Background: Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a heterogeneous
disease characterized by persistent sinonasal inflammation and sinus
microbiome dysbiosis. Nasal polyps (NPs) is one of the main
manifestations which cause diverse clinical symptoms of CRS. We
conducted a bibliometric and visual analysis of CRS and NPs articles
published between 2003 and 2022 to provide researchers with the current
state of research and potential directions. Method: We used a
systematic search strategy to search relevant articles in the databases
of the Web of Science from 2003 to 2022. VOSviewers, Bibliometrix R
package, and CiteSpace were used to perform the bibliometric analysis.
Results: 3,907 publications, including 3,266 “articles” and
641 “reviews” were retrieved. The USA made the highest contributions
to global research, followed by China; furthermore, Northwestern
University, Capital Medical University, and Sun Yat-Sen University had
the highest number of publications. A total of 12,894 authors
participated in this research, with the most published author being
Bachert C., followed by Schleimer Robert P. and Schlosser Rodney J.. And
the authors with the most co-citations were Bachert C., Fokkens W.J.,
and Gevaert P. 428 journals had published the articles of this research.
Moreover, the journal with the most publications was the
International Forum Of Allergy & Rhinology and the Journal
Of Allergy And Clinical Immunology received the most citations.
“Covid-19”, “biologic”, and “type 2 inflammation” were the top
current research hotspots. Conclusion: The United States and
Northwestern University were the leading country and institution in
researching CRS and NPs. And Bachert C. is the most influential expert.
The International Forum Of Allergy & Rhinology published the
most articles, and the Journal Of Allergy And Clinical Immunology
got the highest number of citations. Moreover, “Covid-19”,
“biologic”, and “type 2 inflammation” were the trending topics.
