- Methodology description
- We included comparative studies of imaging and pharmacologic and surgical interventions published in English from 1982 to October 2014. We also included case series addressing harms of interventions and case series and systematic and narrative reviews to address contextual questions. Two investigators independently screened studies against predetermined inclusion criteria and independently rated study quality. We extracted data into evidence and summary tables and summarized them qualitatively and quantitatively via network meta-analysis. We also assessed the strength of the evidence for key interventions and outcomes.
