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: Limited research has been conducted regarding the symptoms of preoperative anxiety that children exhibit prior to circumcision. The aim of this study is to determine the frequency of preoperative anxiety symptoms in children preparing for circumcision and the associated factors.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study included 62 subjects ranging from ages 2-12. A personal information form, which the research team developed, was used to evaluate the socio-demographic and clinical data of the participants. Symptoms of preoperative anxiety were assessed using the modified Yale Preoperative Anxiety Scale.
Results: The mean age of the participants was 7.37±2.97 and m-YPAS scores were 56±18.10. Increased preoperative anxiety symptoms were observed in 82.3% (n=51) of circumcised children. Subjects who engaged in certain activities prior to admission exhibited significantly lower m-YPAS scores compared to those who did not (p0.05).
Conclusions: The early recognition and management of preoperative anxiety in children expecting circumcision will help clinicians in preventing the potential complications associated with increased preoperative anxiety.

Keywords: Circumcision; children; preoperative anxiety
