Cranial base characteristics in anteroposterior malocclusions: A meta-analysis

To investigate cranial base characteristics in malocclusions with sagittal discrepancies. Materials and Methods: An electronic search was performed in PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library. A fixed- or random-effect model was applied to calculate weighted mean difference with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) according to statistical heterogeneity. Outcome measures were anterior, posterior, and total cranial base length and cranial base angle. Sensitivity analysis and publication bias were conducted.
