Carmen J Gerrone: Combined pneumo-needle and trocar apparatus. Mathews Woodbridge & Collins, May 17, 1994: US05312351 (150 worldwide citation)

A trocar houses a pneumo-needle, the cutting tip of which emerges eccentrically from the tip of said trocar. An obturator, in turn, is housed within said pneumo-needle and is controlled at the distal end of the pneumo-needle by a spring release button. A latch attached to the trocar permits the pneu ...
