Urology comprises of a variety of topics, including prostate cancer, bladder cancer, renal cancer, testicular cancer, penile cancer, urolithiasis, sexual and reproductive health, LUTS/BPH, chronic pelvic pain, urological infections, neuro-urology, urological trauma, etc.
The incidence of urological diseases is increasing due to the global population becoming older. Urological diseases are widespread among the elderly, and are associated with a poor quality of life. As a result, socio-economic cost also increases.
There is plenty of cutting-edge research in urology (anticancer agents, minimally invasive surgery, the role of the microbiome in urine, etc.) and many debates.
A systematic review and meta-analysis of these debates could be helpful in real clinical settings.
Systematic reviews are research works incorporating the best available scientific studies for a particular research subject. A systematic review is a research process that includes a comprehensive and systematic literature search, the selection of literature based on predetermined inclusion/exclusion criteria, and the risk assessment of the selected literature. A meta-analysis is a research method statistically synthesizing data from primary studies selected from a systematic literature review. A network meta-analysis compares multiple interventions (three or more) and therapies using direct and indirect comparisons from a network of studies.
We invite colleagues worldwide to report their systematic reviews and meta-analyses in urology for evidence-based treatments in this Special Issue, welcoming meta-analyses concerning any urological issue.
