Comparison of Sugammadex With Neostigmine During Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy or Appendectomy (Study 19.4.318AM2)(P05699)(COMPLETED)

2014-07-23 21:21:34 | BioPortfolio


The current trial was designed to demonstrate faster recovery from a neuromuscular blockade induced by rocuronium after reversal at 1-2 PTC by 4.0 sugammadex compared to 50 µ neostigmine at reappearance of T2 in subjects undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy or appendectomy under propofol anesthesia, to compare safety and to evaluate operating room and Post Anesthetic Care Unit length of stay.


In those surgical procedures where a neuromuscular block is desired for intubation and/or avoid unwanted muscular activity, anesthesiologists may use a more profound NMB until the end of surgery, e.g. in open abdominal procedures or during laparoscopic procedures in order to improve surgical conditions. Reversal with sugammadex at a dose of 4.0 at 1-2 PTC after an intubation dose of 0.6 or maintenance dosing rocuronium has been found to be both safe and efficacious in previous clinical trials but has never been investigated exclusively in subjects undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy or appendectomy.

With sugammadex profound muscle relaxation may now be provided right up to the end of the surgical procedure. This may lead to improved Patient Outcomes, such as improvement in the time from end of surgery to the discharge to the PACU. In this multi-center, randomized, parallel-group, active-controlled, safety-assessor blinded trial such benefits will be further investigated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.

A cholinesterase inhibitor used in the treatment of myasthenia gravis and to reverse the effects of muscle relaxants such as gallamine and tubocurarine. Neostigmine, unlike PHYSOSTIGMINE, does not cross the blood-brain barrier.

The period of emergence from general anesthesia, where different elements of consciousness return at different rates.

A barbiturate that is administered intravenously for the production of complete anesthesia of short duration, for the induction of general anesthesia, or for inducing a hypnotic state. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p919)

Agents that induce various degrees of analgesia; depression of consciousness, circulation, and respiration; relaxation of skeletal muscle; reduction of reflex activity; and amnesia. There are two types of general anesthetics, inhalation and intravenous. With either type, the arterial concentration of drug required to induce anesthesia varies with the condition of the patient, the desired depth of anesthesia, and the concomitant use of other drugs. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p.173)
