Abstract  Objective: To evaluate the methodological and reporting quality of systematic reviews and meta-analyses (SRs/MAs) in the nasogastric and nasojejunal enteral nutrition for severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). Methods: The SRs/MAs of nasogastric and nasojejunal enteral nutrition for SAP published in the journal before July.1st 2018 were identified by searching the databases of OVID, Cochrane Library, Wiley, PubMed, CNKI, Wanfang Data and VIP. The methodological and reporting quality of included studies was respectively assessed by AMSTAR 2 scale and PRISMA statement.  Results: A total of 6 articles included at last. (1) Several issues of methodological quality in 6 studies were reviewed, such as: no prior design, comprehensive searching strategy, assessment of publication bias, the reason for incorporating the type of research design, or the statement of conflict of interest. (2) The average PRISMA score is 18.83 ±1.97 (17-22). Results on the quality of reporting evaluation showed that 5 SRs/MAs were rated as moderate and 1 as high. What’s more, we assessed the quality of indicators of the result by GRADE, but the grade was low. Conclusion: The quality of the involved studies published at home and abroad is uneven, so it is necessary to seek for further improvement of methodology and standardization of reporting to provide high-quality support for evidenced-based decision.
