Although there have been no reported accidental spinal injection of a vinca alkaloid in the United Kingdom since 2001, this study looked at upstream safety issues that could cause this fatal complication. The method used in this study provides a model for evaluating the resilience of safety practices, even in the absence of actual harmful events.
