The authors report their experience with 112 female patients undergoing laparoscopy: they have been divided into two groups according to the drug used for muscle relaxation (atracurium versus succinylcholine). During the procedure the following parameters were recorded: intraabdominal pressure, arterial pressure, heart rate, arterial blood oxygen saturation, end tidal CO2 and the occurrence of adverse effects. According to the collected data they assume that atracurium can be considered the ideal muscle relaxant for this surgical procedure.
