Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

MD. Prof. Nevzat Erdil

Aim: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the etiologic factors, location and surgical technique for patients with oroantral communications (OAC).
Materials and Methods: A total of 103 patients who had chronic or acute OAC and underwent surgical correction were reviewed retrospectively. The data that was recorded included gender, age, fistula location, fistula size, duration of the fistula, etiology, treatment modality, and any related complications.
Results: Extraction of the first molar is associated with the highest incidence (41.75%) of OACS. Complete healing was observed in 68 patients with suturing. Surgical intervention was necessary for 35 patients. The surgical methods used for closure of the OACS included palatal-rotational flaps (PRF) in two patients, buccal flaps (BF) in 18 patients, and Bichat’s buccal fat pad (BFP) in 15 patients. Treatment in 5 cases resulted in failure, and four of these patients received a second treatment. In one case the patient refused any further surgical intervention and was treated with an obturator prosthesis.
Conclusion: Location, size of the defect, and duration of the OAC are essential factors in the choice of technique. Surgeons should choose the correct approach or modify it in accordance with the characteristics of the particular OAC.

Keywords: Buccal fat pad; oroantral fistula; oroantral communications
