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: The medical records of 68 patients diagnosed with severe ACC and treated with PC at Başkent University Faculty of Medicine, General Surgery Clinic between January 2011 and January 2018 were retrospectively analyzed.
Results: Among patients who underwent PC for severe ACC at our clinic, 39 (57.4%) were male. Their mean age was 71.7 (28-94) years. All patients had pain; 13 (19.1%) patients had nausea-vomiting; 8 (11.8%) had had fever. The mean time from symptom onset to hospital admission was 6.2 (1-30) days; the mean time from admission to PC placement was 2.1 (1-9) days. Twelve (17.6%) patients had minor complications due to cholecystostomy catheter. Twenty seven (39.7%) patients underwent cholecystectomy with a mean of 83.1 (20-705) days after cholecystostomy placement. Seventeen of these patients underwent laparoscopic surgery and 3 of them converted to open surgery. In 5 of 41 patients who did not undergo cholecystectomy, AC recurrence developed (12.2%) and PC was inserted again. Five (7.4%) patients died.
Conclusion: Percutaneous cholecystostomy catheter is an effective treatment to control inflammation until cholecystectomy among high-risk patients diagnosed with severe cholecystitis and may be a definitive therapy for patients unable to undergo surgery.

Keywords: Acute cholecystitis; percutaneous drainage; cholecystostomy
