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: 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
