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.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical, radiological and functional results of patients treated with different methods in our clinic for proximal humerus fracture.
Material and Methods: A total of 106 patients with a diagnosis of proximal humerus fracture, who were scheduled for treatment, received management and followed up periodically after discharge were included. Patient files, X-RAY radiographs in the PACS system, surgical notes and outpatient epicrisis were used. Functional results were evaluated according to Constant shoulder score at the last visit.
Results: The mean age of the patients was 53.6 years (17-94). The mean follow-up period was 11.3 months (6-40 months). 55 (51.9%) had Type II, 35 (33%) had Type III and 16 (15.1%) had Type IV proximal end humeral fractures. As a result of the evaluation performed at the last follow-up of the patients, Constant-Murley’s total score was 64.50 out of 100 (31-88). Score distribution according to Neer classification of patients; A Constant-Murley score median with a Neer Type II fracture was 74.00 (36-88), a Constant-Murley Score median with a Neer Type III fracture was 61.00 (31-78), and a Constant-Murley score median with a Neer Type IV fracture was 44.50 (33-70).
Conclusion: When the fracture type and functional outcome of the patients were compared, functional outcome decreased as the fracture type increased. Young patients had better functional results than older patients.

Keywords: Proximal fracture of the humerus; neer classification; constant-murley score; functional results
