Introduction: As the research landscape evolves, we sought to investigate the current most cited Orthopaedic Surgery articles and compare these to previously cited articles. Methods: Web of Science database screened orthopaedic journal articles with comparison to previous data using multivariate regression analysis. Results: Rate of citations increased 172% within the last decade. Previous rank and citations within the last decade had a greater effect on contemporary rank (p = 0.084, p = 0.002, respectively). Conclusion: Trends in investigative research can shift by the next decade. Previous citation rank and citations in last decade contributed most to current rank.
