Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are essential to accurately and reliably summarize evidence relating to efficacy and safety of therapies. To improve the clarity and transparency of the reports, an international group that included experienced authors and methodologists developed PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses) as an evolution of the original QUOROM guideline for systematic reviews and meta-analyses of evaluations of health care interventions. The PRISMA Statement consists of a 27-item checklist and a four-phase flow diagram. In this article, we provide a German translation of the PRISMA Statement.
