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: We aimed to report our surgical experience about cardiac tumors in our hospital
Material and Methods: The study enrolled 25 patients who underwent cardiac surgery for cardiac tumors between June 2009 and June 2019. Baseline clinical features, symptoms of the patients, localizations of the tumors and surgical notes of the patients were recorded.
Results: In 22 of 25 patients, histopathologic result was atrial myxoma. The other three tumors were hibernoma, papillary fibroelastoma and angiosarcoma. Hibernoma was in interatrial septum, papillary fibroelastoma was on subvalvular surface of aortic valve and angiosarcoma was in right atrium invading into right ventricle. We experienced our own recurrence in one patient, also re-operated another patient who underwent the first operation in a different hospital. No death and major complication occurred during post-operative period.
Conclusion: Surgical removal of the cardiac tumors is an effective treatment with low complication and recurrence rates.

Keywords: Cardiac tumor; myxoma; neoplasm; surgery
