(6) In European kestrels (Falco tinnunculus), mydriasis was inconsistent with topical pancuronium bromide, and although effectively achieved with topical alcuronium chloride, birds developed temporary inferior eyelid paralysis (5/8 birds) and neck and limb paralysis (1/8 birds) with topical alcuronium chloride.
In 1 study in kestrels (Falco tinnunculus), the mydriatic effect of topical administration of 3 different NMBAs (alcuronium chloride, pancuronium bromide, and vecuronium bromide) was evaluated.
The NMBAs used were alcuronium chloride (5 mg/mL), pancuronium bromide (2 mg/mL), and vecuronium bromide (4 mg/mL), applied topically at different dosages.
