Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the newborns in our hospital with fractures of the femur or humerus and their clinical characteristics.
Material and Methods: This study was conducted as a retrospective trial and using the patient information system, the following clinical data were reviewed: maternal age, parity, gestational age at delivery (week),fetal weight, pregnancy complications (preeclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus [GDM]), the type of delivery (cesarean [CS] or vaginal delivery [ VD]), the fetal presentation, labor induction, meconium-stained amniotic fluid, neonatal birthweight and gender, history of shoulder dystocia and intracranial hemorrhage, type of fracture, presence of clavicle fracture or brachial plexus injury, and if has fetal diagnosis and length of hospital stay (day).
Results: After the screening, 59622 live births were detected in our hospital in the last 2 years. Long bone fractures were detected in eight of the newborns who were consulted for fractures in the orthopedics department.Femoral fractures were found in 3 patients , humeral fractures in 3patients and both femur and humerus fractures in 2 patients,extra clavicle fracture and brachialplexus injury were detected in two patients.The mean age of the mothers was 29 years ,two patients were diagnosed with gestational diabetes and one patient with severe preeclampsia.
Conclusion: The results we found in this study show that long bone fractures are congenital trauma and congenital conditions that require early diagnosis and correct intervention. Especially in the presence of malpresentations and prematurity, the family should be informed about the bone fractures that may develop before cesarean. In addition, careful examination of newborns and avoiding long bone fractures is very important. In our city, these complications are seen with a similar frequency with the literature.
