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: Undescended testis (UDT) is the most common congenital urinary system disease. Delayed treatment increases the risk of infertility or malignancy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of educational status and geographical location of the parents (rural vs. urban) on the timing of surgery in patients with UDT.
Material and Methods: The retrospective study included 248 patients that underwent surgery due to UDT between 2014 and 2018. The patients were divided into two groups based on age at surgery: (I) >1 year and (II) ≤1 year. Data regarding the educational status and geographical location of the parents were obtained via telephone interviews.
Results: Of the 248 patients, 67% (n=166) of them were aged over 1 year (Group I) and 33% (n=82) of them were aged below 1 year (Group II). Mean age at surgery was 48.98±29.25 months in Group I and 9.68±1.98 months in Group II. The educational status of the parents was higher in the patients aged below 1 year than in patients aged over 1 year. In addition, the patients living in urban areas admitted to the hospital earlier than those living in rural areas.
Conclusion: Both the parental educational status and the geographical location of the parents had a significant effect on the timing of surgery in UDT patients.
Keywords: Undescended testis; education status; geographical location
