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 It is published monthly.

Aim: An increasing number of patients are undergoing surgical treatment for gallbladder polyps (GPs). As there is still controversy on the subject, it remains unclear whether GPs are the precursors of gallbladder tumors. The aim of this study was to examine the clinicopathological features of patients who had undergone cholecystectomy in our clinic for the treatment of gallbladder polyps.
Material and Methods: A retrospective review was made of the clinicopathological data of patients who underwent cholecystectomy, selected from a group of 2048 patients, who received treatment between 2014-2018.
Results: A total of 79 (3.8%) patients were identified, comprising 50 (63.2%) females and 29 (36.8%) males with a mean age of 43 years (range, 22-81 years). During pre-operative ultrasonography, 60 (75.9%) patients were detected with a single polyp and 19 (23.1%) patients had multiple polyps. When postoperative histology was evaluated, 70 (88.6%) patients had cholesterol polyps, 2 (2.5%) patients had gallbladder stones, 5 (6.3%) patients had papillary adenomas without dysplasia and 1 (1.2%) patient had papillary adenoma with dysplasia, while 1 (1.2%) of patient had gallbladder adenocarcinoma.
Conclusion: According to the results of this study, as gallbladder polyps may be pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions, patients diagnosed with GP should be followed up closely with surgical treatment applied when necessary.
Keywords: Gall bladder polyps; cholecystectomy; gallbladder adenocarcinoma.
