Supplementary Material

The plot in supplementary material resembles a symmetrical inverted funnel (the 95%CI), inside which are all the studies included in the meta-analysis. This is a scatter plot of the treatment effects estimated from individual studies on the horizontal axis (mean difference, MD), against a measure of study size on the vertical axis (SE [MD]).
