Abstract

Nonsurgical drainage of the gallbladder incident to a complete investigation of the gatro-intestinal tract has heretofore required several hours. With the improved tube and altered technic, it requires only one-half hour.

DESCRIPTION OF THE TUBE  The olive: The fenestrations and lumen are larger, the lumen extending throughout the entire olive; all sharp edges are rounded, polished and gold plated to prevent discoloration and corrosion.The tube: The overall diameter of the tube and of the olive are thus approximately equal. The proximal end attachments are omitted as unnecessary. An all rubber, 3 ounce syringe with a hard rubber or bakelite cannula is all that is necessary. It facilitates the method of obtaining material for culture.

TECHNIC  The following is an outline of the technic to be used.Time: Preferably 9 a. m., on a fasting stomach.

Material: 

  • Hypertonic solution of sulphate of sodium, magnesium, potassium and calcium warmed.
