Early extubation after thymectomy is good for the patients with myasthenia gravis.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES:Patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) often benefit from thymectomy, but the optimal timing of extubation following thymectomy in these patients remains unknown. This study of MG patients compared the effect of early and late extubation following thymectomy on clinical outcome. METHODS:We performed a study of data from 96 patients with MG who received thymectomy procedures, followed by early (?6 h) extubation, at our institution between October 2011 and November 2017. Patient clinical and demographic characteristics, preoperative data, and postoperative clinical outcomes were analyzed. Data sharing is not applicable to this article as no datasets were generated or analyzed during the current study. RESULTS:The patients in the early extubation group (n?=?53) and late extubation group (n?=?43) had similar preoperative clinical and demographic characteristics. However, the early extubation group had a significantly longer duration of MG (24 months vs. 12 months, P?
