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: Inflammatory markers that may be associated with on the prognosis of acute ischemic stroke (IS) such as C-reactive protein/albumin ratio, neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio, albumin, red blood cell distribution width (RDW) have been investigated in the recent years. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the effects of all these inflammatory markers on in-hospital mortality and to determine the mortality rates due to cerebral artery occlusion in patients with acute IS.
Materials and Methods: Patients hospitalized in our hospital with a diagnosis of acute IS between April 2014 and August 2018 were retrospectively analyzed. Logistic regression analysis was used to investigate the prognostic factors in IS. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was performed to calculate the cut-off values and evaluate the predictive values of variables.
Results: 344 patients, including 267 patients who were alive and 77 patients who died at the hospital, were included in the study. The infarcts that had the highest mortality rate were massive infarcts in the internal carotid artery area (75%), middle cerebral artery-M1 segment infarctions (62.5%) and total basilar artery infarcts (40%). According to the multivariate logistic regression model, only RDW-SD and albumin were found to be poor prognostic factors of IS (p=0.005 and p=0.021). Area under the ROC curve was as follows: RDW-SD 0.613 (95% CI, 0.53-0.69).
Conclusions: High RDW-SD and low albumin levels at admission are independent poor prognostic factors of acute IS. Multicenter studies conducted with large patient populations are necessary to determine vascular mortality rates in patients with IS.

Keywords: Albumin; C-reactive protein/albumin ratio; ischemic stroke; neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio; red blood cell distribution width; vascular mortality rates
