Muscle weakness is commonly among chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Muscle mitochondrial dysfunction and decreased pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) activity occur in CKD animals but have not been con...
Dysphagia is a common problem after stroke that is often associated with tongue weakness. However, the physiological mechanisms of post-stroke tongue muscle weakness and optimal treatments have not be...
Whether thymectomy is beneficial in elderly patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) is unclear. Thus, we assessed whether conducting thymectomy in MG patients aged ≥ 50 years is beneficial. This r...
Minimally invasive thymectomy (MIT) has demonstrated improved short-term outcomes compared with open thymectomy (OT). While adoption of MIT for thymoma is increasing, oncologic outcomes have not been ...
The trans-subxiphoid thoracoscopic approach is an ideal method for thoracoscopic thymectomy. We introduce a simple method to establish the subxiphoid approach. We made an incision and inserted a homem...
Objective: To comparatively analyze long-term results and complications of transcervical (TCT) and transsternal thymectomy (TST) in a randomized controlled trial with a mean follow-up of t...
ICU acquired muscle weakness is a significant problem in patients recovering from critical illness. This trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of a drug in improving muscle weakness ...
MYASTHENIA GRAVIS (MG) is an autoimmune disease characterized by varying degrees of muscle weakness and fatigability worsened with exertion and relieved with rest。Thymectomy plays an imp...
Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by muscle weakness and fatigue. The role of the thymus in MG has been suggested by the evidence that 10% to 15% of pat...
Extended thymectomy is the main treatment for thymoma and other anterior mediastinal diseases. Video-assisted thoracic surgery(VATS) plays an important role in the surgery of extended thym...
A vague complaint of debility, fatigue, or exhaustion attributable to weakness of various muscles. The weakness can be characterized as subacute or chronic, often progressive, and is a manifestation of many muscle and neuromuscular diseases. (From Wyngaarden et al., Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p2251)
A symptom complex characterized by pain and weakness in SKELETAL MUSCLE group associated with exercise, such as leg pain and weakness brought on by walking. Such muscle limpness disappears after a brief rest and is often relates to arterial STENOSIS; muscle ISCHEMIA; and accumulation of LACTATE.
A heterogeneous group of inherited MYOPATHIES, characterized by wasting and weakness of the SKELETAL MUSCLE. They are categorized by the sites of MUSCLE WEAKNESS; AGE OF ONSET; and INHERITANCE PATTERNS.
A general term encompassing lower MOTOR NEURON DISEASE; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; and certain MUSCULAR DISEASES. Manifestations include MUSCLE WEAKNESS; FASCICULATION; muscle ATROPHY; SPASM; MYOKYMIA; MUSCLE HYPERTONIA, myalgias, and MUSCLE HYPOTONIA.
A condition characterized by transient weakness or paralysis of somatic musculature triggered by an emotional stimulus or physical exertion. Cataplexy is frequently associated with NARCOLEPSY. During a cataplectic attack, there is a marked reduction in muscle tone similar to the normal physiologic hypotonia that accompanies rapid eye movement sleep (SLEEP, REM).
