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: The aim of this study was to analyze the cause of out-toeing gait pattern in children who underwent anatomic reduction and internal fixation for distal tibial physeal injury.
Material and Methods: This IRB-approved, Level IV review study included traumatic distal tibia epiphyseal injury treated surgically at a single institution between 2010 and 2015. Patients were called back to return for additional follow-up. All clinical (foot progression angle-FPA, hip rotations, thigh foot angle-TFA) and radiological (distal tibial measurements) evaluations were done by 2 independent observers to assess inter- and intra-observer reliability using intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC).
Results: There were 38 patients with an average age of 11.4±3.8. There was a non-significant trend noted towards externally in FPA on the injured side. TFA was similar in both extremities (p: 0.56). Hip external rotation was significantly high in injured side, whereas hip internal rotation was similar. Hip external rotation was significantly high.
Conclusion: Anatomic joint reduction is mandatory to prevent growth arrest and to maintain lower extremity alignment. Considering that there is no pathology of the hip and no radiologic signs of mal-alignment of the ankle, we think that hip external rotators may shortened due to post-operative resting position, which was ended up with out-toeing gait pattern on the injured side.

Keywords: Ankle fracture; out-toeing; pediatric fractures; physeal fractures
