  • Mitral Valve Replacement with Thymectomy in a Patient with Ocular Myasthenia Gravis: Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Heart Surg Forum 2019; 22(5):E340-E342Stiru O, Stefan M, … Iliescu VA
  • Patients diagnosed with ocular myasthenia gravis (MG) and mitral valve disease represent a significant perioperative management problem, especially for the anaesthesiologist, due to complex inter-actions between the disease, drugs to treat the disease, and anaesthetic agents, such as neuromuscu-lar blocking agents (NMBAs). This paper describes the successful management of a 31-year-old female wit…
  • [Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma of the Anterior Mediastinum;Report of a Case]. [Journal Article]
    Kyobu Geka 2019; 72(11):958-961Hosaka Y, Kitahara A, Tsuchida M
  • A 69-year-old man was pointed out the anterior mediastinal mass on chest computed tomography (CT). Since the thymoma was suspected, thymectomy was performed through median sternotomy. The tumor was encapsulated and did not directly invade adjacent organs. The tumor was 8.3×5.3×8.2 cm in size. Histological examination of the resected specimen showed a large mucinous component and a small fibrous c…
  • Thymic small cell carcinoma associated with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome. [Journal Article]
    Ann Thorac Surg 2019Hashimoto S, Hayasaka K, … Shiono S
  • Thymic small cell cancer is a very rare type of thymic epithelial tumor. Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome associated with thymic epithelial tumors. We report an extremely rare case of LEMS associated with thymic small cell carcinoma. A 71-year-old man was referred to our institution for a mediastinal tumor and a 2-month history of ptosis, fatigue, and gai…
  • [Thymectomy]. [Journal Article]
    Kyobu Geka 2019; 72(10):859-863Inoue M, Tsunezuka H
  • Extended thymectomy reported by Masaoka in 1981 is a standard surgical treatment in patients with myasthenia gravis. Thoracoscopic thymectomy, which could be less invasive, has been widely accepted for an anterior mediastinal lesion in addition to the conventional median sternotomy approach. In thoracoscopic thymectomy, artificial pneumothorax using carbon deoxide(CO2) insufflation or chest wall …
  • Myasthenia gravis: Historical achievements and the "golden age" of clinical trials. [Review]

  • Since the death of Chief Opechankanough >350 years ago, the myasthenia gravis (MG) community has gained extensive knowledge about MG and how to treat it. This review highlights key milestones in the history of treatment and discusses the current "golden age" of clinical trials. Although originally thought by many clinicians to be a disorder of hysteria and fluctuating weakness without observable …
  • Pediatric Ocular Myasthenia Gravis. [Review]

  • We present a review of current strategies in the treatment of pediatric ocular myasthenia gravis (OMG). A critical appraisal was performed of the current literature available on OMG and the treatment options available for all age populations. From this data, we present the evidence surrounding therapeutic options for pediatric OMG and discuss treatment outcomes in the pediatric population. We als…
  • The safety of thymic vein sealing with ultrasonic energy in video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery thymectomy. [Journal Article]
    J Thorac Dis 2019; 11(8):3421-3426Wu H, Lin Q, … Xu Q
  • CONCLUSIONS: In VATS thymectomy (with or without thymic tumors), there is no significant difference in the treatment of thymic veins between Ham-Lock clipping and ultrasonic energy in conversion to open surgery in regards to thymic venous hemorrhage, postoperative drainage, blood transfusion, operation time, drainage, and hospital stay. Use of ultrasonic energy is a safe and reliable method for thymic vein disconnection.
