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: Chronic liver disease is one of the most important public health problems in both developed and developing countries. It has been reported that testicular atrophy may occur in these patients. The aim of this study is to demonstrate changes in testicular structure and elasticity due to hypogonadism secondary to chronic liver disease (CLD) by shear wave elastography (SWE).
Material and Methods: Eighteen patients aged 22-50 years were included in the study. The control group consisted of 16 participants aged 17-52 years. In all patients and in the control group; first scrotal gray scale and doppler US examination were performed to determine the presence of focal lesions and structural anomalies in both testicles, then the mean testicular shear wave velocity values (SWVV) in the parenchyma was calculated. Testicular volumes and testicular arterial flow indices (Vmax, RI) were recorded.
Results: The results of 34 participants (patient and control groups) were examined; There was no significant difference between volumetric measurements, flow indices and SWVQ values between the two groups. In addition, right testicular arterial Vmax values were lower in the patient group than in the control group (p 0.005).
Conclusion: A decrease in right testicular arterial Vmax indicates that CLD may play an acceptable role in the development of testicular atrophy. However, the duration of the disease and the drugs used can have an impact on our findings. Prospective studies with larger cohorts may be useful in revealing this relationship.

Keywords: Chronic liver disease; shear wave elastography; testicular atrophy

Annals of Medical Research is the scientific official journal of the Inonu University Faculty of Medicine. It is published monthly. The essential aim of the Annals of Medical Research is to publish scientifically high quality clinical and experimental research articles on fields of medicine which can contribute to the literature data. In addition, review articles, case reports, editorials, letters to the editors and manuscripts on publication ethics and medical history, which can contribute to the education and practices of physicians and health sector professionals within the scope of the journal’s target audience and which can increase the level of scientific communication between the authors and readers, are included in the scope of the journal.
