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 incidence of antenatal hydronephrosis (AHN) has also increased with the raised use of ultrasonography (US); however, there is no consensus on how to approach the babies who were diagnosed prenatally with AHN. The present study aims to investigate the postnatal examination, treatment, and results of babies diagnosed with AHN.
Material and Methods: In this study, 276 infants who were followed-up with the diagnosis of AHN between January 2012 and December 2015 in the pediatric nephrology outpatient clinic were evaluated retrospectively. Two hundred and fifty babies with AHN (196 males and 54 females) included in our study. Babies with and without abnormality were compared and etiological causes and treatment modalities of babies with AHN were investigated in the postnatal follow-up.
Results: Despite no abnormality detected in 144 (57.6) AHN patients, 106 babies (42.4%) had urinary system abnormality in the postnatal US. As the underlying anomalies, ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) was the most common in 67 kidneys (63.2%); vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) was found in 29 kidneys (%27.3), ureterovesical junction obstruction (UVJO) in 5 kidneys (4.7%) and posterior urethral valve (PUV) in 3 kidneys (2.8%).
Conclusion: Evaluation of babies with AHN starting from postnatal first week will provide early diagnosis of urinary system pathologies and early treatment of babies diagnosed with obstructive pathology.
