Pharmacological action - local anesthetic.

Reversibly blocks the potential-dependent sodium channels, prevents the generation of pulses in the endings of the sensory nerves and their conduction along nerve fibers. If it enters the systemic circulation, it has a depressing effect on the central nervous system and myocardium (reduces excitability and automatism, slows down the conductivity).

The time of onset and duration of local anesthesia depend on the route of administration and dose and are, respectively: with epidural anesthesia at the lumbar and thoracic level - 10-20 min and 3-5 h (0.75% solution) or 4-6 h (1% solution); with conduction and infiltration anesthesia - 1-15 min and 2-6 h (0.75% solution); with blockade of large plexus plexus (humeral plexus) - 10-25 min and 6-10 h (0.75% solution). Analgesic effect with epidural administration at the lumbar level (bolus injection) is achieved in 10-15 minutes and remains 0.5-1.5 hours, with conductive and infiltration anesthesia - after 1-5 minutes and last 2-6 hours (0.2 % solution).

The distribution coefficient of n-octanol / phosphate buffer (pH 7.4) is 141, pKa is 8.1. The concentration in the plasma depends on the dose, the mode of administration and the vascularization of the injection site. Completely absorbed from the epidural space, the absorption has a two-phase character with T1 / 2 - 14 minutes and 4 hours, respectively. In plasma, it binds mainly to acidic glycoproteins. Plasma clearance - 440 ml / min, the volume of distribution - 47 liters. Passes through GEB, the placental barrier and penetrates into breast milk (in small amounts). Biotransformed mainly by hydroxylation, the main metabolite is 3-hydroxypyvacaine. The final T1 / 2 is 1.8 hours. About 86% of the IV dose is excreted in the urine in the form of metabolites (73% - conjugated 3-hydroxyropivacaine) and 1% - unchanged.

Application of the substance Ropivacaine

Local anesthesia: epidural, incl. at caesarean section, conductor (including large nerves and plexuses), infiltration; relief of acute pain syndrome (including postoperative analgesia and analgesia of childbirth).


Hypersensitivity, age to 12 years (there is a lack of sufficient number of clinical observations).

Restrictions on the use

Blockade of the heart (partial or complete), cirrhosis, renal failure.

Application in pregnancy and lactation

With caution in pregnancy and breast-feeding (penetrates into breast milk). The application for anesthesia or analgesia in obstetrics is justified.

The action category for fetus by FDA is B.

Side effects of the substance Ropivacaine

Hypo- or hypertension, brady or tachycardia, headache, dizziness, paresthesia, neuropathy, impaired spinal cord function (anterior dorsal artery syndrome, arachnoiditis), nausea, vomiting, chills, fever, urinary retention, allergic reactions (in t anaphylactic shock).


Strengthens the toxic effect of other local anesthetics and drugs, similar in structure to local anesthetics of the amide type. Strengthens (mutually) the action of funds that depress the central nervous system.

Update of information

Interaction with inhibitors of CYP1A2

Isozyme CYP1A2 cytochrome P450 is involved in the formation of the main metabolite of ropivacaine - 3-hydroxypyvacaine. In vivo, the combined use of ropivacaine and a selective potent inhibitor of CYP1A2-fluvoxamine (25 mg twice daily for 2 days) reduced the plasma clearance of ropivacaine by 70%. Thus, strong inhibitors of CYP1A2, such as fluvoxamine, can simultaneously interact with ropivacaine, leading to an increase in plasma levels of ropivacaine. Caution should be exercised when combining ropivacaine with CYP1A2 inhibitors.

Interaction with other drugs

It is advisable to use caution when combined with ropivacaine and antiarrhythmic drugs of the III class (for example amiodarone) - it is possible to strengthen cardiodepressive action.

With the combined use of ropivacaine and strong inhibitors of CYP1A2 (eg fluvoxamine), an increase in the level of ropivacaine in plasma is possible; Care should be taken.

Perhaps the interaction of ropivacaine with drugs known to be metabolized by CYP1A2 (such as theophylline and imipramine), due to competitive inhibition of metabolism.

In in vivo studies, the combined use of a selective potent inhibitor of CYP3A4-ketoconazole (100 mg twice daily for 2 days followed by infusion of ropivacaine 1 hour after ketoconazole) caused a 15% decrease in plasma clearance of ropivacaine.

Pharmaceutical interaction: increasing the pH of the solution above 6.0 can lead to the formation of precipitate due to the poor solubility of ropivacaine under these conditions.


Symptoms: impaired vision and hearing, hypotension, arrhythmia, dysarthria, increased muscle tone, muscle twitching; with the progression of intoxication: loss of consciousness, convulsions, hypoxia, hypercapnia, respiratory and metabolic acidosis, dyspnea, apnea, cardiac arrest.

Treatment: discontinuation of administration, maintenance of adequate oxygenation, relief of convulsions and convulsions (administration of thiopental 100-120 mg IV or diazepam 5-10 mg IV); if necessary, ventilator (after the onset of ventilation, suxamethonium can be administered), normalization of blood circulation, correction of acidosis; with the development of hypotension and bradycardia - the administration of ephedrine 5-10 mg IV (possibly again after 2-3 minutes).

Routes of administration


Precautions for the substance Ropivacaine

Patients with severe liver disease need to reduce repeated doses. It should be borne in mind that ropivacaine disrupts motor functions, coordination of movements and reaction speed. Therefore, after its application, a period of time after which the patient can perform work that requires increased attention is determined by the doctor.

When carrying out a prolonged blockade (infusion or repeated bolus administration), toxic concentrations of anesthetic in the blood and local nerve damage can be created.

Special instructions

Prior to the initiation of anesthesia, intravenous catheters should be installed and resuscitation equipment should be available. Before and during the injection (at a speed of 25-50 mg / min), an aspiration test (to prevent intravascular entry of a solution that can be recognized by increasing heart rate) is necessary.
