Summary of "APRISMA-compliant systematic review and meta-analysis determining the association of miRNA polymorphisms and risk of congenital heart disease."

Recent genetic association studies showed conflicting results on the relationship of miRNA single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and congenital heart disease (CHD) risk. The purpose of the present systematic review was to collect the current available evidences to evaluate the association between miRNA polymorphisms and CHD risk.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.

Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.
