Objective-Neuromuscular blockade (NMB) is administered as part of a general anesthetic in order to keep the Patient immobilized during surgery and has been known to hinder intraoperative neuromonitorization. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of different levels of NMB on electrical stimulation thresholds of the facial nerve during otologic surgery.
