Since the Study Center of the German Surgical Society (SDGC) was established in 2003 it has been supporting surgeons to implement their ideas for multicenter randomized studies. Assistance is provided for development (sample size calculation, protocol, funding application) implementation (submission to ethics committee, data management, monitoring) and analysis (statistical analysis, publication) in close collaboration with biometricians and data managers. Currently more than 2,500 patients have been included in 11 trials. The most complex SDGC study (SYNCHRONOUS) so far with up to 80 participating centers has been activated in September 2011. Furthermore, there is an increasing relevance for systematic reviews and meta analyses with regard to the development of studies and aggregation of results. For this reason a systematic review working group was established within the SDGC. To date 13 publications have been completed and 8 more are underway.
