Abstract

The current recommendations for treating myasthenia gravis include surgical thymectomy for patients between puberty and 60 years of age. This is a report of a new method for surgical thymectomy using the robotic da Vinci surgical system for a totally endoscopic approach. This new procedure combines the potential advantages of minimally invasive methods with the efficacy of open procedures.
