OBJECTIVES: Neostigmine is routinely used to reverse non-depolarizing neuromuscular block. Given its indirect mechanism, a plateau may exist whereby increasing doses of neostigmine do not result in clinical benefit. This study was designed to measure the speed of reversal of vecuronium-induced neuromuscular block in isoflurane-anesthetized dogs after the administration of three doses of neostigmine as used in clinical practice. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, crossover, randomized study...

During surgery, changes in intraocular pressure (IOP) can be observed resulting from several factors, such as airway manipulations and drugs used. We aimed to investigate the effects of sugammadex and neostigmine on IOP, hemodynamic parameters, and complications after extubation. Our study comprised 60 patients, aged 18-65 years, with a risk status of the American Society of Anesthesiologists I-II who underwent arthroscopic surgery under general anesthesia. The patients were randomly assigned into two groups...

PURPOSE: Positioning for surgery can restrict access to the patient's hand, thereby limiting assessment of the response at the adductor pollicis muscle to ulnar nerve stimulation. We evaluated a novel site to assess neuromuscular block by stimulating the accessory nerve and measuring the acceleromyographic response at the trapezius muscle. METHODS: In this prospective non-blinded observational study, we assessed neuromuscular transmission in anesthetized adult female patients undergoing elective laparoscopic gynecological surgery...

A 39-year-old female with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) was scheduled for thoracoscopic resection of an anterior mediastinal tumor. She had slowly progressive weakness and atrophy in the fascial and shoulder girdle muscles. General anesthesia was induced and maintained with propofol, remifentanil, and fentanyl combined with thoracic paravertebral block. Rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade was evaluated with acceleromyography at the corrugator supercilii, masseter, and adductor pollicis muscles...

In morbidly obese patients, the speed of reversal of neuromuscular blockade with sugammadex based on ideal body weight is still matter of debate. In this single-center, randomised, double-blinded study, neuromuscular blockade was monitored in 50 patients using acceleromyography at the adductor pollicis. At the end of surgery with deep rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade, patients randomly received sugammadex 4 (high dose group), 2 (middle dose group), or 1 (low dose group) of ideal body weight...

BACKGROUND: Circulatory factors modify the onset time of neuromuscular-blocking drugs. Therefore, we hypothesized that infusion of a saline flush immediately after rocuronium administration would shorten the onset time without influencing the duration of the rocuronium effect. METHODS: Forty-eight patients were randomly allocated to the control or saline flush group. Anesthesia was induced and maintained with propofol and remifentanil, and all patients received 0...

BACKGROUND: Centronuclear myopathy (CNM) is a rare congenital condition associated with skeletal muscle weakness. Patients with CNM may have decreased acetylcholine receptor expression and a reduced number of releasable quanta. Such perturbations could affect the time-course of neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) and their antagonism with cholinesterase inhibitors. As a result of the rarity of CNM, prospective data regarding NMBA use in this subpopulation is scarce. We evaluated the neuromuscular blocking effects of cisatracurium and its antagonism with neostigmine in a canine model of CNM...

TOF (train-of-four) monitoring provides objective data in application of neuromuscular blocking agent. Thus, applicator-based differences are eliminated and optimum muscle relaxation is maintained during operation. In the present study, we aimed to compare the effects of target-controlled infusion system and standard TOF monitoring, on use of rocuronium. ASA I-II patients, who were aged between 18 and 75 years and scheduled for elective abdominal surgery at Haydarpaşa Numune Training and Research Hospital, were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: Renal failure affects the pharmacology of nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockers making recovery of neuromuscular function unpredictable. Sugammadex antagonises rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade by encapsulating rocuronium, creating a stable complex molecule that is mainly excreted by the kidneys. Previous studies suggest that sugammadex is effective in reversing moderate neuromuscular block in the presence of renal failure, but no data are available regarding reversal of profound neuromuscular block in patients with renal failure...

BACKGROUND: Preoperative oral rehydration solution (ORS) prevents hypovolemia. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of intubating dose of rocuronium in patients taking and those not taking preoperative ORS. METHODS: Twenty patients, ASA I aged 20-50 years scheduled for elective surgery, were investigated and randomly assigned to two groups: drinking 1,500 ml ORS 6 to 2 hours before anesthesia (ORS group) and nothing by mouth from 6 hours before anesthesia (control group)...

BACKGROUND: Neuromuscular monitoring using the corrugator supercilii muscle is associated with a number of challenges. The aim of this study was to assess reversal of a rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade with sugammadex according to monitoring either using the corrugator supercilii muscle or the adductor pollicis muscle. We hypothesized that a larger dose of sugammadex would be required to obtain a train-of-four (TOF) ratio of 1.0 with the corrugator supercilii muscle than with the adductor pollicis muscle...
