Characteristics of Highly Cited Articles in Interventional Cardiology.

Citation classics have been published in many fields of medicine; however, none have focused on interventional cardiology. The goal of this study was to identify the top 100 articles in the field of interventional cardiology and highlight their important trends and characteristics. The Scopus database was used by two independent reviewers to extract the top 100 articles using a variety of keywords. We found articles published between 1953 and 2012. Majority (n=78) of the top 100 articles were published between 1996 and 2010 while USA was affiliated with the highest number of articles in our list (n=68). Over half (n=54) the articles were funded. Private funding was correlated with higher citations (p=0.036). A third (n=33) of the papers had authors with conflicts of interest; however, conflict of interest had no effect on citations (p=0.837). Majority (n=57) of the articles studied coronary angioplasty and stenting; followed by coronary angiography (n=14). Women were underrepresented, with only 11 female first authors in the top 100 papers, and only one female in the list of top authors who had 5 or more publications. In conclusion, the following features define the typical highly cited article in interventional cardiology – a clinical trial conducted in the USA, which studies angioplasty, and has been published relatively recently in a high impact journal by a male first author.
