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: Adenoid vegetation often causes open-mouth sleeping, snoring, breathing difficulties and it is also associated with many inflammatory diseases. In the treatment, adenoidectomy is performed to get rid of these symptoms and to prevent the future complications. In recent years, it has been reported that the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a prognostic factor in various diseases. Researches on the basophil-to-lymphocyte (BLR) ratio have been increasing. The aim of our study is to compare NLR and BLR before and after adenoidectomy and to determine whether these markers can be used as prognostic factors.
Material and Methods: The patients 2 to16 years old who underwent adenoidectomy in our clinic from January 2016 to June 2019 were included in our study. The postoperative hospital application data of them were analyzed. Routine hemograms for surgery and postoperative hemograms (except inflammatory conditions) were used for calculating the NLR and BLR.
Results: One hundred and twelve patients were included in the study. When the preoperative and postoperative NLR values (1.3335 and 1.1152, respectively) were compared, there was a statistically significant decrease in the postoperative period (p = 0.02). However, when the BLR values were compared preoperatively and postoperatively (0.0054 and 0.0050, respectively), there was no statistically significant difference in the postoperative period (p = 0.59).
Conclusion: There are very few studies in the literature that evaluates NLR before and after adenoidectomy. To our knowledge, our research is the first study to evaluate BLR before and after adenoidectomy. In contrast to the literature, a significant difference in NLR was found out in our study. It has been determined that NLR can be used as a prognostic marker in adenoidectomy. More researches are needed for BLR in this area.

Keywords: Adenoidectomy; basophil-to-lymphocyte ratio; neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio
