Quality assessment

The authors undertake a comprehensive search, use transparent methods to reduce bias in the screening and data extraction process and use appropriate methods for quality assessment and synthesis. There are some minor limitations: Only publications in French and English languages were considered and it is not clear if the reviewers contacted authors to identify unpublished studies.
