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 published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: Platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio has been used as a determinant factor for coronary artery disease. Since platelet activation is central to the initiation of atherosclerosis, our goal was to evaluate the relationship between platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio and fractional flow reserve (FFR) values in the left anterior descending artery (LAD) with intermediate coronary stenosis.
Material and Methods: The present report encompassed 173 subjects having stable angina pectoris. These subjects were categorized into 2 groups: 91 subjects with a FFR less than or equal to 0.80 and 82 patients with a FFR greater than 0.80. The platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio of each subject was determined from the complete blood count. The two groups were evaluated for differences using a Student's unpaired t-test. A p-value of 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
Results: The average platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio value of subjects with a FFR less than or equal to 0.80 were significantly higher than those with a FFR greater than 0.80 ((115.5±38.0) vs. (103.8±38.9), p=0.04). The correlation between platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio with stenosis degree was significant (r= 0.22, p= 0.003).
Conclusion: Platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio was associated with a FFR measurement of equal or less than to 0.80 in subjects with stable angina pectoris.

Keywords: Fractional flow reserve; Stable angina pectoris; Platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio; Left anterior descending artery
