This is a very interesting summary of these two important trials. Thank you. However, your review doesn't really address the key methodological issue, which is the choice of trial design. Shouldn't investigators be seeking evidence of superiority when testing new surgical interventions? Particularly, when those interventions are more expensive for patients/healthcare systems than usual care. Matthew Costa
