My experience with imbretil (hexabiscarbacholine) as a skeletal-muscle relaxant in 108 patients suggests that its administration should never be repeated during the same operation, that it is relatively contraindicated in thoracic surgery and absolutely contraindicated in obstetrical practice, and that its action can be completely prevented and blocked early on by hexafluorenium, and afterwards, less predictably perhaps, by neostigmine.
