abstract

  • These results emphasize the heterogeneity of worldwide transplant practices. Local preferences or biases likely result in similar patients being offered different transplant and treatment procedures. The degree of practice variation also highlights the need for clinical trials to clarify areas of controversy. Where clinical trials are not feasible, data from observational studies may be the best available evidence to guide practice.
