 The meta-analysis is a tool used to know results of previous research and allows obtaining a result globally. It is known that increase the statistics power and have an estimate of the treatment effect. It allows us to combine the results of studies with different results. Therefore in this paper we present some generalities about the development and the main points to consider when performing a meta-analysis. Meta-analysis is used in different fields of knowledge including genome wide genetic associations, so it is necessary for evidence-based medicine.
