Understanding Myasthenia Gravis: Diagnosis & Management

Jul 17, 5:30 AM

The most prevalent condition affecting the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) of the skeletal muscles is myasthenia gravis (MG). The classic presentation is a variable weakness, more pronounced in the late afternoon. Usually, the muscles in the eyes, throat, and extremities are involved. Muscle weakness results from the diminished electrical impulse transmission across the neuromuscular junction caused by the development of autoantibodies against the particular postsynaptic membrane proteins. MG can be triggered by a wide range of factors, including infections, vaccinations, operations, and medications. Numerous difficulties are brought on by myasthenia gravis. The acute respiratory paralysis known as myasthenic crisis, which necessitates critical care, as well as side effects from long-term pharmaceutical use, such as opportunistic infections and lymphoproliferative cancers, are among them. A complete understanding of the pathophysiologic mechanisms, clinical manifestations, treatment strategies, and complications of myasthenia gravis is necessary for better patient care and outcomes. Join us live with Dr. Sahay for this blockbuster live to understand about MG in depth.
