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: Trigger finger is a common orthopedic problem causing pain and could restrsict daily activities. Surgical intervention can be done via open or percutaneously. There is not much data about minor complications in literature. In this study, we reported our results and complications of percutaneous release (PR) of trigger thumb.
Material and Methods: Retrospective data of patients treated for trigger thumb with PR between September 2017 and January 2019 were reviewed. Age, gender, affected side, preoperative Quinnell grade of triggering; previous history of steroid injection and history of medical diseases (e.g. diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis) were recorded.
Results: Thirty thumb of 28 patients who met the inclusion criteria treated with PR for trigger thumb included in the study. Mean age of patients was 53.7 ±9.95 months (range 36-73). Twenty (71%) of patients were female, 8 (29%) were male. Right hand was dominant side in all patients. Right thumb was affected in 18 (64%) patients, left thumb in 8 (29%) and 2 (7%) were bilateral. Due to Quinnell grading system 9 (32%) patients were grade 2 and 19 (68%) were grade 3. Twenty (71%) of patients had previous history of steroid injection. There were 5 complications in our patients. One recurrence of triggering and 4 ecchymosis and edema have been reported.
Conclusion: Percutaneous release of trigger thumb is safe and reliable technique with low complication rate. To prevent complication surgeon should be careful during the procedure and should well inform patient what to do after procedure.
