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.

Aim: The aim of the study was to evaluate the success of selective arterial embolization (SAE) treatment in aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC).
Materials and Methods: Patients were referred to our clinic between January 2013 and December 2019 with a pathological diagnosis of ABC were analyzed retrospectively. The study was completed with 18 patients (9 male, 9 female) (7-59 years). Six ABCs were located in the axial skeleton and twelve were in the appendicular skeleton. SAE was done with particulate or liquid embolic agents with a coaxial catheter system. Demographic data of the patients, and the correlation between lesion size and total embolization were analyzed. Complications related to the angiographic procedure were also examined. Patients were considered as complete responders if no recurrence was noticed at two-year follow-up after SAE. Patients with shorter follow-up without recurrence were considered asymptomatic; p 0.05 was considered as statistically significant.
Results: In this study population, a single embolization was performed in ten patients (55.56%), two consecutive embolizations in six patients (33.33%), and three consecutive embolizations in two patients (11.11%). A low correlation was observed between embolization numbers and lesion sizes (k= 0.35). The mean follow-up period of the patients who underwent SAE was 33.76 months (6-61 months). The treatment response was achieved in 88.9% (n: 16) of the patients who received SAE. Surgery was performed in two patients (11.1%) due to recurrence. There were no major complications recorded such as skin necrosis or paresthesia.
Conclusion: Due to its low complication rates, easy reproducibility, and similar success rate with surgery, SAE is a reliable method for the treatment of ABC.
