Preoperative anxiety (POA) is common but typically neglected in MG patients.[] No significant differences were detected with regard to myasthenic crisis, wound infection, and muscle weakness improvement.[] New scoring systems are defined to predict a postoperative myasthenic crisis. For VATET in juvenile cases, blockers can be a good option for the airway management.[]
