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: The aim of this study is to present the surgical, oncologic and functional results of the first 34 robotic radical prostatectomy (RARP) procedures performed in our clinic.
Material and Methods: Data of 34 patients who underwent RARP between July 2017 and October 2019 were evaluated.
Results: The mean patient age was 58.73±4.94 years, and the mean preoperative serum prostate-specific antigen level was 8.9±2.07 ng/mL. Bilateral neurovascular bundle (NVB) sparing, unilateral NVB-sparing, and non-NVB-sparing surgery were performed in 7.5, and 22 cases, respectively. The mean prostate weight was 58.73±26.03g. Anterior reconstruction suture was performed in 22 (64.7%) cases. Mean console time, intraoperative blood loss, duration of hospital stay, and urethral catheter removal time were 195.2±14.03min, 120.3±21.2cc, 7.34±1.62 days, and 7.26±1.26 days, respectively. Biochemi¬cal recurrence was observed in two patients, one of whom received maximal androgen blockage (MAB), and the other one received pelvic radiotherapy+MAB. All the patients with at least one-year follow-up were fully continent (0 pads/day). Of the 16 (47%) patients with no preoperative erectile dysfunction (ED) and with at least three-month follow-up, 9 (62.5%) had no ED, with or without any additional medica¬tion including phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitors.
Conclusion: RARP is a safe minimally invasive procedure with acceptable morbidity, excellent operative, pathological and oncological outcomes, and satisfactory functional results.
