The purpose of a conculation is to seek the opinions and advice of those whom we recognize to be more expert in a particular field of medicine than we are. Most surgeons regard the anesthesiolgist as a conculatant. Thus we analyzed 308 cases of interdepartmental consulatation submitted to our department from June 1991 to Novermber 1991. All case were elective ones and emergent cases were excluded.
