Summary of "Rapid improvement of muscle weakness post-thymectomy indicates good long-term neurological outcome in patients with ocular myasthenia gravis."

This study was conducted to evaluate whether post-thymectomy rapid remission of ocular myasthenia gravis (oMG) is a prognostic indicator of good long-term neurological outcome.

Reduced tongue force and functional swallowing changes in a rat model of post stroke dysphagia.

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...

Effect of thymectomy in elderly patients with non-thymomatous generalized myasthenia gravis.

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...

Utilization of Minimally Invasive Thymectomy and Margin Negative Resection for Early Stage Thymoma.

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 ...

A novel and simple method for establishing the subxiphoid approach during thoracoscopic thymectomy.

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...

Variables Predicting Reintubation After Thymectomy in Patients With Myasthenia Gravis

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...

The Curative Effect of Extended Thymectomy Performed Through Subxiphoid-right VATS Approach With Elevation of Sternum

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p396)
