Myasthenia gravis is a thymic lesion is closely related to autoimmune disease involving the neuromuscular junction of the acetylcholine receptor, manifested as bone weakness and fatigue, with light weight is caused by the loss of labor, respiratory muscle weakness and endanger life (crisis).
Extended thymectomy surgery is accepted and preferred the most effective treatment method, most of the previous traditional open chest surgery, but the surgery required by the sternal splitting, injury, large incision scar after operation, seriously affect the appearance, and easy to cause the postoperative crisis, lung function damage, phrenic nerve injury, and mediastinum pulmonary infection and other complications of high probability, often make patients difficult to accept. Now the minimally invasive surgery represented by thoracoscope was showing great advantages, expand the operation field, large screen display is more convenient for the surgeon operation at the same time, shorten the operation time and the average hospitalization days. The utility model has the advantages of small trauma, light pain, quick recovery, reliable curative effect, small incision, and the like, which meets the requirements of the health and beauty of the patients.
I have rich experience of nearly more than 3 thousand cases of thoracic surgery, neurology and power technology in the domestic leading position, in early 2005 the first in the province to carry out video-assisted thoracoscopic extended thymectomy for myasthenia gravis, has been carried out for nearly 150 cases, all operations were successful, less postoperative complications, satisfactory curative effect many patients received surgical cases increased year by year, so that more patients receive treatment of early cure.
