Title: CERVICAL FITTING
Abstract:
A one-piece cervical fitting (10) has a passage (12) formed therethrough which receives an elongated medical device such as an endoscope. The passage forms a fluid-tight seal with the outer surface of the medical device. The outer surface of the fitting defines a pilot portion (14) which is of reduced outer dimension to facilitate entry of the fitting into the cervical canal of a human uterus. The pilot portion joins a tapered outer surface portion (16) which enables the fitting to form a fluid-tight seal with uteri of different sizes. The tapered portion joins with an outer surface portion (22) of constant outer dimension which in turn joins with an enlarged end portion (24).
