Class Information
Number: 623/23.65
Name: Prosthesis (i.e., artificial body members), parts thereof, or aids and accessories therefor > Implantable prosthesis > Hollow or tubular part or organ (e.g., bladder, urethra, bronchi, bile duct, etc.) > Bladder, kidney, lung, or stomach
Description: Subject matter wherein the artificial substitute or part is adapted to replace or assist either: (a) a saclike structure adapted to contain a gas or receive a body fluid, i.e., an artificial bladder); or (b) a body member adapted to eliminate water and waste products, i.e., an artificial kidney; or (c) an air-filled sac adapted to function as an organ of respiration, i.e., an artificial lung; or (d) a saclike organ of the vertebrate digestive system located between the esophagus and the intestine adapted for temporary food storage and for the preliminary stages of food breakdown, i.e., an artificial stomach.
