[Rocuronium and sugammadex use for the management of neuromuscular blockade in urgent abdominal surgery in a patient with Landouzy-Dejerine myopathy].

Abstract

In patients with neuromuscular diseases, the use of rocuronium in the general anesthesia rapid sequence induction provides safety intubation conditions, but induces a deep and prolonged neuromuscular blockade. We report dose reduction to 0.8mg/kg for a 47-year-old female with Landouzy-Dejerine myopathy. Therefore, less dose of sugammadex was given to reverse the neuromuscular block.
