Test for non-inferiority. Legend: The figure shows two alternative results for the primary outcome. DA and DF indicate the proportion of responders in the decompression alone group and decompression plus instrumented fusion group, respectively. The bars indicate the absolute difference in proportion of responders (DF-DA) with 95% confidence interval (CI) limits. Non-inferiority for DA is shown if the upper limit of the 95% CI for the difference is less than 15%
