    In publication or citation search, the name similarities of the authors, typographical errors and institutional changes can cause confusion. To prevent this, researchers need to obtain a descriptive ID. ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a researcher-specific international URI with a 16-digit number. You can register for free for individual ORCID at http://orcid.org. Please indicate the ORCID number of all authors when submitting your article.

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: Current data regarding the relation between the Frontal QRS-T (FQRST) angle and the atherosclerotic burden is limited. This study purposed to investigate the relation between FQRST angle and the Syntax (SX) score in subjects presenting with STEMI.
Material and Methods: Forty-nine patients who were admitted to the coronary care unit of a tertiary-care hospital for acute STEMI and underwent successful revascularization of the infarct related artery were included in this retrospective analysis. FQRST angle, QTc, and T peak- T end (TpTe) intervals were obtained from the presenting electrocardiogram (ECG). ECG was repeated 30 minutes after revascularization. The SX score was calculated using dedicated software. The study population was then divided into 3 tertiles based on the SYNTAX trial results as follows: SX score ≤ 22 (Low SX score, n=34), SX score ≥ 23 and 33 (Intermediate SX score, n=8), and those with an SX score ≥ 33(High SX score, n=7).
Results: Median FQRST angle of the subjects with an SX score ≥ 33 was significantly wider than those with an SX score 22 had a longer TpTe interval than those with an SX score ≤ 22 points. SX score was significantly correlated with the FQRST angle (r=0.691, p 0.001) and TpTe interval (r=0.579, p 0.001).
Conclusion: FQRST angle obtained from the admission surface ECG of the subjects with acute STEMI might reflect the extent and severity of the CAD, as demonstrated by the SX score. Moreover, FQRST angle may be useful in determination of the success of the revascularization in STEMI subjects.

Keywords: Frontal QRS-T angle; revascularization; ST segment elevation myocardial infarction; SYNTAX score
