Polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) is a special subtype of AMD, which is one of the leading threats to vision health worldwide.
At this time, many aspects of PCV, from how it works to potential treatments, remain a mystery. In this study Bio Med Frontiers, we explored the frontier researches and revealed the study trends within the study of PCV.
We collected all the publications in this field from 2001 to 2020, analyzed trends within them, and defined the contributions of various countries/regions, institutions, authors, and journals.
Additionally, VOSviewer software was used to define the hot keywords in this field.
A total of 1,190 publications were ultimately examined; We found that PCV is becoming an increasingly relevant topic of research and that Japan has contributed the most publications (428), the most citations (14,504 in total), and the highest H-index value (62) to the field.
Our keywords analysis was classified into four clusters to show the hotspots within the study of PCV, namely mechanism-related, imaging-related, prognosis-related, and therapy-related topics.
The average years in which the keywords appeared the most were also calculated, and we identified anti-VEGF therapy, anti-complement therapy and angiography as having been the main focus in recent years.
These results helped clarify the comprehensive research progress that has been made as well as the future trends in the study of PCV, which can assist and guide future research.

The typology of social predictors as a research tool of studying personnel crisis in Russian health care: The publications review.
- In conditions of societal transformations, social institutions undergo significant alterations that are manifested by institutional inconsistency and dysfunctionality. The transformation of social professional structure of health care system resulted in change of status and Provider trends of social mobility of social professional groups.
- The purpose of the study is to typologize social predictors of professional activity of physicians in health care of the Russian Federation. The social economic transformation and reforms of the National health care system of recent decades initiated trends of deprofessionalization in medicine, status inflation and marginalization of professional groups.
- The phenomenon of professional marginalization of physicians is discussed from perspective of the “concept of status inconsistency” by G. Lensky.
- In aurhoring typology low income of physicians, financial deprivation, reducing of prestige and relative status inflation of medical profession, professional stress, social frustrations and professional burnout are considered as social predictors of professional activity of physicians.
- The destructive consequences of status inflation are considered as social threat to preservation of manpower potential of health care of the Russian Federation.
The problems of implementing strategies of prevention in The Russian Federation: The new considerations of old truths (publications review)
Over the last decades, with purpose of increasing efficiency of medical and preventive activities, the search, development, implementation and improvement of new methods and models of health care system functioning and management of medical organizations is carried out. Purpose of the study – to analyze mechanisms of implementing strategies of medical prevention in the Russian Federation.
The publications on the implementation of strategies of medical prevention in the Russian Federation were analyzed.
The data analysis testifies that improvement of preventive activities at the level of ambulatory polyclinic care is initiated in many subjects of the Russian Federation.
However, the efficiency of these innovations remains relatively low.
The conclusion is made that high morbidity and mortality of non-communicable diseases testify to the most urgent need in optimizing the prevention system.
The development of first medical care support to victims of road traffic accidents: The publications review.
The medical and demographic losses because of road traffic accidents continue to be significant in most economically developed and developing countries.
The national strategies of reducing medical and demographic losses include two groups of measures, depending on the object of exposure:
(1) targeted to decreasing risk of road traffic accidents and
(2) targeted to timely and adequate medical care support of victims.
Beyond this classification are activities targeted to developing and improving in participants of road traffic skills of first self-care and mutual assistance.
The availability of mentioned skills is important for saving lives and preventing permanent disability of victims of road traffic accidents.
The inequity and social disintegration of the disabled: the foreign publications review.
The international research studies demonstrate the stable relationship between disability status and multiple social-economic factors conditioning inequity and disintegration of this category of citizen.
The purpose of the study is to review foreign research publications concerning issues of inequity, stigmatization, and social disintegration of the disabled with limited health possibilities.
The conclusion is made that perception of disability is an important construction impacting not only well-being of people with limited possibilities but also social economic stability of society.
The negative attitude to disability deprives forces people with limited possibilities and results in their social isolation and disintegration at labor market.
On the contrary, healthy society encourages positive attitude to people with limited possibilities and facilitates their social integration.
The evolution of cardiopulmonary resuscitation: Global productivity and publication trends.
There is still no comprehensive bibliometric study in the literature on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), an important topic in emergency medicine, the number of global studies on which is increasing day by day.
This study, it was aimed to analyze the scientific articles on CPR published between 1980 and 2020 by statistical methods and to evaluate the subject holistically.
Articles on CPR published between 1980 and 2020 were downloaded from the Web of Science (WoS) database and analyzed using statistical methods.
Network visualization maps were used to identify trending topics.
Nonlinear regression analysis (exponential model) was used to estimate the number of articles in the coming years.
Correlation studies were conducted using the Spearman correlation coefficient.
A total of 21,623 publications were found. Of these publications, 14,818 (68.5%) were articles.
The top 3 contributing countries to the literature were the United States (5281, 35.6%), Germany (1458, 9.8%), and the United Kingdom (1152, 7.7%). The 3 most active institutions were the University of Washington (417), University of Pittsburgh (361), and University of Arizona (240). The 3 journals with the most publications were Resuscitation (2822), Critical Care Medicine (522), and the American Journal of Emergency Medicine (421).
Product not found
In this comprehensive study, a summary of 14,818 articles was presented.
The trending topics in CPR research in recent years are out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, cardio, simulation, in-hospital cardiac arrest, extracorporeal life support, extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation, targeted management temperature, and outcome.
This article may be a useful resource on CPR global outcomes for clinicians and scientists.
