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.

Aim: In this study, we aimed to present the functional and oncologic results of robotic assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) in clinical stage T1 tumors.
Material and Methods: Fifteen patients who had undergone RAPN for T1a-b kidney tumor between July 2017 and January 2019 were included in the study. The demographic data, mean operation time, estimated blood loss, duration of warm ischemia, length of hospital stay and oncologic results were evaluated retrospectively.
Results: Ten male and five female patients with a mean age of 55.4±7.6 (48-71) years were included in the study. A 4-port trans peritoneal approach was applied to all the patients. Nine right and six left renal masses with a mean tm diameter of 2.8±0.4 (2.4-3.6) cm were operated. The mean operation time was 217 (185-250) minutes, the mean blood loss was 225.6 (180-265) cc. Bleeding requiring transfusion was seen in one patient and a spontaneously resolved ileus was seen in another patient. Urethral stents were placed into two patients because the collector system was opened. 8 (53%) of renal masses were reported as renal cell carcinoma. Surgical margin positivity was identified in 2 (13%) of the patients. No local recurrence or distant metastasis was observed in any of the patients. None of the patients experienced incisional hernia and late complications.
Conclusion: Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy is presently the gold standard treatment for patients with clinical stage T1 renal tumor. RAPN is an effective, safe and minimally invasive treatment modality in patients eligible for partial nephrectomy.

Keywords: Nephrectomy; partial; renal cell carcinomas; robot-assisted laparoscopy
