Unreported standard errors in meta-analysis

A study that would otherwise be eligible is commonly excluded from a meta-analysis when the standard error of its treatment-effect estimator, or the estimate of the variance of the outcomes, is not reported and cannot be recovered from the available information. This is wasteful when the estimate of the treatment effect is reported. We assess the loss of informa tion caused by this practice and explore methods of imputation for the missing variance. The methods are illustrated on two sets of

In this systematic review, we aim to evaluate the association between cerebral hypoperfusion and WM changes in rodents by we meta-analyzed on published studies on the measurements of CBF and the total volume of WM in cerebral hypoperfusion model mice and aging mice.

The experimental studies allow the evaluation of vector competence of suspected mosquitoes for transmission of dirofilariasis (Nayar and Knight, 1999). The results of such experimental studies have been recorded, but no comprehensive evaluation of vector efficiency has been done in all mosquitoes to date. The current systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted on published studies, documenting the prevalence of D. immitis

Meta-analysis is a tractable and powerful statistical tool developed to generate a quantitative summary of all the published literature and draw conclusions across multiple studies (Arnqvist and Wooster, 1995). Therefore, meta-analysis was chosen to address this issue. The specific objective of

Effectiveness of different psychological interventions in reducing fixed orthodontic pain: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Background/Objective: Pain induced by tooth movement is a common experience for orthodontic patients. The effectiveness of psychological intervention, as a new approach to control pain, has not been fully explored. Hence, this systematic review and meta-analysis is intended to evaluate the analgesic effect of psychological intervention within the week after fixed orthodontic initial arch wire placement. Methods: A computerised literature search was conducted in the Medline (1966-2019), Embase

The role of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of occult scaphoid fractures

Abstract Background: Ultrasonography is widely utilized by emergency physicians and radiologists to diagnose various orthopaedic diseases, including fractures. We aim to derive a definitive estimate of the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasonography in clinically suspected scaphoid fractures. Methods: We undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis of included diagnostic cohort studies that discussed the use of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of occult scaphoid fractures. We searched the
