Abstract

A surgical implantation device to be placed within a patient's body and seal a hernial rupture includes either a single planar member attached to a locating segment or a first planar member and second planar member, large enough to cover the opening in the abdominal fascia, that are placed on opposite sides of the fascia. In the case of a single planar member, the locating member is placed in the fascia opening and the planar member is placed interiorly of the transversalis fascia. In the case of two planar members, the first and second planar members are connected by a locating member that passes through the fascia opening. The surgical implantation device can be folded upon itself and compressed to fit with a surgical tube and inserted into the patient to the hernial site. Once the surgical tube is at the site, the surgical implantation device is forced from the tube and automatically expands so the planar members assume their flat shape and the locating member assumes its elongated shape.

Independent Claims | See all claims (13)

  1. 1. A surgical implantation device adapted to be placed within a patient using a surgical tube inserted through the patient's skin, for sealing a wall opening in one of the patient's body cavities, the surgical implant comprising:a first planar patch member, for bridging the wall opening, that can be compressed into an implanting condition such that it fits within a surgical tube and that can be expanded into a deployed condition upon release from the surgical tube such that it assumes a planar shape;a second planar patch member, for bridging the wall opening, that can be compressed into an implanting condition such that it fits within a surgical tube and that can be expanded into a deployed condition upon release from the surgical tube such that it assumes a planar shape;a second planar patch member, for bridging the wall opening, that can be compressed into an implanting condition such that it fits within the surgical tube and that can be expanded into a deployed condition upon release from the surgical tube such that it assumes a planar shape; anda locating member having a predetermined length;wherein one end of the locating member and one surface of the first patch member include hook and loop fasteners, for removably attaching the two members together, and the opposite end of the locating member and one surface of the second patch member include hook and loop fasteners, for removably attaching the two members together;wherein the first planar member, locating member, and second planar member are apart in the implanting condition;and wherein in the deployed condition, the first patch member is positioned on one side of the wall opening in the patient's body cavity, the second patch member is positioned on the other side of the wall opening, and the locating member extends through the wall opening to interconnect the first and second patch members.
  2. 8. A surgical implantation device that can be placed within a patient using a surgical tube inserted through the patient's skin and that, once placed, can be used to seal an enlarged generally circular opening in the wall of one of the patient's body cavities, the surgical implant comprising:a first flat, circular patch that is constructed of a biocompatible fabric and that includes a plurality of resilient members sufficiently stiff to urge the first patch into a planar orientation and resist any other orientations, but sufficiently flexible to allow the first patch to be folded into a surgical tube;a second flat, circular patch that is constructed of a biocompatible fabric and that includes a plurality of resilient members sufficiently stiff to urge the second patch into a planar orientation and resist any other orientations but sufficiently flexible to allow the second patch to be folded into the surgical tube; andan elongated locating member that is constructed of a biocompatible material and that includes at a first end hook and loop fastener means, for attaching the member to the first patch, and further includes at a second end hook and loop fastener means, for attaching the member to the second patch, the locating member having a generally cylindrical shape with a diameter substantially the same as the diameter of the circular opening in the wall of the patient's body cavity.
  3. 13.13. A method of implanting a surgical implantation device, having a generally planar first portion and second portion that are interconnected by a connecting segment, into a patient using a surgical tube to seal an enlarged, generally circular opening in the wall of one of the patient's body cavities, the method comprising the steps of:providing a surgical implementation device having a generally planar first portion and second portion that are interconnected by a connecting segment;inserting and locating one end of a surgical tube through a wall opening, in a wall of a body cavity, and adjacent a first side of the wall;forcing the first portion of the surgical implantation device out of the surgical tube adjacent the first side of the wall and allowing the first portion to automatically assume a planar shape;forcing the connecting segment of the surgical implantation device out of the surgical tube within the wall opening;forcing the second planar portion of the surgical implantation device out of the surgical tube adjacent a second side of the wall and allowing the second portion to automatically assume a planar shape;passing a suture through the first portion, the connecting segment, and the second portion of the surgical implantation device and tying off the suture, to attach together the first portion, connecting segment, and second portion; andwithdrawing the surgical tube from the patient.
