The data will be entered into the Zotero software program that will delete duplicate articles, after the selected material will be transferred to Excel spreadsheet on its own instrument. The studies will be classified according to their level of evidence, bias and risk factor. The results will be analyzed and tabulated and discussed in order to better understand the results. If possible, meta-analyzes will be carried out for the aggregated results.
