SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 550,238, dated November 26, 1895.

Application filed May 20, 1895. Serial No. 549,930. (No model.) V

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, HORACE RUssEL AL-- which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to improvements in instruments for treating the male urethra.

The objects of the invention are, first, to prevent injection being carried further up the urethra than the desired point, as is so frequently done by the conventional method of treatment; second, to treat a limited portion of the urethra, said portion being wherever the trouble may be located; third, to dilate the periurethral ducts, and, fourth, to exhaust said ductsby retroinjecti0n,.which is a very important feature of my invention. I accomplish these objects by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- I Figure 1 is a view in side elevation, partially in section,of my instrument having two bulbs, both of which are shown as collapsed. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the instrument inserted in the urethra and both of the bulbs inflated. Fig. 3 is a view of a modification employing only a single bulb. Fig. 4 is a detail in perspective of a three-way cock used on the tubes through which the bulbs are inflated; and Figs. 5, 6, and 7, are diagrams in cross-section of the cock shown in Fig. 4,

showin g the construction and operation of thesaid cock.

Similar letters of reference refer to like parts throughout the several views of the drawings.

A is a tube of metal, vulcanized rubber, or other suitable material of proper dimensions, and B is a bulb, having walls of flexible material, as rubber, secured to the tube, so as to make an air and water tight joint with said tube. The openings I) afford communication between the interior of the tube and the bulb, whereby the bulb (through said tube) may be inflated and collapsed. A stop-cock Z9 enables the tube to be closed and the bulb retained in its inflated condition.

0 is a second bulb of flexible material, secured to the tube A, and D is a tube communicating with the interior of the tube through which the bulb is inflated and exhausted. The tube is provided with a stop-cock d.

The bulbs B and C may be distended or collapsed irrespectively of each other, or they may both be distended or collapsed simultaneously by the proper manipulation of the tubes A and D, respectively. The bulbs B and C will be distended until they bring sufficient pressure against the wall of the urethra to prevent fluids introduced between them from passing beyond them-that is,from passing between the rubber bulbs and the wall of the urethra. Fig. 2 shows the appearance of the instrument as inserted in the urethra and with the bulbs inflated.

Passing through the bulb 0 parallel with and adjacent to the tubes A and D are the tubes E and F, which terminate outside of the bulb O and between the bulbs B and C, so that fluid entering the tube E will escape at e, and entering at opening f will pass out through the tube F. The tubes will be provided with suitable cocks e and f. All of the stop-cocks will be connected with rubber tubes or with tubes and syringes appropriate to the work to be done.

For greater convenience in regulating the degree of inflation of the bulbs and in charging and discharging them I prefer to use the three-way cocks on the tubes leading into said bulbs, which will obviate the necessity of putting the rubber tubes on the nozzles of the bulbs and taking the tubes off while the instrument is in place in the urethra. The cock is well illustrated in Figs. 4., 5, 6, and 7. The handle indicates the direction of flow by pointing over the nozzle, which is open, and over the place not having a nozzle when all of the communications are cut off.

The instrument will be provided with a measuring-scale of any convenient kind to indicate the extent of insertion of the instrument into the urethra.

The method of using the instrument is as follows: The instrument with bothbulbs cdlduced through pipe E will passout opening e, and after circulating in the uirethra 136-; tween the bulbs C and B will find its exitat; openings f and will pass out pipe F, ifdesired, or may be retained by closing stop-cock fof l If desired,bu'lb-0 may be collapsed, leaving bulb B distended, 'wherebythe fluiki pipe F.

passing into theurethra at e Wlll bG allowed torpass between'the urethra -and 'the instrumerit and escape atth'eqneatus of the penis. Y

Thebody o'fthe instrument maybe corrugated longitudinally or maybe round upon 1 cross-section or o'f'any'form convenientto the 1 l ply and-adischargejtubecommunicating-with elimination of fluids.

To remove the instriunentboth bulbsyiiill be collapsed, after which it may be readily;

? for thelpurposes specified.


"In the modification-shown in'Fi'g. 3 pip'e A I passes through-pipe Eibut' does not GOII1I1I 11-, nicate with it, and'term'inateswiththe'flexif ble bulb B, which bulb is inflated and col-1* lapsed through pipe Ain the same manner as described for the instrument shown in Figs. r 1 and 2. Pipe Ehas the inlete provided Then the bulb C is '3 with the stop=eock et and at the end went to thejbulb is provided with the outlets e.

The instrument is introduced into the 'urethra with bulb B collapsed until the required locality is reached. Then bulb B is distended-so as toqnake a water-tight connection'with the Wall of the urethra. Then fluid passed through the'pipe A leaves pipe A at e and finds' itsexit at the meatus of the penis after passing between the Wall of the urethra and the instrument.

Having" thus! fully described-my inyention, What I- G1HimBJSlIGW, and Wish to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is-- In an instrument for treating the male -urethr a, a tube carryin -=a {pair of "flexible bulbs held "suitable distance apart and adapted tobe inserted into theurethra, nieans substantially as specified, for nitiating" said b'ulbs *so as to conneet the walls'of the urethra and 'forrn a closure thatayill ipreven'tthegpas sa e-of liquid beti'veen *the bulbs and said Walls, means 'for introducing fiuitl into ithe space between the biilbs, -"consisting o'frasupsaid "space and said 'tiibesfhaying-stopbocks externally:placed substantial1y as shown and in ipresence of twowitnesses.
