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 evaluate prevalence of cerebral arterial variations in Turkish population and association of the variations with cerebral aneurysms
Materials and Methods: Digital subtraction angiography of 640 consecutive patients between January 2011-December 2013 were evaluated retrospectively. Patients with aneurysms were compared with patients without aneurysm to determine the effect of variations. Comparisons were made using Chi square or Fisher exact test for categorical variables and Student's t test or Mann Whitney U test for continuous variables.
Results: The most common variation in the anterior circulation was hypoplasia of anterior cerebral artery A1 segment and the most common variation in the posterior circulation was fetal origin of the posterior cerebral artery. Hypoplasia and aplasia of the anterior cerebral artery A1 segment was significantly more frequent in patients with anterior communicating artery aneurysms than the control group (p:0.001). Prevalence of azygos anterior cerebral artery variation was higher in distal anterior cerebral artery aneurysms than the control group (p 0.001). There was no association between bihemispheric anterior cerebral artery and anterior communicating artery aneurysms (p = 0.453). Similarly, no significant association of fetal origin of posterior cerebral artery with posterior communicating artery aneurysms was found (p = 0.133).
Conclusion: Prevalence of cerebral arterial variations in this study were compatible with literature. Some variations may play a role in development of aneurysms by alterations in hemodynamics and increasing shear wall stress. Further larger studies are needed to clarify the relation between variations in cerebrovascular structure and aneurysm formation.
