Key research papers

We have put together short summaries of key papers across all upper GI specialties. They all follow a common format which includes a summary of the trial’s PICO (patients, intervention, comparator, outcomes), main findings, implications for practice and a critique. The critique comprises an assessment of internal (bias) and external (generalisation) validity. Internal validity follows the format of the Cochrane Risk of Bias tool.
