Title: Compliance with QUOROM and quality of reporting of overlapping meta-analyses on the role of acetylcysteine in the prevention of contrast associated nephropathy: case study
Highlights: Reviews providing at least individual quantitative estimates on role of acetylcysteine in the prevention of contrast associated nephropathy were systematically searched in PubMed, DARE, and The Cochrane Collaboration Library. The main outcome measures were funding, compliance with the QUOROM checklist, scores on the Oxman and Guyatt quality index, and authors' recommendations
