This study has demonstrated that the literature infrequently reports useful data toward understanding the association between cSMT, CADs and stroke.

We suggest that through the systematic collection of data features presented in this paper, a clearer clinical picture of the association between cSMT and CAD would be possible. This study lays the groundwork for developing a universal reporting tool for adverse events related to cSMT. […]
