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: Deviation of the nasal septum, which can cause upper respiratory tract obstruction and systemic hypoxia, may also affect the eye. The aim of this study was to detect changes in posterior segment parameters of the eye in patients with nasal septal deviation.
Material and Methods: The study included 50 patients with nasal septal deviation, and a control group of 30 healthy subjects with no nasal septal deviation. Choroidal thickness, central macular thickness and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness were measured with Optical Coherence Tomography.
Results: Choroidal thickness was significantly lower in patients with severe nasal septal deviation compared to the control group. (p=0.001) There is no statistically significant change in other measurements.
Conclusion: The study results suggest that marked nasal septal deviation may lead to significant hypoxia and sympathetic activation, resulting in deterioration of the choroidal blood flow and consequent choroidal thickening.

Keywords: Choroidal thickness; EDI-OCT; nasal septal deviation; NOSE score; sleep-disordered breathing
