The authors analyse the recent 15 years' results of treatment of 51 patients with generalized myasthenia who underwent operation in the clinic for various surgical diseases. Forty-three of them had a history of operation on the thymus. The specific features of preoperative management, anesthesia, and postoperative treatment in this serious category of(More)
The thymus is studied morphologically in 139 cases of myasthenia (with no thymic neoplasia). Hyperplasia of true thymic parenchyma (without its intralobular perivascular spaces) was observed in 28%, no change in 40% and atrophy in 32% of cases. Two types of the disease were distinguished on the basis of morphological and clinico-immunological parameters:(More)
Deposits of granular material containing IgM, IgA, and IgG were revealed in the thymus of patients with myasthenia by direct immunofluorescence. Treatment of the thymus sections by unlabeled preparations against individual classes of human immunoglobulins inhibited the reaction of the granular material with the homologous labeled preparations. Disappearance(More)
The article deals with 30-year experience of the Burdenko Facultative Surgical Clinic in surgical management of generalized myasthenia. The analysis is based on 2,500 cases. This complex disease was worked out in stages, taking into account the advancements of the medical science in the given stage. It is noted that the immediate and late-term results of(More)
The work compares the results of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FAB) of the thyroid gland in nodular and diffuse-nodular euthyroid goiter (63 patients) with the findings of pathomorphological study of the operative material (51 patients). The authors' original device for puncture of the thyroid node is described. The suggested method makes it possible to(More)
It has been established that sera from myasthenia patients contain in 42% of cases IgG antibodies to the point antigenic structure on the lymphocyte surface of the human thymus, spleen and lymph nodes. This antigenic structure is less pronounced on the lymphocytes from the thymus of normal subjects as compared with lymphocytes from the spleen and lymph(More)
