We read with interest the systematic review and meta-analysis of studies assessing the accuracy of blood pressure (BP) measuring devices in children, which was recently published in the journal by Duncombe et al.[1]. This is an important and timely issue and the investigators did a meticulous job by screening 1415 articles and eventually analyzing 38 studies. However, we believe that this analysis has several major methodological issues and therefore the conclusions of the authors are not fully justified on the basis of the available evidence.
