Evolution of Topics in Maxillofacial Prosthetics Publications
Naveau, Adrien / Bou, Christophe / Sharma, Arun
Purpose: To study the evolution of recent topics in maxillofacial prosthetics (MP) research. Materials and Methods: Science mapping analyses were used to measure bibliometric similarities among articles extracted from the Web of Science from the last three decades. Results and Conclusion: Keyword co-occurrence highlighted the rise of computeraided design/computer-assisted manufacturing, mandibular reconstruction, and extraoral prostheses during the last decade. Citation analysis showed that surgery journals kept the leadership on MP publications, but that prosthodontics journals were closing the gap. The United States was the leading country in MP publications over the last three decades, but their lead is fast dissolving worldwide.
