Benchmarking Endophthalmitis

Endophthalmitis – the purulent inflammation of the intraocular fluids – is never a good sign, and typically arises because of infection. There are a number of types – exogenous (which comprises both acute and chronic postoperative forms, traumatic, filtering bleb-associated, and post-intravitreal injection-arising) and endogenous, with acute postoperative endophthalmitis being the most common form.

But what are your peers’ thoughts on the matter? What are they reading? Where is the research heading? We decided to benchmark the last five years of PubMed-listed literature on the topic. We asked:

What are the major topics for the field?

Which journals have the greatest impact?

How is the knowledge available online?

What type of articles are being published?

Who are the most prolific authors?
