The disadvantages of 24 TAPPING, ASPIRATION, ETC. leaving a patient for many hours with a trocar in the peritonealcavity are, that the patient has to lie very quietly or run therisk of the trocar slipping out, and there is a certain amountof danger of erysipelas resulting from the prolonged irritation. ASPIEATION. for aspiration, the most convenient instruments consist ofwhat may be called an exploring instrument; and a secondwith which large quantities of fluid can be removed; the.

The first of theseinstruments is that of Dieulafoy; it consists of an exhaustingcylinder, which can contain fully two ounces, and is provided withtwo stop-cocks at one end. Before the air is exhausted by withdrawing the piston, bothstop-cocks are closed ; to one is attached a piece of rubber tubewith thick walls to the other end of which a hollow sharp-pointedneedle is fitted. It is to be used when there is a doubt as towhether a growth contains fluid or not: the syringe is exhausted,the needle is rendered aseptic, and is plunged into the mostlikely part of the swelling. The stop-cock connected with theneedle is opened, whereupon fluid, if present in the tumour,flows into the cylinder; should the amount of fluid be evidentlysmall, this stop-cock is closed when the cylinder is full, and the ASPIRATION. 25 fluid it contains is dri
