Each newly introduced therapeutic method undergoes its evolution which may be subdivided into three phases. The first is as a rule full of enthusiasm and associated with the endeavour to stress the advantages and advance contributed by the newly introduced method. In contrast, the second phase is characterized by various degrees of depression emanating from the shortcomings and risk accompanying the new therapeutic procedure. A certain balance is finally reached during the third phase, when it is possible to evaluate the whole method after an adequate time interval from its “birth” using an appropriate measure of critical and open approach.
