Bibliometric analysis is of paramount importance in assessing the research impact wherein studies are ranked on the basis of citations received. It also brings out the excellent contribution of authors and journals in adding evidence for future research. This study aimed at evaluating the top 100 most cited articles on anterior communicating artery (ACoA) Aneurysms. Scopus database was searched using title specific search for the aneurysm of ACoA and top 100 most cited articles along with their authors, author IDs, affiliated institutions, countries and funding bodies were identified. Search yielded 841 articles and top 100 articles were identified to include in this analysis which secured 5615 citations. Citations per year was also calculated to minimize the risk of bias. Maximum citations by any article were 242. The United States was the major contributor to the number of articles while Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation became the highest contributing institution. DeLuca J proved to be a pioneer in this specialized area as he penned 6 studies being first author in 4 of them, making him the most frequent author. National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services were the main funding bodies. Subcategory analysis revealed, 50% studies provided evidence for the treatment and the surgical outcome of the aneurysm. Studies like these can aid in better neurological and neurosurgical management in decision making of ACoA aneurysm.
