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: A coronary artery may partly become a half or one diameter larger than an adjoining normal one as observed on angiograms, which is called coronary artery ectasia (CAE). There is strong evidence that oxidative stress and inflammation may contribute to the CAE pathophysiology, potentially due to higher fructose intake. Our study aims to determine the effects of the amount of fructose consumed on isolated CAE.
Material and Methods: The study group consists of the patients with stable angina pectoris who had coronary angiography (CAG) reports dated from December 2018 to April 2019. Based on these reports, sampling was made as follow: the patient or CAE group of 50 patients also with isolated CAE and the control group of 50 patients with normal coronary flow pattern (NCF). A comparative analysis was performed using the exact data of both groups including nutrient consumption.
Results: The patient group with higher high-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels (p = 0.029), greater platelet count (p = 0.015), and increased hypertension rate (p = 0.012) were observed to have higher energy in total (p = 0.008), carbohydrate (p = 0.003), and fructose intake (p0.001). Multivariable logistic regression analyses demonstrated that rising Hs-CRP levels (p = 0.031), greater platelet count (p = 0.017), higher fructose intake (p = 0.029), and increased hypertension (p = 0.032) were individually associated with CAE.
Conclusion: In the CAE group higher fructose consumption was observed and thus determined to potentially contribute to the CAE pathophysiology.

Keywords: Atherosclerosis; Coronary artery ectasia; fructose consumption
