The Mechanisms of the Differential Sensitivity to Non-Depolarizing Muscle Relaxants of the Adductor and Abductor Laryngeal Muscles in Rat
The difference in sensitivity to non-depolarizing muscle relaxants between laryngeal and peripheral skeletal muscles has been reported in humans. However there is little information about the electrophysiological mechanisms of differential sensitivity in the intrinsic laryngeal muscles at the neuromuscular junction to non-depolarizing muscle relaxants. The aim of this study is to investigate the mechanism of differential sensitivity of the adductor (lateral cricoarytenoid; LCA) and the abductor (posterior cricoarytenoid;PCA ) laryngeal muscles to non depolarizing neuromuscular relaxants at the neuromuscular junction.
