Answer

AUA/SUO – Guideline recommendations are based on literature review or expert consensus. The evidence strength is rated based on level of certainty from A (high certainty) to C (low certainty) and the magnitude and balance between benefits and risks/burdens. Recommendations range from Strong (substantial beneift of harm), Moderate (moderate benefit or harm), Conditional ((No apparent net benefit or harm), Clinical Statement (clinical care that is widely agreed upon by urologists or other clinicians with or without medical evidence) or Expert Opinion (consensus of the panel based on members' clinical training, experience, knowledge, and judgment).
