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.

Aim: To show midterm results and compare the two methods utilized in pediatric forearm fractures fixation and the risks of radiation.
Material and Methods: We conducted retrospective studies of 62 children and adolescent between the age of 6 to 16 years who were exposed to traumatic forearm fractures and treated with methods of fixation mini open reduction and intramedullary K-wire pinning(group 1) and close reduction and intramedullary elastic nailing(group 2). Patient data included age, gender, the mechanisms of injury, fluoroscopic screening time, dose area product (DAP) value, union time, duration of hospitalization, and complications.
Results: There was a significant difference in radiation exposure and radiation-related cancer risk in group 2 (P0.001). There was no significant difference between the two groups in the first year of surgery compared to union (p: 0.49), complications and Price CT et al criteria (p: 0,57).
Conclusions: If the surgeon's experience is insufficient, the duration of close reduction and intramedullary nailing operation time and the number of fluoroscopic imaging will increase. This will increase the radiation exposure and the risks associated with radiation for the patient and surgical team. In our opinion, surgeons who do not have enough surgical experience should use open reduction technique to avoid using too much fluoroscopic imaging. Orthopedics surgeons must protect himself, his personnel and the patient from radiation exposure.

Keywords: Cancer risk; fluoroscopy; fracture healing; pediatric forearm fractures; radiation risk
