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: Several studies have found a correlation between coronary slow flow (CSF) and low serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels or high serum uric acid levels. The present study aimed to evaluate whether serum uric acid to HDL-C ratio predicts CSF.
Material and Methods: The experimental (CSF) group included 91 patients (40 females, 51 males, mean age: 52±9) who had angiographically normal coronary arteries but had slow flow in one or more coronary arteries. The control group included 96 patients (57 females, 39 males, mean age: 50±9) with normal coronary anatomy and without slow flow. The uric acid to HDL-C ratio was calculated for the two groups and compared.
Results: The HDL-C levels of the CSF group (37±8 mg/dL) were significantly lower compared to the controls (49±10 mg/dL, p0.001), whereas serum uric acid levels (5.33±0.97 mg/dL) and uric acid to HDL-C ratio (0.14±0.03) of the CSF group were significantly higher compared to the controls (4.37±0.88 mg/dL and 0.09±0.02, p0.001 and p4.64 mg/dL uric acid and >0.119 % uric acid to HDL-C ratio had a sensitivity of 81% and 85% and specificity of 76% and 80% for determination of CSF, respectively (AUC=0.850, 95% CI: 0.792 - 0.908 and AUC=0.890, 95% CI: 0.841 - 0.940,respectively).Spearman's correlation test has been performed and a significant positive correlation has been detected between the uric acid to HDL-C ratio and the mean thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) frame count (r=0.62, p0.001).
Conclusion: In this study, higher uric acid to HDL-C ratio values of the CSF group was found compared to the control group. Furthermore, uric acid to HDL-C ratio performed better than serum uric acid levels in predicting CSF.

Annals of Medical Research is the scientific official journal of the Inonu University Faculty of Medicine. It is published monthly. The essential aim of the Annals of Medical Research is to publish scientifically high quality clinical and experimental research articles on fields of medicine which can contribute to the literature data. In addition, review articles, case reports, editorials, letters to the editors and manuscripts on publication ethics and medical history, which can contribute to the education and practices of physicians and health sector professionals within the scope of the journal’s target audience and which can increase the level of scientific communication between the authors and readers, are included in the scope of the journal.
