PURPOSE: To study the effect of different doses of prednisone on the recovery of patients with MG from thoracoscopic thymectomy, establishing the safe dose of prednisone in perioperative period.
METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 32 cases of patients with MG from Mar 2013 to Sept 2014, who underwent thoracocopic thymectomy with administrating prednisone in perioperative period. The cases of patients in control group with daily dose of prednisone less than or equal to 20mg were 17, and the patients in study group with daily dose of prednisone between 21mg and 60mg were 15 cases. The dose and directions for use of prednisone have already been adjusted well by conservative care, so we didn’t change them. According to the modified Osserman type, there were 2 cases of type Ⅰ, 14 cases of type Ⅱb, 1 case of type Ⅲ in control group. There were 1 case of type Ⅰ, 1 case of type Ⅱa, 9 cases of type Ⅱb, 4 cases of type Ⅲ in study group.
