Laparoscopic right hemicolectomy surgery requires a tailored approach from the surgical team, especially the anesthesiologist
and surgeon. Collaboration is key to achieve good outcomes and decrease the complication rate. Deep neuromuscular blockade during laparoscopic surgery helps improve surgical space conditions, facilitates the use of low-pressure pneumoperitoneum, prevents sudden patient movements, and reduces postoperative pain.
