MEDINA RAMIREZ, Santiago; SANCHEZ, Ana Milena and GOMEZ OQUENDO, Francisco. Sugammadex Use in a Patient with Chronic Renal Failure. Rev. colomb. anestesiol. [online]. 2011, vol.39, n.3, pp. 433-439. ISSN 0120-3347. http://dx.doi.org/10.5554/rca.v39i3.219.
The introduction of sugammadex in clinical practice could improve the safety profile of muscle relaxants, however, its use in patients with renal diseases is questionable when considering its clearance mechanism, as this could generate some problems. This case report describes a patient with renal disease in whom sugammadex was administered with a quick neuromuscular block reversal without any adverse effects.
