I don't recall defending that, or any specific treatment.

It would have to be evaluated, like any other procedure, on a case by case basis, taking into account the amount of benefit expected from the treatment and the possible risks (and their frequencies). In this case the possible benefit is zero or nearly so, and the risk (wbile rare) is high. Conclusion: not justified in this case.
