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: Epistaxis is a common condition in humans, particularly in patients with hypertension, and is one of the most common presenting symptoms in ear, nose, and throat emergency consultation. The present study aimed to examine the treatment and hospitalization characteristics of the patients who presented with epistaxis in Aksaray city and to propose an optimized and updated protocol.
Material and Methods: The present study retrospectively evaluated 758 patients who presented with epistaxis to the Training and Research Hospital in Aksaray between January 2016 and February 2020. The patients were analyzed in terms of age, sex, seasonal characteristics, hospitalization rates, pathogenesis of epistaxis, sites of bleeding, and treatments.
Results: The study included 349 females (46.1%) and 409 males (53.9%); mean patient age was 60.9 ± 9.3 years (range: 3–89 years). The most common comorbidity was hypertension (47.3%), and the most common site of bleeding was the anterior region including the Kiesselbach’s plexus (88.2%). Nasal packing (58.5%) and electrocauterization (29.9%) were performed in most cases. The treatment success was defined as no instance of re-visit by the patients to the hospital due to nasal bleeding within 24 h after the procedure; the treatment was successful in 698 patients (92.1%).
Conclusion: Most cases of epistaxis are successfully treated using endoscopic electrocauterization on an outpatient basis. Hospitalization is indicated if surgical intervention, posterior packing, or embolization is required and if deterioration of general condition is observed. The present study proposes an updated protocol optimized for the management of epistaxis.
