Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Abstract

Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the effect of previous arthroscopic surgery on total knee arthroplasty outcomes and complication rates.
Material and Methods: This retrospective study included patients who underwent total knee arthroplasty due to grade 4 osteoarthritis, according to the Kellgren-Lawrance classification system in a tertiary hospital, between January 2012 and December 2016. The patients were divided into two groups according to whether or not they had undergone previous knee arthroscopy. The arthroscopic procedure included degenerative meniscus tear subtotal excision and synovectomy. The data of the two groups were compared. Outcome measures were the visual analog scale, McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index, Knee Society scoring system and knee range of motion.
Results: The previous arthroscopy-free group comprised 94 patients (35 males, 59 females), and the previous undergoing arthroscopy group included 73 patients (23 males, 50 females). The mean age of previous arthroscopy-free group was 63.12 ± 2.8 years (range, 57 to 68), and the mean age of previous undergoing arthroscopy group was 62.42 ± 3.9 years (range, 55 to 73). The groups were similar in terms of age, gender, body mass index, follow-up periods, sides, and complications (p > 0.05 for all). In assessments at the end of 4 years, the groups were similar in respect of visual analog scale, McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index, Knee Society scoring system and knee range of motion.
Conclusions: The results of this study showed that clinical outcomes and complications were similar in patients with primary total knee arthroplasty and no previous procedure and those who had previously undergone knee arthroscopy. In the light of these preliminary results, previous knee arthroscopy has no negative effect on the outcomes of total knee arthroplasty and complication rates.

Keywords: Arthroscopic knee surgery; clinical outcomes; primary total knee arthroplasty
