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: Flexible bronchoscope is widely used by pediatric pulmonologists as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. The objective of this study was to present our anesthesia experience in pediatric flexible bronchoscopy in which airway management was provided with laryngeal mask airway (LMA) and the complications developed.
Material and Methods: This study was conducted in children aged between 2-15 years who underwent bronchoscopy for diagnosis and/or treatment between January 2017 and November 2018. Patients’ demographic data, diagnosis, anesthesia and airway management were recorded from the patient files. Times of anesthesia, operation and recovery were recorded. Complications during the procedure, awakening and recovery were recorded. Patients’ sore throat and hoarseness during resting and swallowing were recorded.
Results: This study included 31 patients whose airway management was provided with LMA. The mean age was 8.58±4.14 years. Persistent cough was the most common indication for bronchoscopy (35.5%). Anesthesia time was 15.46±10.99 minutes, bronchoscopy time 12.87±10.57, awakening time 16.38±4.53 minutes, and recovery time 23.32±10.24 minutes. The most common complication was cough (45.2%). Sore throats of the patients were observed as mild and moderate at the 0th and 2th hours. Both resting and swallowing sore throats were observed as mild at the 4th hour, while no sore throat was seen in any patient at the 12th hour. Hoarseness was observed at mild level in 4 patients (12.9%) at the 0th hour.
Conclusion: Providing airway with LMA in pediatric flexible bronchoscopy applications offers a safe anesthetic management, and it has a low rate of complications.
Keywords: Flexible bronchoscopy; pediatric bronchoscopy; laryngeal mask airway.
