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 present study aims to investigate the effects of seizure or epilepsy formation on mortality and morbidity in epileptic patients after craniectomy.
Material and Methods: The patients were divided into the following groups: Group 1, those who had no seizures, but were routinely treated with 3x100 mg of epanutin daily (n=6), Group 2, those who had at least one or multiple seizures and were initiated a second antiepileptic drug in addition to 3x100 mg of epanutin daily (n=13), and Group 3, those who had multiple seizures and who were sedated or narcotized in addition to being treated with 3x100 mg of epanutin daily (n=7). All patients underwent decompressive craniectomy within a maximum period of 48 hours and their characteristics such as age, gender, localization of infarct, hemiplegia, monoplegia, operation time, Glasgow coma and outcome scales were recorded.
Results: According to the Glasgow Outcome Scale, 1 patient in Group 1, 8 patients in Group 2 and 6 patients in Group 3 died and there was a significant increase in patient losses in Group 2 and Group 3 compared to Group 1 (p0.05). 10 patients continued to live their lives with the support of home-care services and 2 patients with other forms of help.
Conclusion: It was seen that there is a high incidence of seizure and epilepsy in MMCA infarcts after decompressive craniectomy and this significantly increased mortality or dysfunctional recovery if epilepsy could not be brought under control.

Keywords: Decompressive craniectomy; epilepsy; glasgow coma scale; MMCA infarction, mortality
