Laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery demands a tailored approach from the surgical team, especially the anesthesiologist and surgeon. Collaboration is key in the attempt to achieve good outcomes and decrease the rate of complications. Deep neuromuscular blockade during laparoscopic surgery helps to improve the surgical space conditions, facilitate the use of low-pressure pneumoperitoneum, prevent sudden patient movements, and reduce postoperative pain.
