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.

Abstract

Aim: Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a marker of systemic inflammation that correlates with coronary artery disease. The Syntax score is an angiographic tool used in grading the complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD). The aim of this study is that NLR is associated with a greater CAD complexity in patients with stable angina pectoris with chronic total occlusion.
Materials and Methods: A total of 495 patients who underwent coronary angiography and who had stable angina pectoris with chronic total occlusion in at least 1 vessel were included in the study. The syntax score was used to determine coronary complexity.
Results: Patients with CAD were evaluated by grouping according to 2 different criteria as pointed in the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) revascularization guide. When the syntax S is divided into 3 groups (Syntax score 1-22, 23-32,> 32) according to their score values, or 2 groups (Syntax score 1-21 and> 22 or 1-31 and> 31) according to their Syntax score values, NLR was higher in high Syntax score groups than in low groups (p 32) or 2 groups according to Syntax score values (Syntax score 1-21 and >22 or 1-31 and >31) as pointed in ESC revascularization guideline, high Syntax score group having a higher NLR than low group (p0.05). However, when the patients were divided into 3 groups according to the Syntax score, it was seen that there was no statistical difference in terms of NLR values between the high group and the middle group or the middle group and the low group of the Syntax score.
Conclusion: In this study, it has been demonstrated that NLR can be used for the determination of the complexity of the disease in patients with stable angina pectoris with chronic total occlusion. However, in determining the degree of complexity in the patients with stable angina, discrimination of the patients close to each other may not be sufficient.
