Biographical / Historical
A veterinary instrument having a trocar with a curved end and a cannula with its end curved to lie within the trocar during insertion, the cannula being rotatable with respect to the trocar to open out the curved ends after insertion and thereby lock the instrument in position. The parts are held in the closed and open conditions by a pin and slot connection and a biassing spring. A disc can be adjusted to bear against the animal's skin and thus secure the instrument more firmly.
