Moxibustion for treating chronic pelvic inflammatory disease: A protocol for systematic review and meta-analysis.


BACKGROUND:Chronic pelvic inflammatory disease (CPID) is a difficult-to-treat gynaecological disorder, which has complex etiologies, among married women. In recent years, moxibustion has gradually shown its clinical advantages and been more and more widely used In China. The protocol is try to synthesize and assess the effectiveness and safety of moxibustion for patients with CPID. METHODS:Seven databases as following: PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, WangFang Database, Chinese Scientific Journal Database, Chinese Biomedical Literatures Database will be searched from their inception to May 2020. No restrictions about language and status. Study selection, data collection, and quality assessment will be respectively conducted by 2 researchers. Based on the heterogeneity test results, the fixed-effects or random-effects model will be selected to synthesize data. The effective rate, Pelvic inflammatory mass diameter and Pelvic fluid depth will be the primary outcomes. Patient reported outcome scale, visual analog scale, C-reactive protein, transforming growth factor β1 =  transforming growth factor β, incidence of any adverse events will be the secondary outcomes. Revman 5.4 software will be implemented for data synthesis. Dichotomous data will be represented by risk ratio for efficacy and safety of CPID treated with moxibustion, while continuous data will be represented by mean difference with a 95% confidence interval. RESULTS:The results of this study will be published in a peer-reviewed journal. This study will provide a comprehensive review of the available evidence for the treatment of moxibustion with CPID. CONCLUSIONS:This study expects to provide high-quality, evidence-based recommendations on further treatment for clinical guidance of CPID. TRIAL REGISTRATION NUMBER:CRD42020158744 in PROSPERO 2020.
