Abstract and Introduction
The relationship between surgery and technology represents a major issue for the future of our profession. Several new technologies are proposed to surgeons and introduced into the clinical practice every year, in many cases after a very limited evaluation. The clinical and economical consequences of this phenomenon and the role of surgeons in managing it represent one of the major challenges we are facing.
