Abstract

Background and Objectives: Although epinephrine commonly is added to local anesthetics for regional anesthesia, rarely it may cause undesirable hemodynamic side effects. This study compared the hemodynamic and blockade effects of 25 and 200 jig epinephrine during axillary brachial plexus blockade with lidocaine 1.5%.
