"Only about 15% of medical interventions are supported by solid scientific evidence according to David Eddy (Cardiothoracic surgeon & prof of health policy & management - Duke University, also holds a degree in Mathematics). Only 1% of articles in med journals are scientifically sound & many treatments have never been assessed at all. Often the evidence available contradicted current practice: ex: of 17 RCTs on lidocaine prophylactically in Ps w chest pain, 16 showed no effect & 1 showed a positive result - yet the practice was to give lidocaine. The weakness of scientific evidence underlying medical practice is one of the causes of wide variations in medical practice. The evidence on effectiveness is poor, but the info needed - by purchasers - to choose among different treatments is almost never available. Smith, R. Where is the wisdom? BMJ 1991; 303(Oct 5): 798-799."
