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: This  study  aimed  to  find  out  whether  there  was  a  correlation  between  D-Dimer  (DD) and  inguinal  hernia.
Material and Methods:  Demographic  data,  direction  of  hernia,  type  of  hernia,  presence  of  local  coexisting  pathology,  family  history  of  hernia,  presence  of  chronic  disease,  chronic  obstructive  pulmonary  disease  (COPD),  hard  labour / sports  history,  body  mass  index  (BMI)  of  the  patients  operated  for  inguinal  hernia  are  recorded:  some  labarotory  parameters  (DD)  in  blood,  CRP,  ESR,  WBC,  neutrophil  ratio  ( NR ),  erythrocyte  distribution  range  ( RDW ),  AST,  ALT,  ALP,  GGT  )  and  their  correlation  with  the  patient  features  were  analyzed.  The  results  were  analysed  using  the  SPSS  statistical  program.  The  correlation  between  the  groups  was  evaluated  by  Chi-square  test.  p0.05  was  considered  significant.
Results:  Total  109  patients  operated  for  inguinal  hernia.  34  of  109  patients  had  DD  high  (31%).  A  statistical  significance  was  found  between  DD  and  those  with  chronic  diseases,  WBC,  RDW,  NR,  type  of  hernia,  family  hernia  history,  heavy  labour/ sports  history  and  COPD  (p0.05).
Conclusion:  DD  may  constitute  an  important  auxiliary  marker  in  suspected  femoral  hernia  and  strangulated  hernia.  DD  in  primary  hernia  was  significantly  higher  than  the  recurrent  hernias  and  DD  rate  in  those  with  no  family  history  of  hernia  was  higher  in  patieents  without  family  history.
Keywords:  Inguinal hernia; D-Dimer; associated factors.
