Muscle relaxants are routinely applied during anesthesia to facilitate endotracheal intubation and to improve surgical working conditions. Several investigations have shown that a deep neuromuscular block (NMB) improves the surgical working conditions over a moderate NMB and effectively precludes sudden deterioration of the surgical field. However, whether the improvement of surgical working conditions translates into less intra- and postoperative complications remains uncertain. Small prospective or retrospective studies shown an decrease of the incidence of intraoperative adverse events and postoperative complications after a deep NMB. There is a need to confirm these outcome data prospectively, in a large number of patients and clinics and during a variety of surgical procedures.
Muscle relaxants are routinely applied during anesthesia to facilitate endotracheal intubation and to improve surgical working conditions. Several investigations have shown that a deep neuromuscular block (NMB) (post tetanic count (PTC) 1-2 twitches) improves the surgical working conditions over a moderate NMB (TOF count 1-3 twitches) and effectively precludes sudden deterioration of the surgical field. However, whether the improvement of surgical working conditions translates into less intra- and postoperative complications remains uncertain. A recent retrospective analysis of neuromuscular management during laparoscopic retroperitoneal surgery showed a reduced rate of unplanned 30 day readmissions when a deep NMB over a moderate NMB was applied (3.8% vs. 12.7%).In addition, a pooled analysis of 4 randomized controlled trials comparing different levels of intra-abdominal pressure and neuromuscular blockade during laparoscopic donor nephrectomy, showed a significant reduction in the incidence of intra-operative surgical complications from 12.6% with moderate NMB to 4.8% with deep NMB.
These previous observations were made in small prospective or retrospective studies. There is a need to confirm these outcome data prospectively, in a larger prospective trial for a variety of surgical procedures. We therefore propose a multi-center, randomized controlled trial, to study the effect of a deep NMB (PTC 1-2 twitches) versus standard NMB (single induction dose rocuronium) in a variety of laparoscopic surgical procedures on the incidence of intraoperative adverse events and postoperative outcome data.
In this study the effect of deep neuromuscular block compared to standard neuromuscular block on intra-operative adverse events during laparoscopic surgery using the CLASSIC score system is evaluated.

The intentional interruption of transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION by external agents, usually neuromuscular blocking agents. It is distinguished from NERVE BLOCK in which nerve conduction (NEURAL CONDUCTION) is interrupted rather than neuromuscular transmission. Neuromuscular blockade is commonly used to produce MUSCLE RELAXATION as an adjunct to anesthesia during surgery and other medical procedures. It is also often used as an experimental manipulation in basic research. It is not strictly speaking anesthesia but is grouped here with anesthetic techniques. The failure of neuromuscular transmission as a result of pathological processes is not included here.
The use of peripheral nerve stimulation to assess transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION, especially in the response to anesthetics, such as the intensity of NEUROMUSCULAR BLOCKADE by NEUROMUSCULAR BLOCKING AGENTS.
Various salts of a quaternary ammonium oxime that reconstitute inactivated acetylcholinesterase, especially at the neuromuscular junction, and may cause neuromuscular blockade. They are used as antidotes to organophosphorus poisoning as chlorides, iodides, methanesulfonates (mesylates), or other salts.
Drugs that interrupt transmission of nerve impulses at the skeletal neuromuscular junction. They can be of two types, competitive, stabilizing blockers (NEUROMUSCULAR NONDEPOLARIZING AGENTS) or noncompetitive, depolarizing agents (NEUROMUSCULAR DEPOLARIZING AGENTS). Both prevent acetylcholine from triggering the muscle contraction and they are used as anesthesia adjuvants, as relaxants during electroshock, in convulsive states, etc.
Signs and symptoms associated with diseases of the muscle, neuromuscular junction, or peripheral nerves.

Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
