Ethics approval and consent to participate
: This study was authorized by the French Ministry of Research. The authorization number is 13145. To issue such authorization, the Ministry of Research has sought the advice of an independent ethics committee, namely the “Comité consultatif sur le traitement de l’information en matière de recherche (CCTIRS),” which voted positively. French legislation on non-interventional studies requires collecting the non-opposition of patients but does not require written consent. As such, non-opposition was obtained from each patient included in the study for the use of their de-identified medical record data.
