18 September 2017 - UK-based drugmaker AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) has entered into an agreement with Mauritius-based Aspen Group's Aspen Global Inc business under which AGI will now acquire the residual rights to the established anaesthetic medicines comprising of Diprivan, EMLA,Xylocaine/Xylocard/Xyloproct, Marcaine, Naropin, Carbocaine and Citanest, the company said.
The nerve block was achieved with 3% mepivacaine and the soft-tissue infiltration with 2% mepivacaine and 1: 100,000 adrenaline (Carbocaine, AstraZeneca, Italy).
Various concentration of different drugs like lignocaine, mepivacaine, ropivacaine, carbocaine, bupivacaine, etc.
Before injections 4% carbocaine followed by 5% povidine iodide and 0.4% oxybuprocaine were applied as surface anesthetics for IVTA and SBTA respectively.
All but two cases (that underwent general anesthesia due to the preference of the patient) underwent canaloplasty under local anesthesia (peribulbar injection of carbocaine and lidocaine).
Local anesthetics are given by injection or topically, and include benzocaine, bupivacaine (Marcaine, Sensorcaine), chloroprocaine (Nesacaine), camphor, dibucaine (Nuper-cainal), levobupivacaine (Chirocaine), lidocaine (Xylocaine, Octocaine), mepivacaine (Carbocaine, Polocaine), pramoxine, prilocaine (Citanest), procaine (Novocaine), ropivacaine (Naropin), and tetracaine (Pontocaine).
We then administer a paracervical/intracervical block with 1% mepivacaine (Carbocaine, Polocaine), which is longer acting than lidocaine.
