Methods: For the purpose of the study, the studies related to the issue of interest and published until November 2017 were searched in Google Scholar search engine and several international databases, including PubMed, Elsevier, Scopus, web of knowledge, and SID, by two authors independently. The search process was accomplished using the following keywords alone or in combination:
