Quality assessment

The review has clear inclusion criteria, literature searches are well-documented and the authors report a comprehensive screening and data extraction process. They use a recognised tool for risk of bias assessment and synthesise findings using meta-analysis.  It is not clear if the authors contacted experts to identify additional studies and this is a minor limitation.
