Figure 2

Forest plot of the proportion of patients who achieved anatomical closure following the use of SF6 gas. Meta-analytic pooling of the proportion of patients who achieved anatomical closure following surgery in the SF6 group. Pooled estimate was 91.73% (95% confidence interval: 88.40% to 94.55%, I2: 38.03%, value for heterogeneity = 0.126). Size of the squares is proportional to the number of cases in the study. Error bars represent 95% confidence intervals. The diamond shape represents the pooled estimate.
