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: Upper lumbar disc hernias are disc hernias located at the L1–L2, L2–L3, and L3–L4 levels. Upper lumbar disc hernias make up approximately 5% of herniated lumbar discs. The etiology of upper lumbar disc hernias is unclear. We investigated the relationship between hemogram values, sedimentation, C-reactive protein values and upper lumbar disc hernias.
Materials and Methods: Patients were divided into three groups: Group 1 (61 patients with upper lumbar disc hernias), Group 2 (96 patients with lower level lumbar disc hernias), and Group 3 (40 patients without disc hernias). Gender, age, serum hemogram parameters, including white blood cell, lymphocyte, neutrophil, monocyte, mean platelets volume, plateletss, red cell distribution width, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelets-to-lymphocyte ratio, sedimentation and C-reactive protein values were obtained from the system and recorded. Patients; Acute pain ( 3 months) was evaluated.
Results: The group with upper lumbar disc hernias (Group 1) had the highest mean age; there were also statistically significant differences between Group 1 and Group 2 and between Group 2 and Group 3 in terms of age (p 0.05 and p = 0.021, respectively). There were no significant differences between groups in terms of gender, hemogram parameters, sedimentation and C-reactive protein values, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio or platelets-to-lymphocyte ratio. Groups were also evaluated for acute, subacute and chronic pain, and there were no significant differences between groups.
Conclusion: We concluded that hemogram parameters (white blood cell count, lymphocyte count, neutrophil count, monocytes, red cell distribution width, mean platelets volume and platelets count), sedimentation and C-reactive protein values, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio and platelets-to-lymphocyte ratio are not indicators for diagnosis of upper lumbar disc hernias.

Keywords: Hemogram parameters; neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio; platelets-to-lymphocyte ratio; upper lumbar disc hernias
