This may be a potential source of bias, if a surgeon consciously or subconsciously favors one procedure over 13 CHA PT ER 2 Clinical trials in urology another [7]. One potential solution to this challenge is the concept introduced by Devereaux et al. [7] of “expertisebased” clinical trials, where a surgeon only performs one procedure in which he/she has special skill or experience. The comparison procedure would be performed by a different surgical expert. In this manner, potential bias from unblinded surgeons would be minimized.

The randomization in RCTs is intended to protect against this problem. Blinding is another important component of RCTs. The strongest RCTs use a double-blind procedure in which neither clinicians nor patients know which treatment is being administered. Blinding is particularly important when the disorder under study is likely to manifest large placebo effects. Blinding is not always possible, however. For example, it is not possible to blind a surgeon to the type of surgery he or she is to perform or to blind a patient to the fact that she is to receive a pill rather than an intravesical treatment.

Conclusion Results of well-designed and executed RCTs provide the highest level of evidence for the practice of urology. Evidence suggests that the quality of reporting in urologic RCTs is at times suboptimal [20,22]. Therefore, the informed reader of the urological literature should be aware of the design and statistical elements which safeguard against bias and misleading results from trials. Ultimately, becoming an informed consumer of the urological literature should be the goal of every urologist aspiring to an evidence-based clinical practice.
