|Issue Date:||May-2021||Source:||40(6):1414-1423||Journal title:||Neurourology and Urodynamics||Department:||Vascular Surgery||Abstract:||AIMS: Electrical neuromodulation of bladder function has been extensively investigated in the literature. To date, there has been no characterization of the field, and there is a lack of bibliometric literature to guide future studies. We directed this scientometric analysis to characterize the distribution, characteristics and relationships of the field, with subanalysis of top 100 articles. METHODS: The Web of Science Core Collection of the Thompson Reuters Web of Science was searched and analyzed to determine distributions and characteristics of clinical research investigating electrical neuromodulation in bladder dysfunction. Field citation and coauthorship networks were mapped, and recent citation bursts of the past decade are described. The top 100 cited articles were categorized, with level of evidence rating system applied. RESULTS: A total of 872 articles published from 1949 until October 2020 were included in field analysis. Europe demonstrated the highest continental productivity within field (n = 539, 61.81%), and the United States the top nation (35.55% of field, 39.24% of top 100 articles). The Journal of Urology has historically published the most articles in the field (n = 150, 17.20%), and top 100 articles (n = 41, 40.20%). Top 100 articles reported studies of neuromodulation effects via sacral neuromodulation (n = 59); of non-neurological bladder dysfunction (n = 72); urinary incontinence (n = 92), frequency (n = 73) and urgency (n = 68) symptomology. CONCLUSIONS: Analysis of electrical neuromodulation of bladder dysfunction literature reveals historical development, core research clusters and relationships, and an increase in publication activity over past decades.||URI:||https://elibrary.cclhd.health.nsw.gov.au/cclhdjspui/handle/1/1964||DOI:||10.1002/nau.24710||Pubmed:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34058034/||ISSN:||0733-2467||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Urology|
