systemic toxicities and lipophilic drug toxicities is essential for improving patient outcomes and reversing potentially fatal drug overdoses.
Ropivacaine, (S entaniomeramino-amide) local anesthetic
, chemically similar to bupivacaine, is being used at present because of its less cardiac and central nervous system toxicity.4

The procedure is appealing because it involves minimal cutting, short recuperation time, little pain afterwards, and only a local anesthetic
