May 15, 2002
Appl. No.:
10/146525
Inventors:
Dean J. Secrest - Concord OH
Marlin E. Younker - West Palm Beach FL
William Greuloch - Westlake OH
Assignee:
US Endoscopy Group, Inc. - Mentor OH
International Classification:
A61M 5178
US Classification:
60416401, 604265, 60416406, 60416409, 60416501
Abstract:
A surgical device for injecting a chemical agent within a subject for use in endoscopic injection therapies is disclosed. The device includes a support body, a motion transmitting unit, an agent delivery system and a guide housing. The motion transmitting unit is movable relative to the support body. The agent delivery system includes a needle for extending into a subject and structure defining a conduit between the support body and the needle. The guide housing has a flexible elongated body, an internal elongated passage and friction reducing material lining the passage. At least a portion of the motion transmitting unit adjacent the needle is slideably housed within the guide housing. The device offers a surgeon improved ease of needle extension and retraction when the distal end of the endoscope is bent at acute angles.

Endoscope Gripping Device

US Patent:
20090247827, Oct 1, 2009
Filed:
Mar 27, 2009
Appl. No.:
12/412850
Inventors:
Dean J. Secrest - Concord OH,
Christopher J. Kaye - Concord OH,
Aaron Boyce - Eastlake OH,
John P. Winstanley - Madison OH,
Assignee:
U.S. ENDOSCOPY GROUP, INC. - Mentor OH
International Classification:
A61B 1/00
US Classification:
600131
Abstract:
A device and method for facilitating the insertion, manipulation and removal of an endoscopic medical device within a body cavity is disclosed. The device may comprise a body portion and a lining. The body portion may be configured to wrap around the outer surface of the insertion tube. The body portion may comprise an outer surface, an inner surface, two ends, and a longitudinal slit extending from one end of the body portion to the other end. The lining may be attached to the interior surface of the body portion. The lining may comprise an at least partially raised surface that contacts the outer surface of the insertion tube at least when a user squeezes the body portion of the device.

Package For Initial Placement Of Low Profile Gastrostomy Device And Method Of Placement

View page
US Patent:
50840142, Jan 28, 1992
Filed:
Dec 13, 1990
Appl. No.:
7/626969
Inventors:
George J. Picha - Independence OH
Dean J. Secrest - Euclid OH
Assignee:
Applied Medical Technology, Inc. - Independence OH
International Classification:
H61M 500
US Classification:
604 54
Abstract:
A low profile or skin level gastrostomy device for initial endoscopic placement in an incision provided through the stomach and abdominal walls of a patient has a collapsed resilient end portion packaged and compressed within a shroud that allows the end portion of the device positioned within the stomach to easily pass from the inner to the outer end of the incision. The shroud is pulled or pushed outwardly through the incision until the device is properly positioned therein. Subsequent to device placement, the shroud is removed and discarded, allowing the now external end portion of the device to expand to its normal position so as to engage the outer surface of the abdominal wall to maintain the device in position. Such a gastrostomy device package and method of placement avoid the need for establishing a fistulas stoma tract before placement of a low profile gastrostomy device, as is the usual case.

Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy Device

View page
US Patent:
50079000, Apr 16, 1991
Filed:
Oct 31, 1989
Appl. No.:
7/429769
Inventors:
George J. Picha - Independence OH
Dean J. Secrest - Euclid OH
Assignee:
Applied Medical Technology, Inc. - Independence OH
International Classification:
A61M 532
US Classification:
604106
Abstract:
A gastrostomy device that may be placed either endoscopically or percutaneously is disclosed. The catheter is a resilient tube with a resilient T-bar at one end. One wing of the T is provided with a pocket for the tip of an obturator rod. By inserting the rod in the pocket and orienting the rod along the tube, the bar is forced to a position in-line with the tube. The catheter may then be easily inserted into an established stoma. When the rod is removed, the bar returns to its orthogonal position, thereby retaining the catheter within the stomach. The device may be provided with a cup-shaped bolster whose mouth engages the skin about, but not adjacent to, the stoma to hold the bar snugly against the stomach wall. By providing the bolster with air vents, healing of the stoma is encouraged. By providing the device with two diametrically opposed pockets in the T-bar, a forked obturator may be used to fold both wings into a forward oriented, small axial cross section configuration for insertion into a stoma.

Biopsy Forceps With Calde Controlled Jaws

View page
US Patent:
50820001, Jan 21, 1992
Filed:
Nov 29, 1990
Appl. No.:
7/619733
Inventors:
George J. Picha - Independence OH
Dean J. Secrest - Euclid OH
Assignee:
Applied Medical Technology, Inc. - Independence OH
International Classification:
A61B 1000
US Classification:
128751
Abstract:
A pair of biopsy forceps for capturing, by remote operation, a sample of tissue from an internal location in a patient. The device includes a flexible sheath with a control wire extending therethrough, a pair of jaws movable by the control wire to capture a sample of tissue, and a manual operating means connected at the outer end of the sheath for extending and retracting the control wire. The jaws are mounted at the ends of tongs pivotally mounted in an end housing for movement between open and closed positions. The control wire is connected to lever arms at the rearward end of the tongs by means of two cable lengths connected between the wire and the rearward ends of the lever arms in such a way as to form an effective extension of the respective lever arm.

Tract Measuring Device

View page
US Patent:
53438744, Sep 6, 1994
Filed:
May 18, 1993
Appl. No.:
8/063118
Inventors:
George J. Picha - Independence OH
Dean J. Secrest - Concord OH
Angela P. Nguyen - Sagamore Hills OH
Assignee:
Applied Medical Technology, Inc. - Independence OH
International Classification:
A61B 5103
US Classification:
128780
Abstract:
A measuring device and method for determining the length of an incised tract or passage into which gastrostomy appliance is about to be installed. A trocar needle is used to incise a tract or passage extending from the outside surface of a patient's skin into the stomach through the abdominal and stomach walls. The measuring device is positioned in the patient's stomach via a previously endoscopically installed guidewire extending through the patient's mouth, down the esophagus and through the incision. The device is pushed along the guidewire outwardly through the incision until a distal end of the device containing scale indicia is visible. A stop on the device engages the inner wall of the patient's stomach to limit outward movement of the device through the incision, so as to establish an inner stomach wall reference point for the scale indicia. With the device fully inserted into the incision, the distance between the inner wall of t, he patient's stomach and the outer surface of the skin is measured by observation of the scale indicia. The measuring device is removed from the tract or passage, and then a gastrostomy appliance of proper length dimension determined by the foregoing measurement is installed.
