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: To investigate the advantages of using Ureteral Access Sheat (UAS) with semirigid ureterorenoscopy in patients with impacted ureteral stones.
Materials and Methods: One hundred and 22 adult patients that presented to our clinic with the complaint of impacted stones in the middle and upper parts of the ureter and were scheduled for surgical treatment. The procedure was performed without UAS in control group and using UAS in study group.
Results: No significant difference was found between the two groups in terms of age, gender, stone disease history, presentation complaint, stone side, size, density and localization, degree of renal hydronephrosis, complications and length of hospital stay. Stone migration, operation time, duration of fluoroscopy, and postoperative additional surgical intervention rates were significantly lower in the UAS group [26.2% (n = 16) vs 11.5% (n = 7), p = 0.037; 35.46 ± 5.3 min vs 25.56 ± 4.2 min, p 0.001, 5.50 ± 0.86 sec vs 3.24 ± 0.69 sec, p 0.001; and 19.7% (n = 12) vs 6.6% (n = 4), p = 0.032, respectively]. The operation was successful in 48 (78.7%) patients in the control group and 57 (93.4%) in the UAS group, with a statistically significant difference (p = 0.019).
Conclusion: The use of UAS in the treatment of middle-upper impacted ureteral stones presents as an advantageous method due to the shorter operation time and lower rates of intraoperative stone migration and high success rates of the operation.
