Information about prognosis can be applied to research design and is essential for patient care and counseling. Prognostic study data is only useful if it is valid, transparent, and applicable to your patient. Using a clinical scenario and a relevant study from the urological literature, we outline a method to appraise a prognostic article, understand the results, and manage patients accordingly.
