Arch Surg. 1998;133(4):464. doi:

With the rapid acceptance of some aspects of endoscopic surgery, this "concentrated effort to compile these problems and elaborate in detail on their management" is timely. The sporadic nature of complications makes the approach of a multiauthored text a logical one. Contributors should be expected to have enough surgical volume to speak with some experience; thus, to be invited to contribute to a book on this subject is a backhanded compliment. Of course, any surgeon can plead, "I don't have complications, it's the patient who has them!"
