Funnel plot will be performed to analyze the existence of publication bias if 10 or more literatures are included in this meta-analysis. If the funnel diagram has poor symmetry, it indicates publication bias.[27] Begg and Egger regression test are used to further verify the existence of publication bias.[28,29] If publication bias existed, a trim-and-fill method should be applied to adjust the pooled OR.[30]
