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.

Aim: To evaluate the results of retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) in stones with anomaly in the kidney.
Material and Methods: Between April 2016 and November 2018, the data of 350 patients undergoing retrograde intrarenal surgery due to kidney stones were retrospectively examined.Patients with stones in the kidney with anomalies were recorded. Demographic data, localization of the stone, size, and success and complication rates were reviewed.In the post-operative controls, stones that were 2 mm and below were accepted as stone-free.Postoperative success was evaluated as stone-free at the 1st and 3rd months.
Results: The mean age of the patients was 50.9 ± 15.8 (20-78).RIRS was performed in 29 kidneys with anomalies.Ten patients had horseshoe kidneys, 2 patients had ectopic pelvic kidneys, 13 patients had double collecting system and 4 patients had rotation anomalies.The mean stone size was 16.3 ± 6.1 (8-30) mm. The postoperative 1st and 3rd month stone-free rate was 48.2% and 51.7%, respectively.The complication developed in 4 (13.7%) patients. All of these were minor complications.Second procedure was applied to 14 of the remaining patients.
Conclusion: In the treatment of kidney stones with anomalies, RIRS is reliable with low complication rates, but the patient should be informed about the need for additional procedures due to low stone-free rates.

Keywords: Anomaly kidney; kidney stone; retrograde intrarenal surgery; stone-free
