Sugammadex and Postoperative Myasthenic Crisis

This was a database study with its inherent limitations but looked at adults with Myasthenia Gravis undergoing thymectomy and postoperative outcomes, specifically examining the use of Sugammadex.

They found that sugammadex was associated with reductions in postoperative myasthenic crisis and total hospitalization costs and length of stay, but no differences in the secondary outcome of postoperative pneumonia.

They advocate the routine use of Sugammadex in such patients.
