Abstract

Background

The high incidence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in children, combined with the challenges in diagnosis and treatment options, the difficulty of predicting the outcome of each case, and also the wide variety of possibly lifelong complications, has led to an extraordinary number of published papers regarding this topic. This bibliometric analysis is aimed at identifying and reviewing the 100 most cited papers in the most challenging and trending aspects of pediatric traumatic brain injury.

Methods

A search was performed using the Web of Science database in October 2018. Results were organized by citation number, and the 100 most cited papers were further reviewed and analyzed.

Results

Our search resulted in 2754 published papers from 1975 until October 2018, of which 1783 (64.74%) had been published in the last decade (2010–2018). The 100 most cited papers about traumatic brain injury in children have an average citation of 140.59 and have been published in 44 different journals. Four hundred thirty-five authors have contributed to these prominent articles, most of them from the USA.

Conclusions

By reviewing those highly cited papers, we sought to offer significant help not only for studying this challenging field but also for designing new studies.
