Copyright © 2022 the Author(s). Published by Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.DESIGN: This is a bibliometric analysis. Performed by Scientific Mapping technique. The purpose of the study is to analyze articles on Kyphoplasty. Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive surgical method. Bibliometrics is the mathematical and statistical quantitative analysis of works. One of the primary uses of bibliometric analysis is scientific mapping. METHOD: To conduct the bibliometric analysis of the subject of Kyphoplasty, the Web of Science Core Collection database was preferred. After the selection of the data set, the data were filtered; as a result, the study was carried out on 2236 articles. Researchers, journals, articles, institutions, and the studies' countries were analyzed. RESULTS: According to the number of articles published in Kyphoplasty, China, USA, Germany, Korea, and Italy are among the leading countries. According to the analysis, the authors with the highest h-index value are Yang HL and Hirsch JA. The European Spine Journal and the Spine are the most impactful journals. CONCLUSIONS: Our study was carried out with the Science Mapping technique using Bibliometrics software. This type of work has become popular in recent years. Such studies are not common in the field of neurosurgery.
