The articles were classified into four types mainly based on the contents concerning the most common subjects in clinical studies. Among these articles, the number of type I (treatment and treatment-related studies) was the most in all these four types. In order to obtain the maximum information, we select articles of type I as the origin of epidemiological data extraction. Meanwhile, this selection also could furthest avoid data overlap calculating. For the articles of type II (diagnosis and clinical evaluation) and type III (nursing and anesthesia), epidemiological data were lack in some studies. The articles of type IV mainly included basic studies and review articles.
