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 prognostic role of lactate for early mortality in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) submitted to primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography (PTCA) is not elucidated clearly. This study was conducted with patients that presented to the emergency department (ED) with STEMI and underwent PTCA to investigate whether the changes in lactate values from ED admission to 24 hours after PTCA affected mortality.
Material and Methods: This prospective observational study on 143 patients with STEMI was conducted at emergency service and tertiary-level cardiology clinic in a public university hospital. The documentation for each patient included detailed information on demographics, type of myocardial infarction according to electrocardiography and PTCA results, duration of hospital stay, vital signs, laboratory findings on admission, lactate levels 24 hours after PTCA, and outcome (hospital discharge or death).
Results: The lactate values are higher in non-surviving groups measured 24 hours after PTCA (P 0.001). The differences in the lactate levels from the time of admission to 24 hours after PTCA were significantly lower in the non-surviving group (P 0.001).
Conclusion: Among patients presenting to the ED with STEMI, a high lactate level is associated with mortality. Also, the difference between lactate values of the patients after PTCA is associated with the risk of mortality. Therefore, we consider that first lactate levels in ED and last lactate levels after PTCA in patients with STEMI can provide physicians with an insight into the possibility of mortality.
