This is a randomized, active-controlled, parallel-group, single-dose, multi-site, safety-assessor blinded study comparing sugammadex to neostigmine for reversal of neuromuscular blockade in Korean subjects undergoing elective surgical procedures under general anesthesia that require rocuronium for neuromuscular blockade. Study medication will be administered at reappearance of T2. Time to recovery will be measured from start of study medication administration to recovery of the T4/T1 ratio of 0.9. The primary hypothesis is that the time to recovery of the T4/T1 ratio of 0.9 is shorter with sugammadex than with neostigmine.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time From Start of Study Drug Administration to Recovery of the T4/T1 Ratio to 0.9 [ Time Frame: From Start of Study Drug Administration to Recovery of the T4/T1 Ratio to 0.9 (estimated from 2 minutes up to ~15 minutes) ]
    Neuromuscular functioning was monitored by applying repetitive Train-Of-Four (TOF) electrical stimulations to the ulnar nerve every 15 seconds & assessing twitch response at the adductor pollicis muscle. T1 & T4 refer to the magnitudes (height) of the 1st & 4th twitches, respectively, after TOF nerve stimulation. The T4/T1 Ratio (expressed as a decimal of up to 1.0) indicates the extent of recovery from neuromuscular blockade. In this study, twitch responses were recorded until the T4/T1 Ratio reached >= 0.9, the minimum acceptable ratio that indicated complete recovery.
