A meta-meta-analysis is a meta-analysis of multiple meta-analyses. In this chapter a meta-meta-analysis from the authors is performed for the purpose of re-assessment of the pitfalls of the original meta-analyses with increased power and sample size. Also a meta-meta-analysis, performed for meta-learning purposes by Juni et al., and published in the BMJ of 2001, is reviewed.
