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: Pancreaticoduodenectomy is a challenging procedure used primarily for the treatment of pancreatic head cancers. The aim of this study was to share early outcomes of the first pancreaticoduodenectomy operations performed by our surgery team after completing a gastroenterological surgery and surgical oncology fellowship program.
Material and Methods: Patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy by the same surgical team between November 2015 and August 2018 were retrospectively analyzed. The patients’ demographic data, diagnoses, tumor characteristics, postoperative complications, mortality, and clinical findings during follow-up were recorded.
Results: A total of 35 patients (21 men and 14 women) with a mean age of 65.6±18.1 years were included in the study. Mean length of hospital stay was 16.8±7.3 days. Postoperative pancreatic fistula was observed in 5 patients. Postoperative hemorrhage occurred in 3 patients and delayed gastric emptying (DGE) in 2 patients. Three patients died in the early postoperative period. Mean follow-up time of the remaining 32 patients was 22.9±8.4 months.
Conclusion: Our experience demonstrates that pancreaticoduodenectomy can be performed with acceptable outcomes after fellowship training that includes pancreatic surgery.
Keywords: Whipple; pancreaticoduodenectomy; initial experience.
