Abstract

Introduction: Although infective endocarditis (IE) is rare disease, this disease has importance due to its high morbidity and mortality rates. The exact incidence is not known as it is not a reportable disease. Unlike developed countries, the disease affects the young more than the elderly in developing countries. Most of the time, the diagnosis cannot be made at the first examination and the disease is often overlooked. In order to reduce the mortality and morbidity of this disease, it is important to quickly recognize the disease by following current diagnosis and treatment methods, to identify the causative agent and to treat accordingly. Both the epidemiology and the management of IE are changing due to medical advances. This situation may also be reflected in scientific publications. We aimed to analyze the global researches on IE.
Material and methods: The Scopus database was searched for bibliometric analysis without selecting document type. Data were retrieved for the time period January 1, 1940 and Semptember 26, 2021, containing the keywords " Infective’’ and’’endocarditis " in their title.
Results: 7911 publications were included in the study. The first publication was made in the year 1891. Most of the publications were research articles [n=5784 (73.11%)] and were from the United States of America (USA) [n =1622 (20.50%)]. Japan, France, United Kingdom and Spain were also in the top 5 publishing countries on IE.
Conclusions: Infective endocarditis is still an important reason of mortality, and there are many unanswered questions about the managament and preventation of this disease. This situation reflected the scientific publications. Since this is a global problem, not just some developed countries involved in the IE research, also more countries should be encouraged to participate the studies on IE.

Resumen

Introducción: Si bien la endocarditis infecciosa (EI) es una enfermedad rara, esta enfermedad tiene importancia por sus altas tasas de morbilidad y mortalidad. No se conoce la incidencia exacta ya que no es una enfermedad de notificación obligatoria. A diferencia de los países desarrollados, la enfermedad afecta más a los jóvenes que a los ancianos en los países en desarrollo. La mayoría de las veces, el diagnóstico no se puede hacer en el primer examen y la enfermedad a menudo se pasa por alto. Para reducir la mortalidad y morbilidad de esta enfermedad, es importante reconocer rápidamente la enfermedad siguiendo los métodos de diagnóstico y tratamiento actuales, para identificar el agente causal y tratar en consecuencia. Tanto la epidemiología como el manejo de la EI están cambiando debido a los avances médicos. Esta situación también puede verse reflejada en publicaciones científicas. Nuestro objetivo era analizar las investigaciones globales sobre la EI.
Material y métodos: Se buscó en la base de datos Scopus para el análisis bibliométrico sin seleccionar el tipo de documento. Se recuperaron datos para el período de tiempo del 1 de enero de 1940 y el 26 de septiembre de 2021, que contenían las palabras clave "Infeccioso" y "Endocarditis" en su título.
Resultados: Se incluyeron 7911 publicaciones en el estudio. La primera publicación se realizó en el año 1891. La mayoría de las publicaciones fueron artículos de investigación [n = 5784 (73,11%)] y fueron de los Estados Unidos de América (EE.UU.) [n = 1622 (20,50%)]. Japón, Francia, Reino Unido y España también se encontraban entre los 5 principales países editores en la EI.
Conclusiones: La endocarditis infecciosa sigue siendo una causa importante de mortalidad y hay muchas preguntas sin respuesta sobre el manejo y prevención de esta enfermedad. Esta situación reflejó las publicaciones científicas. Dado que este es un problema global, no solo algunos países desarrollados involucrados en la investigación de EI, también se debe alentar a más países a participar en los estudios sobre EI.
