The absence of similar reports in the existing literature precludes a comparison of our results; nevertheless, the reported onset time of ONB is longer (15 and 25 min using 1% mepivacaine
However, he advised avoiding long-acting anesthetic agents, such as mepivacaine
5 [micro]g/kg) added to mepivacaine
prolongs the duration of anesthesia and analgesia in brachial plexus block.

on the Contractility of Rat Myometrium.
Tenders invited for Local anasthetic mepivacaine

The most commonly used local anaesthetic in studies is lidocaine, although lignocaine, mepivacaine
, and levobupivacaine are also widely used.
Though it was synthesised by Ekenstam in 1957 and belongs to the same group as that of bupivacaine and mepivacaine
, pipecoloxylidides local anaesthetics, Ropivacaine was introduced to clinical practice in 1996.
2]: Administer every 8 hours Aspirin Avoid -- Ibuprofen Avoid -- Naproxen Avoid -- Anesthetics Lidocaine No adjustment N/A (Xylocaine) required Mepivacaine
No adjustment N/A required Antimicrobials Amoxicillin Use with caution 250 to 500 mg in patients with renal impairment; dosage adjustment recommended.
Dexamethasone added to mepivacaine

The local anesthetic used was 2 percent mepivacaine
hydrochloride with a volume of 1 to 2 mL per target.
reported that adding tramadol 100 mg to mepivacaine
1% prolonged the duration of both motor and sensory blocks in axillary brachial plexus block.
Another useful diagnostic tool can be to inject inferiorly from the dorsum a small volume of swift acting local anaesthetic to the area already suggested by palpation, using, for example, 1ml of plain 1% lidocaine or a similar agent such as mepivacaine
3% plain (Thomas et al 2009).
