|Title:||INSERTER FOR INTRAUTERINE DEVICES|
|Abstract:||An instrument for the insertion into the uterus of a flexible contraceptive device formed from a tubular barrel having a first end for insertion into the uterus and an adjustable stop member for engaging the cervical is at a selected distance for the anterior end of the insertion end. The barrel has diametrically opposed axially extending apertures therein located posteriorly of the stop member for receiving the intrauterine device with the first arm thereof extending through the apertures transversely of the barrel and the second arm extending axially within the barrel toward the posterior portion thereof. A crossbar is provided on the barrel adjacent the apertures for folding the first arm into the barrel adjacent the second arm and substantially parallel thereto. A plunger member, telescopically inserted in the posterior portion of the barrel, has a free end adapted to move the folded intrauterine device from its position adjacent the apertures through the first barrel end to deposit the device in the uterus.|
