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: This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of median ulnar nerve selective blockage vs. brachial plexus blockage in day procedures such as carpal tunnel release surgery. We hypothesized that selective median and ulnar blockage is a feasible classic axillary approach.
Material and Methods: This randomized, controlled, double-blind, single-center study included 60 patients. Patients were randomly allocated to two groups; namely, the plexus blockage group (control) and selective group. Patients in the plexus blockage group were administered with 15 ml of local anesthetic for axillary plexus, and in the selective group, 2.5 ml of local anesthetic was applied under USG guidance. We evaluated of full sensory and motor block.
Results: The onset of motor block time was observed to be longer and recovery time was shorter in the selective group than in the plexus blockage group (P0.05).
Conclusion: Selective nerve block has been shown to be more advantageous than the classic axillary approach of brachial plexus block for day procedures such as carpal tunnel release surgery.
Keywords: Carpal tunnel syndrome; brachial plexus blockage; ultrasonography; ulnar nerve block; median nerve block
