Bezmialem Science 2020;8(2):0-0

Dear Readers,

The year 2020 has come off with a challenging start for the world and our country. We’re with you with our second issue in these days we’re dealing with COVID-19, which started in China and spread all over the world. We have encountered many sad events in the world and in our country, and we are still in a crisis where we do not know when it will end. Hail to the doctors, nurses and all the health workers who have worked selflessly in this field. In the meantime, I offer my deepest condolences for the doctors and scientists we have lost all over the world. They are values we have lost in this war and we will not forget them. I would like to thank our editorial board and our publishing house for their efforts to publish our journal even in these difficult days.

In this issue we are with you with new topics. We have chosen the cover picture of this issue from the original article by ÖZTÜRK et al., entitled “Surgical Treatment of alveolar Soft part Sarcoma of the extreme: Results of at Least 5 years of Follow-up”.

In this issue; the article entitled “Comparison of Intravenous, Intra-articular, and Combined Tranexamic Acid Use in Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty without a Tourniquet and a Drain” by UZER et al., the article entitled “A Rabbit Model of Avascular Necrosis of Femoral Head Using Surgical Trauma and Systemic Steroids’’ by OZBEN et al., and the article entitled ‘‘Comparison of the Role of Endocan With Other Laboratory Tests in Diagnosis of Acute and Perforated Appendicitis in Children’’ CEVIZCI et al. are the articles that are prominent.

We have set the subject of our next supplement as COVID. If you have studies or reviews about COVID, we expect you to share them with us.

I hope that we will have good days with health and peace in our country and the world.

Kindest regards

Prof. Dr. Adem AKCAKAYA
