Dr. George P. Muller and I have found this suction tip exceedingly useful on many occasions. It has been used chiefly in gastro-enterostomies, in which, after a small incision has been made into the stomach or jejunum, the aspirator is introduced to remove any fluid present. The suction tip is then held tightly against the stomach or bowel, and the incision is made directly down on the groove. In this way, the bowel and stomach are opened with a minimum of injury.
