Results: In the analyzed period 4,635 BR in 297 published articles were mentioned, with an average of 15.6 by article and maximum of 129, 69.9% primary sources. The isolation index is about 28,6. The most referenced documents are original (53.4%) and revisions (21.5%). 51.3% use the Spanish language. The English is the language more used in the references of revisions (70.9%) and cases (55.6%). 171 journals (78.8%) are mentioned a single time.
