Figure 2 : 

Comparison of results from previous reports (red squares) and results from reanalysis of the AEPEI database using the same methods (blue squares) (adapted from [6]). If the hazard ratio or odds ratio is<1, surgery is beneficial. The squares and horizontal lines correspond to the study-specific adjusted hazard ratios (odds ratios for Wang et al. and Cabell et al.) and their 95% confidence intervals. Modelling, surgery coding: Vikram et al. and Aksoy et al. used Cox, binary variable; Cabell et al. and Wang et al. used logistic regression, binary variable; Tleyjeh et al. used Cox, partitioned time-dependent covariate. NS: not significant; OR: odds ratio. a Short-term mortality, 0–7 days after surgery. b Mid-term mortality, 8 days to 6 months after surgery.
