Objective: To analyze the Peruvian scientific production on Heart Failure (HF) in the period 2000-2020. Methods: We performed an observational bibliometric study, in the Scopus and Scielo database, of documents published on heart failure by an author with Peruvian affiliation, between the years 2000 and 2020. We describe variables of scientific production, number of annual publications, documents, characteristics of the publications, and institutions. The collaborative networks were analyzed by building a network of nodes using the VOSViewer v1.6.5 software. Results: A 236 publications were found in Scopus and 55 in Scielo. The largest number of documents were original articles followed by review articles. The journal “The Lancet” and “Revista Peruana de Medicina Experimental y Salud Pública” were those that had the highest number of publications. Thirty-one countries were registered that had at least 5 documents published with an author from Peru. Scientific collaboration was mainly with the United States and at the regional level with Argentina. 55 documents were published with only Peruvian authors. Conclusion: The scientific production in HF by Peruvian authors is in exponential growth. And the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia/CRÓNICAS is the Peruvian institution with the most publications on it.
