11/11. central nervous system toxicity attributable to epidural ropivacaine hydrochloride.Ropivacaine, a new local anaesthetic agent, has been demonstrated to have less potential than bupivacaine for central nervous system toxicity on the basis of human and animal studies. We report a case of a convulsion secondary to presumed inadvertent intravascular injection of 20 mg of ropivacaine in a 44 kg patient during an epidural for chronic pain. There were minimal signs of cardiovascular toxicity.
