Control
  • Results of the network meta-analyses are presented in grey and results of the pairwise meta-analyses are presented in white. Estimates are displayed as column versus row for the network meta-analyses and row versus column for the pairwise meta-analyses. Results are expressed as standardised mean differences (SMD). A negative SMD indicates a superiority of the first treatment over the comparison treatment.

  • *No evidence on I2 is available as there was only one study for that comparison.

  • †No studies compared combination treatment versus no treatment.

  • N, number of studies in the comparison; NA, not available.
