Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Aim: The gold standard treatment of end-stage renal failure is kidney transplantation. In western countries, more than 80% of kidney transplants are cadaveric transplants, in Turkey, this ratio is below 25% due to insufficient cadaveric organ supply. In this study, we aimed to give a general assessment of cadaveric kidney transplant of patients on the waiting list of Istanbul University Medical Faculty General Surgery Organ Transplantation Unit.
Material and Methods: Patients waiting for transplantation for a cadaveric kidney on National Organ Waiting List have been evaluated for demographic data, mean duration of dialysis, concomitant diseases, dialysis type, blood groups, end-stage renal failure etiologies, additional diseases that developed during kidney transplant waiting period, and their final status.
Results: Two hundred and forty-four patients were included in the study. There were 122 female and 122 male. The median age was 52 (2-77) years. The most common etiology of renal failure was hypertensive nephrosclerosis. The median waiting time was 89 months (13-390). Though there was no difference between female and male patients according to median age, height and BMI, there was a significant difference according to waiting duration (F/M 113/75 months, p 0,017). In the last 1 year, 13 patients died while they were waiting for a kidney transplant and 17 patients lost their chance of kidney transplant due to developing diseases.
Conclusion: To increase Turkey’s organ transplantation and cadaveric transplant donation on the waiting list we need to develop donation policy for a shorter period of dialysis and to ensure that patients receive transplantation earlier.
Keywords: Dialysis period; kidney transplantation; cadaveric waiting list.
