Spinal 2-chloroprocaine: a comparison with lidocaine in volunteers.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  14693590     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: The spinal anesthetic profile of chloroprocaine (40 mg) compares favorably with the same dose of spinal lidocaine. Reliable sensory and motor blockade with predictable duration and minimal side effects and without signs of transient neurological symptoms make chloroprocaine an attractive choice for outpatient spinal anesthesia.
