Abstract
Aims: The aim of this bibliometric analysis was to identify the main topics and publications that have enhanced our understanding and influenced the management of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN).
Methods: The Thompson Reuters Web of Science database was searched using the terms 'Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm', or 'IPMN' to identify all English language manuscripts for the study. The 100 most cited articles were further analyzed by journal, topic, year, author and institution.
Results: Results: Total 2,833 eligible manuscripts were identified. The median (range) citation number was 129 (93–1006). The most cited paper presented consensus guidelines regarding the management of IPMN (1006 citations). The Annals of Surgery published the highest number of manuscripts (n = 13) and subsequently had the highest number of citations (n = 2889). The USA published most manuscripts within the top 100 (n = 46). The most discussed topic was IPMN management (n = 29), incorporating diagnosis and surgery. The second most commonly discussed topic was histology (n = 18).
Conclusion: This bibliometric analysis highlights how advances in the histological evaluation of IPMN have influenced current management strategies for IPMN. This manuscript highlights the most cited and influential references related to IPMN and serves as a guide to the most popular IPMN research themes.
