  1. * = possibly rapid (studies which could have been assessed within 2 weeks)
  2. ** 33 studies were included, four studies [14, 15, 28, 29] used both types of method (questionnaire & registry) and were therefore included twice in the review separately for both assessments. In one [29] of these four studies even third assessments that each had a different time-frame were described. The total number of assessments was 38.
