Characteristics of Mepivacaine

Anesthetic of the amide type.

Mepivacaine hydrochloride is a white, crystalline powder, odorless. It is soluble in water, resistant to both acidic and alkaline hydrolysis.


Pharmacological action - local anesthetic.

Being a weak lipophilic base, it passes through the lipid layer of the membrane of the nerve cell and, passing into the cationic form, binds to the receptors (remnants of the S6 transmembrane spiral domains) of the sodium channels of the membranes located in the terminals of the sensory nerves. Reversibly blocks the potential-dependent sodium channels, prevents the current of sodium ions through the cell membrane, stabilizes the membrane, increases the threshold of electrical stimulation of the nerve, reduces the rate of occurrence of the action potential and lowers its amplitude, eventually blocks the depolarization of the membrane, the emergence and carrying out of a pulse along nerve fibers.

Causes all kinds of local anesthesia: terminal, infiltration, conductive. Has a quick and powerful effect.

When entering the systemic circulation (and creating toxic concentrations in the blood) may have a depressing effect on the central nervous system and the myocardium (however, when applied in therapeutic doses, changes in conductivity, excitability, automatism, etc. are minimal).

The dissociation constant (pKa) is 7.6; solubility in fats is average. The degree of systemic absorption and plasma concentration depends on the dose, the mode of administration, the vascularization of the injection site, and the presence or absence of epinephrine in the anesthetic solution. Adding a diluted epinephrine solution (1: 200,000, or 5 μg / ml) to mepivacaine solution usually reduces the absorption of mepivacaine and its concentration in the plasma. Binding to plasma proteins is high (about 75%). Penetrates through the placenta. Not exposed to the action of plasma esterases. Rapidly metabolized in the liver, the main ways of metabolism - hydroxylation and N-demethylation. Adults identified 3 metabolites - two phenolic derivatives (excreted as glucuronides) and an N-demethylated metabolite (2 ', 6'-pipecyloxylidide). T1 / 2 in adults - 1.9-3.2 hours; in newborns - 8,7-9 hours. More than 50% of the dose in the form of metabolites is excreted into bile, then reabsorbed in the intestine (a small percentage is found in feces) and is excreted in urine after 30 h, including. in unchanged form (5-10%). Cumulates when a violation of the liver (cirrhosis, hepatitis).

Loss of sensitivity is noted after 3-20 minutes. Anesthesia lasts 45-180 minutes. The time parameters of anesthesia (start time and duration) depend on the type of anesthesia, the technique used, the concentration of the solution (dose of the drug), and the individual characteristics of the patient. Addition of solutions of vasoconstrictors is accompanied by prolongation of anesthesia.

Studies to assess carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, effects on fertility in animals and humans have not been carried out.

Application of the Mepivacaine

Local anesthesia with interventions in the oral cavity (all types), intubation of the trachea, broncho- and esophagoscopy, tonsillectomy, etc.


Hypersensitivity, incl. to other amide anesthetics; old age, severe myasthenia gravis, severe liver function disorders (including cirrhosis of the liver), porphyria.

Restrictions on the use

Pregnancy, breast-feeding.

Application in pregnancy and lactation

When pregnancy is possible, if the expected effect of therapy exceeds the potential risk to the fetus (may cause a narrowing of the uterine artery and fetal hypoxia). With caution in the period of breastfeeding (no data on penetration into breast milk).

Side effects of Mepivacaine

From the nervous system and sensory organs: agitation and / or depression, headache, ringing in the ears, weakness; violation of speech, swallowing, sight; convulsions, coma.

From the cardiovascular system and blood (hematopoiesis, hemostasis): hypotension (or sometimes hypertension), bradycardia, ventricular arrhythmia, cardiac arrest is possible.

Allergic reactions: sneezing, hives, pruritis, erythema, chills, fever, Quincke's edema.

Other: depression of the respiratory center, nausea, vomiting.


Beta-adrenoblockers, calcium channel blockers, antiarrhythmic drugs increase the inhibitory effect on conduction and contractility of the myocardium.


Symptoms: hypotension, arrhythmia, increased muscle tone, loss of consciousness, convulsions, hypoxia, hypercapnia, respiratory and metabolic acidosis, dyspnea, apnea, cardiac arrest.

Treatment: hyperventilation, maintenance of adequate oxygenation, auxiliary respiration, arresting convulsions and convulsions

(administration of thiopental 50-100 mg IV or diazepam 5-10 mg IV), normalization of blood circulation, correction of acidosis.

Routes of administration


Precautions for the substance Mepivacaine

With caution appoint patients with hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver failure, severe renal dysfunction, acidosis.

Special instructions

It is not recommended for subarachnoid (spinal) anesthesia.
