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: It is to review the clinical features, and surgical, and visual outcomes of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in a pediatric population.
Material and Methods: Medical records of 31 children aged 16 years old or younger with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment were retrospectively analyzed. Cases of acute retinopathy of prematurity were excluded. The data for etiologies, risk factors, prior intraocular surgery, therapeutic approach options, anatomic and functional results were evaluated.
Results: Thirty-three eyes of 31 patients with RRD were evaluated. The mean patient age was 11.42±3.82 years (range 3-16). There were 26 (83.9%) males and 5 (16.1%) females. The most common etiology was trauma. At presentation 57.5% of affected eyes (19/33) had a visual acuity worse than 20/400. Preoperative retinal tear was found in 60.6% (20/33) of patients. At initial examination, proliferative vitreoretinopathy was detected in 36.3% (12/33) of patients. The most common primary operation was scleral buckle with subretinal fluid drainage (69.6%, 23/33). Anatomical reattachment was accomplished in 84.8% of cases (28/33). At the final visit, 78.78% of affected eyes (26/33) had a better visual acuity when compared to preoperative examination. In nine of affected eyes (27.27%), visual acuity was 20/200 or better. Mean follow-up time was 37.5 months (range 3-72).
Conclusion: In our series, pediatric RRD occurred most commonly in association with trauma. Most eyes were anatomically reattached, and most eyes retained vision of 20/800 or better. Preserving vision in children with RRD is of great importance because of high risk of vision threatening events to the fellow eye.
