Figure 6 is an attrition diagram that depicts the status of documents that the American Association for the Advancement of Wound Care submitted for possible inclusion in the report.

The diagram begins with a box outlining the total submission of 582 documents. Several boxes ensue which are connected by arrows going from top to bottom which follow the submissions as they are being screened for possible inclusion in the report.

In the first frame, we compare AAWC's submission to submissions by other interested stakeholders and remove any duplicates. AAWC had 582 duplicate submissions.

Due to the exclusion of all 582 submissions, zero submissions remained for possible inclusion in the report. Note: Language has been corrected to reflect screening of meeting abstracts, poster presentations and other documents in addition to abstracts of full articles.
