Values are median (range) or numbers (%). Time till TOF ratio = 1.0 (min) = time from start of injection of rocuronium until the TOF ratio reached 1.0. Time without relaxation = time from TOF ratio of 1.0 till tracheal extubation. SEVO group = anesthesia with sevoflurane and remifentanil. TIVA group = anesthesia with propofol and remifentanil.
