Abstract

Background: This bibliometric analysis is used to identify publications and highlights the key areas that have significantly shaped modern clinical practice for aortic valve replacement (AVR), which is becoming increasingly relevant. The top 100 most cited manuscripts for AVR were analysed. Method: The Thomson Reuters Web of Science database was searched using the terms ‘aortic valve replacement’, ‘replacement’, ‘aortic valve’ and/or ‘AVR’ for full manuscripts in English Language. The results were ranked by citation number and the top 100 articles were further analysed by subject, author, journal, year of publication, institution and country of origin. Results: 26,782 eligible papers were returned and accumulated 76,680 citations in total, with a mean citation of 767 per manuscript (350-3667). The New England Journal of Medicine accumulated the most citations whereas Circulation published the most papers. Majority of manuscripts examined patients with aortic stenosis, of which half also included aortic regurgitation. The United States of America contributed 51 manuscripts, accumulating 43629 citations. Conclusion: The most cited manuscript, by Leon et al., assessed the outcomes of transcatheter aortic valve implantation in patients with severe aortic stenosis who were unfit for surgical replacement. By providing the most influential references this work serves as a guide to topics of interest in the field of AVR.
