BACKGROUND: Combined rocuronium and cisatracurium have synergistic effects. We investigated whether reduced doses are effective during coadministration, by monitoring neuromuscular relaxation during surgery. METHODS: This randomized, controlled clinical trial was registered at http://clinicaltrials.gov (registration number NCT02495038). The participants were 81 patients scheduled for elective mastoidectomy and tympanoplasty. Participants were assigned to groups, including the intubating dose group (Group I, n = 27; combined ED95 rocuronium and ED95 cisatracurium), the small reduction group (Group S, n = 27; dose reduced by 10% of each ED95), or the large reduction group (Group L, n = 27; dose reduced by 20% of each ED95)...

Chirally pure molecules or enantiomers are non-superimposable mirror images of each other with a chiral center (such as carbon, sulphur, nitrogen or phosphorous atom). An equimolar mixture of enantiomers forms a racemate. Chirally pure molecules (single enantiomers) are important in the field of drug discovery as the drug targets such as enzymes and receptors are enantioselective in nature. Clinical studies have demonstrated that chirally pure drugs exhibit different pharmacokinetic and metabolic profiles, reduced adverse events, improved safety profiles and similar therapeutic activity at lowered drug dosage as compared with the racemate in many therapeutic areas...

RATIONALE: The neuromuscular blocking agent cisatracurium may improve mortality for patients with moderate-severe ARDS. Other neuromuscular blocking agents, such as vecuronium, are commonly used and have different mechanisms of action, side effects, cost, and availability in the setting of drug shortages. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether cisatracurium is associated with improved outcomes when compared vecuronium in patients at risk for and with ARDS. METHODS: Using a nationally representative database, patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with a diagnosis of ARDS or an ARDS risk factor, received mechanical ventilation, and were treated with a continuous infusion of neuromuscular blocking agent for at least two days within two days of hospital admission were included...

We report the successful treatment of idiopathic intractable hiccups with cisatracurium under intravenous general anesthesia. The patient had a history of hiccups for 19 years that were refractory to a variety of treatments. When his hiccups were accompanied by vomiting, insomnia, shortness of breath, and poor oral intake for 9 days, he sought relief. We administered a nondepolarizing muscle relaxant, cisatracurium, during total intravenous anesthesia, to stop the hiccups. The duration of the anesthetic was determined by the time it took for the patient to recover from the neuromuscular blockade without reversal the cisatracurium...

OBJECTIVE: Fentanyl-induced cough (FIC) is a common complication with a reported incidence from 18.0% to 74.4% during general anesthesia induction. FIC increases the intrathoracic pressure and risks of postoperative nausea and vomiting, yet available treatments are limited. This study was designed to investigate whether administering fentanyl via a slow intravenous fluid line can effectively alleviate FIC during induction of total intravenous general anesthesia. METHODS: A total number of 1200 patients, aged 18-64 years, were enrolled, all of whom were American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade I or II undergoing scheduled surgeries...

Neuromuscular-blocking agents are commonly used in laboratory animal research settings. Due to actions of cholinergic receptors at locations other than the motor end-plate, these agents have a strong propensity to modulate autonomic outflow and may therefore not be desirable in studies examining autonomic function. This study aimed to compare the effect of two non-depolarizing neuromuscular-blocking agents, pancuronium and cisatracurium, on blood pressure, heart rate and non-invasive indices of autonomic function (heart rate variability, systolic blood pressure variability and baroreflex sensitivity) under two different types of anaesthesia in Lewis rats...

BACKGROUND: Neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) have been shown to improve the outcome of the most severely hypoxemic, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients. However, the recommended dosage as well as the necessity of monitoring the neuromuscular block is unknown. We aimed to evaluate the efficiency of a nurse-directed protocol of NMBA administration based on a train-of-four (TOF) assessment to ensure a profound neuromuscular block and decrease cisatracurium consumption compared to an elevated and constant dose regimen...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Muscle relaxants, also known as neuromuscular blocking agents, can block nerve impulses to the muscles and are always used in surgery for general anesthesia. However, the effect of muscle-relaxant anesthetics on cell activity in gastric cancer is currently unknown. The present study aimed to examine and compare the role of three different muscle-relaxant anesthetics in gastric cancer cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Gastric cancer cells (SGC7901 and BGC 823) were treated with a different dose of muscle-relaxant anesthetics, Rocuronium bromide (Rb), Vecuronium bromide (Vb) and Cisatracurium Besilate (CB)...

BACKGROUND: Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) encephalitis is a rare neurological disorder that is caused by the production of antibodies against NMDARs. As many anaesthetic drugs interact with NMDARs and may worsen the disease and because the disease poses risks, such as cardiovascular events, hyperthermia and respiratory insufficiency, while under anaesthesia, administering anaesthesia to patients with this disorder is clinically challenging. CASE PRESENTATION: A 55-year-old man with gastric cancer associated with anti-NMDAR encephalitis who was diagnosed 8 months prior was admitted to Peking University Cancer Hospital for tumour resection...

BACKGROUND: A drug shortage of cisatracurium led to use of atracurium as an alternative neuromuscular blocker (NMB). Cisatracurium may be preferred due to less histamine release and potentially less hypotension. The study purpose is to compare the incidence of hypotension with continuous infusion atracurium to continuous infusion cisatracurium in ICU patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective cohort analysis reviewed 119 ICU patients who received either continuous infusion atracurium (56) or cisatracurium (63)...

Activation of oncogenes and suppression of repressor genes are believed to play crucial roles in the pathogenesis of human colorectal carcinoma. Cisatracurium, a nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, has been reported to inhibit cell proliferation while promoting apoptosis. However, the underlining mechanism, of these growth setbacks are not well understood. We assessed the growth of human colorectal carcinoma (HCT116) and its cell cycle distribution upon cisatracurium exposure. Significant cell growth inhibition and accumulation of cells in G1 phase of the cell cycle was observed in treated cells compared with untreated cells (control)...
