The authors were becoming increasingly aware of studies reporting RCT which reported trial phase but did not mention study design or randomisation in the title or abstract. The objective of this study is to determine if established RCT literature search filters should include terms for trial phase.

The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of different criteria of maternal near miss in women admitted to an obstetric intensive care unit and their sensitivity and specificity in identifyin...
Evidence synthesis reviews in health care rely on the efficient identification of research evidence, particularly evidence from randomised controlled trials (RCTs). There are no recently validated fil...
We performed a search in the MEDLINE database using the MeSH term: "Acute Kidney Injury", selecting the subtopic "Epidemiology", and applying age and year of publication filters. We also searched for ...
Although studies of visual search have repeatedly demonstrated that visual clutter impairs search performance in natural scenes, these studies have not attempted to disentangle the effects of search s...
The article by Samuel Oppong et al in this issue of the BJOG makes interesting reading (Oppong et al. BJOG xxxx). It describes a study carried out in three tertiary referral hospitals in Southern Gh...
OptEase filters are easier to retrieve but the dwell time is shorter than the Gunter filters. There are more thrombi on the OptEase than on the Gunter at the time of retrieval. OptEase fil...
Audit filters for monitoring trauma care quality are regarded as one of the most essential components of trauma quality improvement programmes; however, there is a paucity of evidence that...
This will be a prospective randomized controlled trial comparing CO2 insufflation and WE in terms of right colon combined adenoma miss rate (AMR) and hyperplastic polyp miss rate (HPMR) by...
The inferior vena cava (IVC) is a large vein that enters the bottom part of the heart. Venous blood from the lower portion of the body drains into the IVC. The IVC then returns blood back ...
Since 2003, that the first retrievable IVC filter was introduced in the U.S,improvements have been made in the filter design to resolve problems of structural integrity and increase the...
Studies designed to examine associations, commonly, hypothesized causal relations. They are usually concerned with identifying or measuring the effects of risk factors or exposures. The common types of analytic study are CASE-CONTROL STUDIES; COHORT STUDIES; and CROSS-SECTIONAL STUDIES.
A technique for identifying individuals of a species that is based on the uniqueness of their DNA sequence. Uniqueness is determined by identifying which combination of allelic variations occur in the individual at a statistically relevant number of different loci. In forensic studies, RESTRICTION FRAGMENT LENGTH POLYMORPHISM of multiple, highly polymorphic VNTR LOCI or MICROSATELLITE REPEAT loci are analyzed. The number of loci used for the profile depends on the ALLELE FREQUENCY in the population.
Hospital or other institutional ethics committees established to consider the ethical dimensions of patient care. Distinguish from ETHICS COMMITTEES, RESEARCH, which are established to monitor the welfare of patients or healthy volunteers participating in research studies.
Works about research studies that evaluate interventions or exposures on biomedical or health-related outcomes. The two main types of clinical studies are interventional studies (clinical trials) and observational studies.
Event that presented a risk but did not result in a patient harm.
