      Abstract

      Introduction

      Over the past few decades, the incidence of Rhabdomyolysis (RM) has significantly increased. The prognosis is substantially worse if renal failure develops. Many problems remain to be addressed regarding the pathogenesis, prevention, and treatment of RM. The purpose of this study was to identify and characterize the top 100 most cited publications regarding rhabdomyolysis (RM) by performing a bibliometric analysis.

      Methods

      Publications focusing on RM were identified from the Science Citation Index-Expanded (SCI-E) of the Web of Science Core Collection (WoSCC). Bibliographic information was collected, including year of publication, authorship, publishing journals, institution, country of origin and keywords. CiteSpace V5.6.R2 and the Online Analysis Platform of Literature Metrology were used for descriptive analysis.

      Results

      The 100 most cited articles were published between 1995 and 2016, with citation numbers ranging from 116 to 904. The United States (60) has been the largest contributor to RM research. Hartford Hospital and University of Texas were found to be the most productive institutions, with five articles each. Thompson, PD, who authored six articles, was the most productive author. The American Journal of Cardiology published the most articles (5), followed by the New England Journal of Medicine (4). The top three co-cited journals were the New England Journal of Medicine (74), Lancet (59) and JAMA (54).

      Conclusions

      This study provides valuable information on the study of RM. These findings may be used to guide clinical decision-making and identify new research fields.
