201. Associations of screen work with neck and upper extremity symptoms: a systematic review with meta-analysis. (Abstract)

Associations of screen work with neck and upper extremity symptoms: a systematic review with meta-analysis. It has often been suggested that screen work (ie, work on desktop, laptop, notebook or tablet computers) is a risk factor for neck and upper extremity symptoms. However, an up-to-date overview and quantification of evidence are lacking. We aimed to systematically review the association of exposure to screen work with neck and upper extremity symptoms from prospective studies.An electronic (...) database search (PubMed, Embase, Cinahl and Scopus) for prospective studies on the association of exposure to screen work and musculoskeletal symptoms was conducted. Studies were synthesised regarding extracted data and risk of bias, and meta-analyses were conducted.After screening 3423 unique references, 19 articles from 12 studies (with 18 538 participants) were included for the current review, with the most recent exposure assessment reported in 2005.

205. Measuring the impact of screening automation on meta-analyses of diagnostic test accuracy. (Full text)

Measuring the impact of screening automation on meta-analyses of diagnostic test accuracy. The large and increasing number of new studies published each year is making literature identification in systematic reviews ever more time-consuming and costly. Technological assistance has been suggested as an alternative to the conventional, manual study identification to mitigate the cost, but previous literature has mainly evaluated methods in terms of recall (search sensitivity) and workload (...) reduction. There is a need to also evaluate whether screening prioritization methods leads to the same results and conclusions as exhaustive manual screening. In this study, we examined the impact of one screening prioritization method based on active learning on sensitivity and specificity estimates in systematic reviews of diagnostic test accuracy.We simulated the screening process in 48 Cochrane reviews of diagnostic test accuracy and re-run 400 meta-analyses based on a least 3 studies. We compared

208. Only one-third of hepatocellular carcinoma cases are diagnosed via screening or surveillance: a systematic review and meta-analysis. (Abstract)

Only one-third of hepatocellular carcinoma cases are diagnosed via screening or surveillance: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Early hepatocellular carcinoma diagnosis is associated with better long-term survival. Studies of at-risk patients who are monitored in routine practice have reported an overall adherence rate to hepatocellular carcinoma screening/surveillance of approximately 60% and suboptimal diagnostic efficacy of the current screening/surveillance tools. However (...) , it is unclear how many hepatocellular carcinoma patients were actually diagnosed via screening/surveillance given these obstacles. Therefore, via a systematic review of PubMed and Scopus databases from 2000 to 2019, we aimed to identify the proportion of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma diagnosed via screening/surveillance in routine practice.We included original research articles of studies of patients already diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma that reported the proportion of hepatocellular

211. A Systematic Review of Repeat Fecal Occult Blood Tests for Colorectal Cancer Screening. (Abstract)

A Systematic Review of Repeat Fecal Occult Blood Tests for Colorectal Cancer Screening. Screening with fecal occult blood tests (FOBT) reduces colorectal cancer mortality. Failure to complete repeat tests may compromise screening effectiveness. We conducted a systematic review of repeat FOBT across diverse health care settings. We searched MEDLINE, Embase, and the Cochrane Library for studies published from 1997 to 2017 and reported repeat FOBT over ≥2 screening rounds. Studies (n = 27 reported (...) FOBT ranged from 0.8% to 64.1% (median: 39.2%; IQR: 19.7%-49.4%). Repeat FOBT appeared higher in mailed outreach (69.1%-89.6%) compared with opportunistic screening (24.6%-48.6%). Few studies examined correlates of repeat FOBT. In summary, we observed a wide prevalence of repeat FOBT, and prevalence generally declined in successive screening rounds. Interventions that increase and maintain participation in FOBT are needed to optimize effectiveness of this screening strategy.©2019 American

A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of the Distress Thermometer for Screening Distress in Asian Patients with Cancer. The distress thermometer (DT) is a commonly used tool for screening distress in Asian patients with cancer. However, the optimal cut-off score and discriminative accuracy remain unclear. Hence, this meta-analysis aimed to examine its diagnostic value and optimal cut-off score in Asia. A systematic search was conducted in the PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane Library databases (...) ), specificity of 0.73 (95% CI 0.65-0.80) and AUC of 0.82 (95% CI 0.78-0.85). When the DT was compared to the hospital anxiety and depression scale-total (HADS-T), the cut-off score of 4 showed the best balance between the pooled sensitivity (0.81, 95% CI 0.69-0.89) and specificity (0.74, 95% CI 0.59-0.84), and the AUC was 0.84 (95% CI 0.81-0.87). In conclusion, the DT with a cut-off score of 4 was an effective screening tool in Asian patients with cancer.
