Research hotspot and trend of chronic wounds: a bibliometric analysis from 2013 to 2022.
Chronic wounds have been confirmed as a vital health problem facing people in the global population aging process. While significant progress has been achieved in the study of chronic wounds, the treatment effect should be further improved. The number of publications regarding chronic wounds has been rising rapidly. In this study, bibliometric analysis was conducted to explore the hotspots and trends in the research on chronic wounds. All relevant studies on chronic wounds between 2013 and 2022 were collected from the PubMed database of the Web of Science (WOS) and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). The data were processed and visualized using a series of software. On that basis, more insights can be gained into hotspots and trends of this research field. Wound Repair and Regeneration has the highest academic achievement in the field of chronic wound research. The United States has been confirmed as the most productive country, and the University of California System ranks high among other institutions. Augustin, M. is the author of the most published study, and Frykberg, RG et al. published the most cited study. Furthermore, the hotspots of wound research over the last decade were identified (e.g., bandages, infection and biofilms, pathophysiology and therapy). This study will help researchers gain insights into chronic wound research's hotspots and trends accurately and quickly. Moreover, the exploration of bacterial biofilm and the pathophysiological mechanism of the chronic wound will lay a solid foundation and clear direction for treating chronic wounds.
