Brief Summary:
The primary purpose of the study is to determine the time-course of recovery to a T4/T1 ratio of 0.9 after a dose of sugammadex when administered at least 15 minutes after the last administration of rocuronium in a wide range of surgical procedures and anesthetic regimens (routine use). Safety evaluation is part of the study.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1
Drug: sugammadex

Each subject will receive an intravenous single bolus dose of 0.6 mg/kg rocuronium. If further neuromuscular block is required after endotracheal intubation, maintenance dose(s) of 0.15 mg/kg rocuronium may be administered.

At least 15 minutes after the intubation dose or the last maintenance dose of rocuronium, an intravenous single bolus dose of 4.0 mg/kg Org 25969 will be administered.

Other Name: Org 25969

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time from start of administration of Org 25969 to recovery of theT4/T1 ratio to 0.9. [ Time Frame: After surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time from start of administration of Org 25969 to recovery of theT4/T1 ratio to 0.7 and 0.8; [ Time Frame: After surgery ]
  2. Clinical assessments of recovery, i.e., level of consciousness, 5-second head lift, and check for general muscle weakness, prior to transfer to the recovery room after extubation and prior to discharge from the recovery room. [ Time Frame: After surgery ]
