  • Patent number: 5019092
    Abstract: A vascular clamp particularly suitable for use in liver transplant surgery. The free ends of pivoted handles arch toward each other and connect to the middle of elongate curved jaws which lie in substantially parallel planes when the handles are in the normal clamping position. The curvature of the jaws, projected into the parallel planes, decreases toward the ends farthest from the handles, and coincides at the other end with an arc, the extension of which smoothly merges near the pivoted connection with the handles. A bridge member joining the jaws to the handles prevent sutures from entangling on the clamp and reduces bending of the jaws at the juncture with free ends of the handles.

  • Patent number: 4993862
    Abstract: A clamp assembly suitable for simultaneously adjusting the positions of support rods on an operating table extension in a split wishbone surgical retractor apparatus. Two independently rotatable disks are coaxially stacked on a base and tightened together by a bolt and T-shaped fitting extending through central openings of the base and disks. Channels formed between the disks and the base loosely receive the rods, and aligned bores in the base and the fitting loosely receive the extension. As the bolt and fitting are tightened, the rods and extension are clamped in fixed relative positions. The disks are interlocked at discrete angular positions by a pin and holes for adjusting the spread between the rods.
