[The effect of stimulating the auricular liver-gall point on the size of gallbladder of the rabbit]
Department of Biology Nanjing University.
After stimulating the auricular liver-gall point of rabbit with electrode. We observed marked contraction of gallbladder. Only one minute after stimulation, the contraction began. About ten minutes after stimulation the contraction was marked and the contraction lasted for 30-40 minutes. The average product of the length and width of gallbladder (15-25 minutes after stimulation) is markedly smaller than that of control (pre-stimulation). This result proves the liver-gall point of rabbit corresponds with its internal organ-gallbladder. The result also present a theoretic basis for clinical therapy of press over the auricular liver-gall point induced the excretion of gallstones.
