OBJECTIVES: To investigate the methodologic quality and statistical reporting of
reports of trials indexed on the Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro)
classified in the musculoskeletal subdiscipline, and to analyze the
characteristics of the trials that can predict trial report quality. DESIGN:
Cross-sectional study based on a collection of randomized controlled trials. We
randomly selected 19% of trials coded as musculoskeletal from PEDro. Methodologic
quality was assessed using the PEDro scale. We assessed aspects of the trial
using 9 items from the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT)
statement. We performed multivariate linear regression analysis models to predict
the total PEDro score.
SETTING: Not applicable.
PARTICIPANTS: Not applicable.
INTERVENTIONS: Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Not applicable. RESULTS: A
total of 1404 articles were included in the analysis. The mean total PEDro scale
score was 5.27+/-1.63 points, which reflects low methodologic quality. There was
a slight improvement in the quality of articles over time.
The characteristics
that predicted the total PEDro scale score were endorsement of the CONSORT
statement, sample size calculation, lower number of primary outcomes, evaluation
of electrotherapy as intervention, if the trial reported the research design in
the title, reporting of participant flow diagram, years since publication (most
recent trials), and trials published in English. CONCLUSIONS:
The quality of the
trials in musculoskeletal physical therapy is suboptimal.
The use of reporting
checklists (eg, CONSORT statement) should be mandatory in all journals. Journal
reviewers and journal editors should also use the CONSORT statement during the
review process.
