Abstract

Motor neuron diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and myopathies are associated with a higher risk of cardiac and respiratory complications, especially during operative procedures. This review gives an overview of the various complications from which patients with motor neurone diseases and muscular dystrophies may suffer during operations and anaesthesia. The main focus is on the pathophysiological aspects as well as the diagnoses of typical cardiac and respiratory complications, their prevention, and their management.
