A NEW GROOVED ASPIRATOR NEEDLE.

A NEW GROOVED ASPIRATOR NEEDLE. In a case of suspected pelvic abscess, I introduced an aspirator needle for diagnostic purposes, and finding pus, I incised the vaginal mucous membrane at the base of the needle with the intention of conducting along the round needle a director, and in the groove of this instrument a narrow scissors with the view of so dilating the opening that I could insert a drainage tube, irrigate and secure drainage. Though the director was rather sharp pointed, the result was to push it out of the abscess wall. It occurred to me that an aspirator needle could be made with a groove like a director for use in similar cases, and when the presence of pus or other accumulations are found, that the grooved director needle could be used without removal, to conduct a knife, scissors or other instruments for dilatation, and the introduction of drainage tubes.
