Structural equation modeling versus marginal structural modeling for assessing mediation in the presence of posttreatment confounding.

Abstract

Inverse probability weighting for marginal structural models has been suggested as a strategy to estimate the direct effect of a treatment or exposure on an outcome in studies where the effect of mediator on outcome is subject to posttreatment confounding. This type of confounding, whereby confounders of the effect of mediator on outcome are themselves… (More)
