In the accompanying illustration is shown a gallbladder band which I devised, and which we have used in the hospital for the past two years with great satisfaction. The patient can turn and lie on either side without leakage of bile, and the bottle can be changed quickly and cleanly. These bands are washed and sterilized and kept ready for use. A small piece of tape is sewed on the edge of the pocket and tied around the neck of the bottle to keep it steady.
