Inconclusive Recommendations

1 LOW quality study, Contradictory studies, Lack of evidence (no studies)

An Inconclusive recommendation means that there is a lack of compelling evidence resulting    in an unclear balance between benefits and potential harm.

Patient preference should have a substantial influencing role.
