This is a surprising scientific example of not seeing the forest because of the trees which are carefully numbered and described. The error is taking one example from tissue retention and building a theory on it; the researchers take their own good research and simple information and conclude patients do not need 'more complex information'. But the contrast between simple and complex information is too simple.
