Abstract

Has the spectrum of adverse iatrogenic sequelae changed in the past 25 years? Technologic improvements have eliminated or reduced the risks involved in many diagnostic procedures, but the risks associated with medical therapeutic interventions may be greater than ever. An illustrative case serves to initiate a discussion of strategies to avoid iatrogenic misadventures.
