Letters: Scalpels out for 'mischievous, vicious, sensational, insulting' editor of 'Lancet'

HOW extraordinary that the editor of The Lancet remains at heart a naive medical student, who failed to appreciate the vanity of surgeons who operate before an audience. Understandably, the surgeon instinctively tried to conceal his error, when he cut the ureter, by pretending that he had done so deliberately for teaching purposes!
