Figure 19 is a forest plot that displays effect estimates for serious adverse events in subjects taking statins with or without omega 3 fatty acids. Three studies were pooled, yielding a statistically nonsignificant effect estimate (relative risk = 3.64, lower bound 95% confidence interval 0.77, upper bound 95% confidence interval 17.22). There was no heterogeneity (I2 = 0.0%, chi-squared = 0.05, p-value = 0.97).
