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: Distal symmetric polyneuropathy is a common complication causing foot ulcers and amputations in diabetic patients. The Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument (MNSI) is one of the screening methods of diabetic neuropathy, which also provides a comprehensive foot evaluation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the validation, cross-cultural adaptation, and reliability of Turkish Version of the MNSI in the Eastern Anatolia region of Turkey.
Materials and Methods: One hundred twenty-six patients with diabetes mellitus were randomly assigned to the study. The questionnaire section of the MNSI was completed by the patients, and the physical examination section was evaluated by health professionals. Nerve conduction studies were performed to 123 patients as the gold standard for diabetic neuropathy. All nerve conduction studies and patients were evaluated by a neurologist.
Results: The inter-rater agreement of questionnaire section [ICC: 0.957 (95% CI: 0.940-0.969), p0.001] and physical examination section [ICC: 0.917 (95% CI: 0.884-0.941), p0.001] were excellent. The intra-rater agreement of the questionnaire section [ICC: 0.880 (95% CI: 0.833-0.914), p0.001] and physical examination section [ICC: 0.920 (95% Cl: 0.889-0.943), p0.001] showed a high stability. The area under curve (AUC) for the questionnaire section and physical examination section of the MNSI were 0.588 (p=0.205) and 0.880 (p3, with the sensitivity of 76.2%, specificity of 91.2%, positive predictive value of 64%, negative predictive value of 94.9%.
Conclusion: The physical examination section of Turkish version of the MNSI is valid and reliable.
