    In publication or citation search, the name similarities of the authors, typographical errors and institutional changes can cause confusion. To prevent this, researchers need to obtain a descriptive ID. ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a researcher-specific international URI with a 16-digit number.

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: Increased blood glucose concentration and cardiac autonomic nerve dysfunction are associated with an increased risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmia. Tp-e interval, Tp-e/QT, and Tp-e/QTc are novel parameters used to assess ventricular arrhythmogenicity. This study aimed to compare these parameters with the healthy control group in prediabetics.
Materials and Methods: The ECGs of 58 prediabetic patients (29 male, 59.74 ±13.25 years) were examined and matched with the ECGs of 59 healthy controls (28 male, 61.75 ± 12.66 years) that were matched with gender, age and body mass index. From the 12-lead ECG Tp-e and QT intervals were measured and by Bazett's formula QTc was calculated. Tp-e/QT and Tp-e/QTc proportions were also determined.
Results: In prediabetic patients, the mean Tp-e interval was significantly longer than the control group (79.07 ± 8.17 vs 72.03 ± 9.77 ms, respectively; p 0.001). Also in prediabetic, Tp-e/QT and Tp-e/QTc were significantly higher than the controls (respectively 0.21 ± 0.25 vs 0.19 ± 0.03 and 0.19 ± 0.02 vs 0.17 ± 0.02; p 0.001). Other ECG parameters were similar in both groups. HbA1c levels and glucose levels were positively correlated with Tp-e / QT and Tp-e / QTc.
Conclusion: Prediabetes increases the risk of ventricular arrhythmogenesis by increasing the transmural dispersion of repolarization. The addition of Tp-e interval and TP-e / QT measurements to the routine ECG evaluation of prediabetic patients can be used to predict arrhythmia risk.

Keywords: Prediabetes; Tp-e interval; Tp-e/QT ratio; Tp-e/QTc ratio; ventricular arrhythmia
