Select [D] below for full text description of this figure.

Figure 9 is an attrition diagram that depicts the status of documents that ConvaTec submitted for possible inclusion in the report.

The diagram begins with a box outlining the total submission of three 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 ConvaTec's submission to submissions by other interested stakeholders and remove any duplicates. ConvaTec had one duplicate submission.

An arrow leads from the two Unique Submissions to the Initial Screening Phase where documents may be excluded, used in our Background Section or passed to the next level. In this instance, one document was identified as a personal communication and excluded and one document was identified for inclusion in our Background Section.

Due to the exclusion of all three 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.
