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 published monthly.

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between ventricular premature complexes (VPC) and Mediterranean diet score. Rhythm disturbances in the heart significantly affect the quality of life of the patients.
Material and Methods: This study was conducted on 50 patients with palpitations who were referred to the cardiology outpatient clinic and had more than 10000 VPC per day as a result of a 24-hour holter, and 50 patients who presented with palpitations but had less than 10,000 VPC in the holter. Diet quality was determined by scoring method (5, 6-9 and ≥10 points) ‘Mediterranean Diet Adaptation Scale’ and compared between groups.
Results: There was no difference between the two groups in terms of clinical and demographic characteristics. Mediterranean diet scores were found lower in patients with VPC’s ≥10.000/day (p0.001). There was a significant negative correlation found between number of VPC and Mediterranean diet score (p0.001, r = -0.652).
Conclusion: The protective role of Mediterranean diet type nutrition on the frequency of VPC was clearly observed in our study. This study, which is one of the limited numbers of studies examining the relationship between Mediterranean diet and VPC, may be helpful in understanding the pathophysiology of VPC.

Keywords: Ventricular premature complexes; Mediterranean diet score; arrhythmia
