garment to be easily removed or replaced on the body of the user and to facilitate removal and replacement of disposable plastic bag 38.

Cut from the surgical garment 10 at the point where the stub of the colon extends out of the patients body, is an aperture 22 which may be suitably reinforced by suitable material and stitching as at 24.

Secured as by stitches 26 to the front material portion 12 and to the elastic portion 18 of the garment 10 is a flap 28 which extends angularly upwardly and to one side and is adapted to be secured by suitable fasteners including interlocking parts 30 and 32, which are secured. respectively to the flap 28 and to the garment 10.

The concept of this invention also includes the utilization of a ring 34 formed of rubber or other suitable flexible and resilient material. This ring is adapted to have the colon extend therethrough and also to have the open end 36 of a bag 38 formed of any suitable material such as lightweight waterproof plastic, preferably transparent or translucent. The end 36 of the bag 38 is wrapped about the ring 34 in the manner shown at 40 in Figure 6. The lower end of the bag 38 is provided with an opening tab 44 which is adapted to be ripped from the end of the bag thus creating a tear or slot as at 42 when it is desired to dispose of the contents and the bag. This additional opening or slot 42 simplifies the disposal by releasing trapped air and water thus allowing bag and feces contents to be quickly flushed away.

The bag 38 is adapted to permit the feces and other matter to be expelled thereinto and is tucked under the flap 28 and thus drawn downwardly and toward the center of the patients body. Inasmuch as the portion im mediately below the abdomen of a person usually extends inwardly, the bag 38, its contents and the bulges caused thereby will be completely concealed by the flap 28 thereby assuring the patient against unsightly bulges to one side or another of his body.

In Figure 5 there is shown a modification of the invention which includes a surgical garment 70 adapted to be worn by a male patient and which may be provided with a slide fastener 72 for access. It is to be noted that. the front fabric panel 74 may be configurated to ade-- quately support the organs of the patient and suitable elastic side panels 76 and 78 can be readily utilized. A flap S0 is provided for supporting and concealing the bag indicated at 82 of the same type as the bag 38 and held in place also by a washer as at 84.

Referring now'to the embodiment of the invention as;

is shown in Figures 10 and 11, it will be noted that hereiii tlfer isdisclo's'eda siir'gic'albelt' 90 including a band 92 of suitable elastic material having an aperture 94 therethrough through which the colostomy bag 9.6 is adapted 'tdextehd." The'colos'torny bag 96 maybe pro- Yldtid with stitching 9 8 at the lower end thereof or may be sealed"a's'issh'o'wn in the modification in Figure 12 by means of bonding the lower ends of the bag as at 100. Further, the lower end of the bag 96 may be provided with 'an opening tab 102 which is adapted to be ripped from the end of the bag thuscreating a tear or slot as at'104 when it is desired to dispose of the contents and thebag. i i

The ppen end of the bag 96 is of course wrapped about the 'disk 106 to thereby hold the open end of the bag in position wherein the stud of the colon can extend through pn ndfllltl of the bag 96 and also through the opening in the neg 106.

The belt 9 maybe suitably reinforced as at 110 and "lilte'wi'se'immediatel y around the opening 94 the belt may be reinforced as at 112 A modified rem of washer for use in the invention is aman Figure 1.4 andthis washer generally designate'd by reference numeral 120 may be utilized with either the garment 10, the garment '70, or the belt 90. This washer 129 cooperates in a new manner with the surgical garments inasmuch as the ring 120 is providedwith an aperture 122 therethrough and is provided with a substantially L-shaped flange 124 which may be integrally formed therewith thus forming a recess 126 extending about the periphery of the ring 120. The ring 120'is of course manufactured from a suitable resilient material such as rubber. The open end 108 of the colostomy bag such as the bag 96 is thus wrapped about the ring 120 and the end is positioned as at 130 between the ring 120 and the reinforced portion, such as the portion 112, of 'thebelt 90, see Figure 13, so as to retain the bag in a secure manner. The end of the bag is, of course, retained within the recess 126 as is the vertical edge of the reinforced portion 112 of the garment 90 or other. garment, such as the garments and 70.

The foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly all suitable modifications and equivalents mayberesorted to, falling within the scope of the appended claims.
