However, in our study, some factors that could influence the effect size, such as study design and patient populations, are not identical among all included studies. We therefore chose a random-effect model to account for heterogeneity in the study design and patient selection among all eligible studies. 2. The assessment of the methodological quality… CONTINUE READING
