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 extension of the maxillary sinus is an important issue for fixed orthodontic treatments and maxillofacial surgery. The aim of this study is to investigate the dimensions and volume of the maxillary sinus in different skeletal classes and, also the effect on the anteroposterior growth pattern of the maxilla.
Materials and Methods: The cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images of 48 patients were obtained from the archive of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology. The CBCT images were taken prior to orthognathic surgery for the surgical planning of all patients. According to the sagittal skeletal position of the maxilla, the patients were divided into three groups: normal maxilla group, retrognathic maxilla group and, prognathic maxilla group. Dimensional and volumetric measurements of the maxillary sinus were performed by the same oral and maxillofacial radiologist.
Results: Although no statistical difference was observed between different skeletal groups regarding the maxillary sinus dimensions and volume, the results did show that there was an inverse and statistically significant correlation between the left maxillary sinus width and age (p0.05). There was a statistically significant difference between males and females for the width, height, and depth of right maxillary sinus, the right maxillary sinus volume, the height and depth of left maxillary sinus.
Conclusion: In conclusion, for orthodontists and maxillofacial surgeons, the dimensional and volumetric measurements performed by CBCT act as a pathfinder role in the insertion of miniscrews, orthodontic tooth movement through the maxillary sinus, and the orthognathic surgeries such as Le Fort osteotomies.

Keywords: Maxillary sinus volume; maxillary sinus; orthognathic surgery; three-dimensional analysis
