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: T1 patients who were operated due to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)were evaluated retrospectively. The objective of this study was to evaluate metastatic lymph node status in T1 tumors and to discuss staging approaches in these tumors.
Material and Methods: A total of 217 patients who met specified criteria between May 2012 and May 2019 were included in the study. Patients operated due to NSCLC who have a tumor size 3 cm were evaluated in terms of age, gender, preoperative diagnostic methods, thorax CT and PET-CT examinations, size, anatomic localization and histopathologic type of tumors, excised mediastinal lymph nodes and pathology results.
Results: Of total 292 lymph node stations sampled in patients with adenocarcinoma, 257 (89.73%) were reported as benign and 30 (10.27) as malignant according to pathologic results. Of total 316 lymph node stations sampled in patients with squamous cell carcinoma, 298 (94.3%) were benign and 18 (5.7%) were malignant.N2 positivity was found in 40 (18.43%) of the 217 patients.
Conclusion: Mediastinoscopy should be performed for staging in the presence of a tumor size above 2 cm, histopathological type of adenocarcinoma, high mass SUVmax values, lymph node with radiological growth and pathological involvement.

Keywords: Lung cancer; lymph node; mediastinoscopy; PET-CT; staging; T1 tumor;  Torax-CT
