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: The aim of this study is to compare condylar and ramal asymmetries in different temporomandibular joint disorders.
Material and Methods: A total of 91 patients ranging in age from 15 to 79 were included in this study. The study groups were as follows: temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (OA) group (N=24), disc displacement with reduction (DDWR) group (N=26), disc displacement without reduction (DDWoR) group (N=20), and control group (N=21). All patients’ vertical condylar and ramal heights were measured from panoramic radiographs, and condylar (CAI) ramal (RAI), and total (TAI; condylar + ramal) asymmetry indices were calculated according to Habets el al’s formula.
Results: Statistical evaluations were made with the Kruskal–Wallis test using SPSS. Although TAI (p=0.110) and age (p = 0.610) did not differ significantly among the four groups, RAI (p=0.003) and CAI (p = 0.034) did. In intergroup estimates for RAI comparisons, significant differences were observed between the OA and DDWR groups (p=0.004, p=0.033) and between the OA and control groups (p=0.033). Evaluations of CAI among groups showed significant differences only for the OA vs. control group comparison (p=0.022).
Conclusion: These results show that OA, a degenerative disease, has greater effects on vertical condylar and ramal asymmetry than on disc displacements and that there are no significant differences between the control and disc displacement groups in terms of CAI.

Keywords: Condylar asymmetry; ramal asymmetry; temporomandibular joint disorders
