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: Dysfunction and impairment of many organs occur in chronic congestive heart failure due to ischemia and stasis. Chronic congestive heart failure is frequently accompanied by erectile dysfunction since the two conditions have many etiologic factors in common. Our aim in the study was to investigate the potential relationship between ProNT BNP levels, which show the severity of cardiac failure, and erectile dysfunction in patients with an ejection fraction of 30-40%.
Materials and Methods: The study included 72 male patients followed-up for chronic congestive heart failure. for whom erectile dysfunction was investigated. International Erectile Function Index-5 (IIEF-5) questionnaire was questioned to the patients to evaluate erectile function.
Results: The mean age, total testosterone and lipids (low and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol triglyceride) levels did not significantly differ between the groups (P > 0.05). The mean ProNT BNP levels belonging to all subgroups showed statistically significant differences and correlated with the severity of erectile dysfunction according to the Kruskal-Wallis test (p0.001).
Conclusions: In patients with chronic congestive heart failure, ProNT BNP was higher, and the severity of erectile disfunction was similarly increased.

Keywords: Chronic congestive heart failure; erectile dysfunction; ProNT BNP
