Classification of included articles and clinical practices according to the assessment of reproducibility. Detailed Legend: aThe sum of clinical practices with consistent (n = 28) and inconsistent (n = 35) effect estimates between original and reproduction attempts does not sum to 66 due to three practices that could not be categorized as their single reproduction attempt was in progress [38, 42, 43]. bPractices wherein all reproduction attempts demonstrated similar effect estimates (e.g., all lack of efficacy). cPractices wherein effect estimates from each reproduction attempt differed from the previous attempt. dEach box represents the way in which the reproduction attempt changed the results of the original study (e.g., efficacy/harm represents practices wherein the original study demonstrated efficacy but reproduction attempt demonstrated harm)
