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 purpose of this study was to compare different surgical methods; hemi-laminectomy versus facet protective total laminectomy in recurrence lumbar discal hernia(rLDH) patients.
Materials and Methods: The patients were categorized into 2 groups:34 patients underwent total laminectomy formed the group 1, and 31 patients underwent hemi-laminectomy formed group 2. Patients were compared in terms of age, sex, body mass index(BMI), duration of surgery, length of hospital stay and complications. After 3 years, visual analogue scale for leg and back pain(VASlp,bp), oswestry disability index(ODI) scores and presence of spinal instability were evaluated.
Results: There was no significiantly differences about age, sex, BMI, operation segment, mean operative time and length of hospital stay. Significant improvement was observed in both groups in terms of VAS and ODI values. Dural tear was occurred in 8 patients in group 1 and 1 patient in group 2. Superficial wound infection was seen in 1 patient in group 2. Postop spinal instability was observed in 1 patient in group 2.
Conclusion: Total laminectomy increased the duration of the operation, but significantly reduced the complication rates. In recurrent disc hernias facet protective total laminectomy may be used at especially in patients without evidence of spinal instability.

 

Keywords: Hemilaminectomy; recurrent disc; total laminectomy
