Abstract

The large use of double block of sciatic and femoral nerves (bibloc) with high mepivacaine 2% doses (10 mg/kg) has pointed out some cases of toxicity. We found a relationship between shiver and mepivacaine arterious plasma levels higher than 6 micrograms/ml. These symptoms were self-limited and statistically not significant.
