Abstract

There was a lack of scientific evidence for special manoeuvers during surgical procedures in the lateral cervical triangle. This prompted experts to ask for scientifically unproved manoeuvers during the procedure. "Eminence-based" expert witnesses with a teaching aptitude still have considerable influence on judicial decisions but are an unnecessary burden regarding the provision of medical treatment.
