A Systematic Review is an attempt to distill the essence of a large number of studies in medicine by first asking a research question and then first identifying and later synthesizing carefully chosen studies of a high quality which might provide the answers. A more precise definition is ‘a summary of the medical literature that uses explicit and reproducible methods to systematically search, critically appraise and synthesise the results of multiple primary studies related to each other by using strategies to reduce bias and random errors’ [1].
