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.

Abstract

Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the effect of feeding with own mother’s milk on the incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and other preterm morbidities in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants.
Materials and Methods: VLBW infants followed in our unit were divided into three groups according to their predominantly feeding type such as own mother’s milk group (MM), preterm formula group (PF) and mix fed group (MxF) in the first postnatal month. Groups were compared regarding demographic and clinical features including BDP.
Results: The mean birth week of 117 VLBW infants was 29.3 ± 2.1 weeks and the mean birth weight was 1115 ± 265 g. Seventy seven infants were in the MM group, 17 infants were in the PF group and 23 infants were in the MxF group. There was a significant decrease in BPD incidence in the MM group compared to infants in the PM group (p=0.03). The frequency of necrotizing enterocolitis, late-onset sepsis and severe intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) were found to decrease in the MM group when compared with other infants.Conclusion: The incidence of BPD decreases in VLBW infants fed with their own mother’s milk compared to VLBW infants fed with formula. Also besides feeding with mother’s milk may contribute to a decrease in the frequency of severe IVH.
Keywords: Breastfeeding; bronchopulmonary dysplasia; intracranial hemorrhages; mother’s milk; newborn
