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: To compare the long-term effects of phacoemulsification surgery on intraocular pressure (IOP) in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXG) patients.
Material and Methods: This is a retrospective-comparative study. The data of the patients who underwent phacoemulsification surgery by the same surgeon between 2010 and 2016 and followed up more than 24 months postoperatively were collected. While group 1 consisted of 24 patients with POAG group 2 consisted of 16 patients with PXG. Preoperative, postoperative 1st day, 1st, 12th, 18th, 24th, 36th and 48th months IOP and best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) were enrolled.
Results: The mean follow-up time of group 1 was 44.17 ± 17.8 months and 43.13 ± 19.4 months for group 2 (p= 0.86). There was no statistically significant difference between the groups in the preoperative, postoperative 1st day, 1st, 12th, 18th, 36th and 48th months IOP (p>0.05). There was a statistically significant difference for the IOP value measured postoperative 24th month between the groups (p= 0.005). There was a statistically significant difference between preoperative and postoperative 1st, 12nd months IOP measurements in group 1 (p= 0.02; p= 0.009, respectively). There was a statistically significant difference between preoperative and postoperative 24th months IOP measurements in group 2 (p=0.01).
Conclusion: Although phacoemulsification surgery may cause an increase (14-19 %) in IOP early postoperative period in eyes with POAG and PXG, may provide a modest level decreases (19-18 %) in the long term.
