Aim of the Authors is to cast a light on a very severe iatrogenic injury, with long-lasting and potentially devastating consequences for the victims and a very low level of awareness among the general surgeons, who are usually the actors of the damage. The main features of the typically involved patients, their clinical presentation and theresults obtainable after surgeryand rehabilitation are investigated at light ofthe timing of injury and the type of repair.
