  • The orthopaedic evidence base is far from ideal. In order to truly ensure the effectiveness of orthopaedic interventions, researchers must design and carry out high-quality randomized controlled trials that strive to minimize bias. Such endeavors will ultimately form a high-quality RCT evidence base, which can subsequently be integrated by systematic reviews and meta-analyses in order to provide clinicians with the best evidence for decision-making.
