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 was planned with the hypothesis that atherosclerosis is in the etiology of peripheral artery disease (PAD), whether symptomatic or not, and therefore thrombocyte-related parameters could show variability.
Material and Methods: A retrospective examination was made of the laboratory records of 48 patients who presented at the Cardiovascular Surgery Polyclinic with mild or severe symptoms and were diagnosed with PAD and a control group of 33 healthy individuals.
Results: No difference was determined between the patient and control groups in respect of age, gender, Platelet Count (Plt), C-reactive protein (CRP), neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), Mean Platelet Volume ( MPV), Hemoglobin (Hgb) and White Blood Cells (WBC ) values. The Platelet distribution width (PDW) value of the patient group was found to be statistically significantly higher than that of the control group (p0.05). PDW was determined with high sensitivity (58.3%) and specificity 861%) for PAD.
Conclusion: In an individual developing PAD, the onset of the atherosclerotic process in the vascular structure is a warning. According to the data obtained in this study, elevated PDW can be used as a marker that the atherosclerotic process has started in the vascular structure.

Keywords: Peripheral artery disease; platelet distribution width; atherosclerosis
