Trends in end-of-life practices before and after the enactment of the euthanasia law in the Netherlands from 1990 to 2010: a repeated cross-sectional survey

The Lancet Jul, 2012 

Comment: Latest meta-analysis from the Netherlands. Claims that the rate of euthanasia remain steady are not true. 2010 data shows that 23% of euthanasia cases are not reported; there were 310 deaths without request or consent and marks the alarming increase in the use of death by 'continuous deep sedation' to 12.3% of all deaths.
