In this study, we investigated whether the addition of epinephrine to tetracaine modulates these events.
The addition of epinephrine to tetracaine sustained large concentrations of glutamate.
These results suggest that the addition of epinephrine to tetracaine may increase its neurotoxicity, which may possibly be related to a sustained increase of glutamate concentrations in the CSF.
