Clinicopathologic and Prognostic Value of Serum Carbohydrate Antigen 19-9 in Gastric Cancer: A Meta-Analysis

Figure 4

The estimated hazard ratio (HR) was summarized for the association between carbohydrate antigen 19-9 and disease-specific survival. The left-hand column lists the first author of each study; the middle column graphically displays the effect measure for each study incorporating confidence intervals (the black solid point represents effect measure and horizontal line represents 95% confidence intervals), the area of gray square is proportional to the study’s weight in the meta-analysis, and the pooled measure of effect is plotted as a diamond; the right-hand column numerically displays the effect measure, 95% confidence intervals, and weight of each study.
