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: Hallux valgus (HV) is a common deformity where the hallux deviates laterally in the metatarsophalangeal joint. Although various radiographic measurements have been developed to assess HV, not all are considered universally necessary and the correlations between these methods were not determined. The present study aimed to investigate the correlation between the metatarsus (MT) projection area and the projection rates to all MTs and deformity observed in direct radiographs in HV cases.
Material and Methods: We retrospectively analyzed foot radiographs of 100 female cases (20-60 years old). The cases were divided into two groups of 50 HV and 50 non-HV based on HV angles (HVA). HVA>15˚ was accepted as HV. The MT projection areas and the projection rates to all MTs, HVA, and intermetatarsal angle (IMA) were measured in HV cases. Paired t-tests were used to compare continuous numeric variables (Significance: p ≤ 0.05).
Results: HVA was higher in HV cases (mean, 22.2˚) when compared to the non-HV group (mean, 7.4˚) (p = 0.000). There was no difference between the mean MT projection areas in HV and non-HV groups. While there was no significant difference between the ratios of the projection area in MT I, II, III and IV to total MT area in HV and non-HV groups, the ratio of the projection area of MT V to the total MT area was lower in HV cases when compared to that of the non-HV group (p = 0.027).
Conclusion: Although it was observed that HV did not affect the projection area of each MT, when the total MT area was considered, it was observed that the projection area of MT V was lower. This finding supported that HV is a condition that affects the whole foot.

Keywords: Hallux valgus; metatarsus area; radiography

Annals of Medical Research is the scientific official journal of the Inonu University Faculty of Medicine. It is published monthly. The essential aim of the Annals of Medical Research is to publish scientifically high quality clinical and experimental research articles on fields of medicine which can contribute to the literature data. In addition, review articles, case reports, editorials, letters to the editors and manuscripts on publication ethics and medical history, which can contribute to the education and practices of physicians and health sector professionals within the scope of the journal’s target audience and which can increase the level of scientific communication between the authors and readers, are included in the scope of the journal.
