Table 3 Effect of sugammadex on length of stay in the post-anesthesia care unit, post-operative hospital stay and unplanned readmission, as compared to neostigmine, in patients who underwent robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy, based on a propensity score-matched cohort

From: Comparison of the effects of sugammadex and neostigmine on hospital stay in robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy: a retrospective study
