We read the article “Most cited 100 articles from Turkey on abdominal wall her- nias: a bibliometric study” by Kulacoğlu et al (1). It is a very interesting, valuable and encouraging study for abdominal wall hernias especially for inguinal her- nias. However, we think a highly cited article from Turkey written by Isik et al. “Metalloproteinases and Their Inhibitors in Patients with Inguinal Hernia” (Figure 1) published at World Journal of Surgery in 2017 should be ranked (2). We attached the images of citations of Web of Science/Google Scholar (Figure 2-3) for their research in our country (3,4).
