Comparison of injection pain of articaine and lidocaine in eyelid surgery. [2009.01]
PURPOSE: To compare the pain induced by tissue infiltration of lidocaine 2% with epinephrine 1:100,000 versus articaine 4% with epinephrine 1:100,000 for eyelid surgery... CONCLUSIONS: In this study, infiltration of articaine was less painful than lidocaine for eyelid surgery, making articaine an attractive alternative for local anesthesia.
The incidence of adverse reactions following 4% septocaine (articaine) in children. [2008.09]
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to report the incidence of adverse events following the use of 4% Septocaine in children...
