Part F. Appendix F.2: Literature Review Search Strategies


Exploded MEDLINE MeSH Search Terms

Explanation: Medical subject headings (MeSH terms). To "explode" terms is a process to retrieve all articles indexed with a given MeSH descriptor in combination with all its conceptually narrower terms from the MeSH thesaurus.

This appendix contains a listing of all "exploded" MeSH headings used in the present search strategy.
