Materials and methods: The study was carried out on January 13, 2022. Bibliometric analysis based on document research methods was used. Scopus, one of the bibliometric databases, was assessed using keywords in English. Publications were found by entering “TITLE (coronary) AND TITLE (artery) AND TITLE (bypass) AND TITLE (grafting) OR TITLE (surgery)” into the search bar section. Descriptive data were examined statistically using percentage and frequency values.

Results: In the field of medicine, 7,688 articles were obtained as a result of the evaluation of research articles on coronary artery bypass surgery. There were 372 articles from Türkiye. The United States (1,669), Japan (1,334), and China (555) had the most publications. Türkiye was in sixth place. The Turkish institutions with the highest number of publications in this field were Turkiye Yuksek Ihtisas Hospital (n=23), and Istanbul University (n=23). A total of 62,195 citations were obtained for published research articles (n=7,688). The articles published from Türkiye received 2,481 citations.

Conclusion: Research on coronary artery bypass graft surgery, which is one of the most important topics in cardiovascular surgery worldwide, needs to be increased globally, particularly in developing countries.
