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: Splint use is often recommended following wrist injection patients diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), but there is not any data in the literature pertaining to the impact of splint treatment, used before injection, on the results of local injection treatment. The aim of this study to evaluate whether or not splint use starting before the injection would impact the local injection treatment outcomes.
Materials and methods: Fifty seven patients (57 hands) with CTS and underwent ultrasound-guided injection were included in the study, and patients were divided into two groups in terms of splint use. Median nerve cross-sectional area (MNCSA), pain/numbness by visual analogue scale (VAS), symptoms and functionality by Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire (BCTQ) were investigated before injection and 15 days after injection.
Results: There was significant change over time in MNCSA, VAS, and BTCQ scores in groups. The patients not using splint group had significantly higher percentage change in VAS nighttime score.
Conclusion: Our findings has shown that using neutral wrist splint, starting before and continuing after injection treatment, did not increase the injection treatment efficacy and may actually have negative effect on improvement in VAS nighttime scores.

Keywords: Median nerve; sonography; splinting; steroid injection
