Brief Summary:
Investigators assess and compare postoperative sore throat and hoarseness in the group maintaining moderate relaxation and deep relaxation during operation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Sore Throat Drug: Rocuronium(deep) Drug: Rocuronium(moderate) Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In this sturdy, the deep block is applied when the surgeon requests for deep muscle relaxation to improve surgical field condition in the surgery such as laparotomy known that the deep block is helpful and in the other surgeries, the moderate block is maintained. The investigators assess the postoperative sore throat and hoarseness and compare the effect of muscle relaxation depth in the deep block group and moderate block group in terms of the incidence and severity of postoperative sore throat and hoarseness.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Moderate muscle relaxation
Rocuronium is administered to maintain moderate relaxation during operation. This is conventional muscle relaxation level of this institute.
Drug: Rocuronium(moderate)
In the group with deep relaxation during surgery, rocuronium is given by bolus dose(0.15mg/kg) induced a train of four count of 1-2.

Experimental: Deep muscle relaxation
Rocuronium is administered to maintain deep relaxation during operation.
Drug: Rocuronium(deep)
In the group with deep relaxation during surgery, rocuronium is given by continuous infusion (0.6 mg/kg/h).




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall incidence of postoperative sore throat [ Time Frame: Within 24 hrs after operation ]
    The overall cumulative incidence of postoperative sore throat is assessed in the 24-hr evaluation period


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence of postoperative sore throat [ Time Frame: At 1,6, and 24 hrs after operation ]
    The presence of sore throat is assessed.

  2. The severity of postoperative sore throat [ Time Frame: At 1,6, and 24 hrs after operation ]
    The severity of sore throat is assessed by using a 100-point numerical ratig scale (NRS, 0 [no pain], 100 [worst pain imaginable]).

  3. Incidence and severity of postoperative hoarseness [ Time Frame: At 1,6, and 24 hrs after operation ]
    Hoarseness is defined as a voice quality different from the preoperative voice and graded as follows: none (no hoarseness), mild (recognized by the patient), moderate (obvious to the investigator), and severe (aphonia).

  4. Postoperative analgesic consumption [ Time Frame: Within 24 hrs after operation ]
    The amount of patient-controlled analgesia and other analgesic medication used
