Figure 3

Forest plot of the proportion of patients who achieved anatomical closure following the use of C3F8 gas. Meta-analytic pooling of the proportion of patients who achieved anatomical closure following surgery with C3F8: pooled estimate was 88.36% (95% confidence interval: 85.88% to 90.63%, I2: 0.0%, value for heterogeneity = 0.864); 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.
