Abstract

Knowledge of local anesthesia is critically important to perform dermatological surgery. Local anesthetics when used judiciously are extremely safe and allow dermatologists to perform a variety of procedures. This article aims to provide an updated review of local anesthesia and local anesthetic drugs. Side effects of local anesthetics and techniques of regional anesthesia are discussed and some commonly used nerve blocks are explained. A detailed knowledge of the pharmacology of local anesthetics aids in optimal therapeutic use, and in prevention, early diagnosis and management of their toxicities by the clinician.
