However, in clinical practice dosage is usually increased by injecting a more concentrated solution. 5%, while maintaining the same volume (10 ml), results in decreased onset time, more frequent satisfactory analgesia, and increased duration of analgesia. 75% so that the dosage increases from 100 mg to 150 mg produces more rapid onset, prolonged duration, greater frequency of satisfactory anesthesia, and enhanced depth of motor blockade (8).

The nerve sprouts emit spontaneous discharges and are responsive to mechanical, thermal and chemical stimulation. Spontaneous nerve activity also originates from the cell bodies of damaged nerves located in the dorsal root ganglia. The increase in nerve activity arising from neuromas and the dorsal root ganglia results in hyperexcitability and altered processing in the central nervous system contributing to the hyperalgesia and spontaneous pain. Thus, both tissue and nerve injury lead to prolonged changes in the nervous system.

15), showing that little direct potentiation of the cationic local anesthetic species occurs, per se. 8, respectively), which have higher pKa values. This result is consistent with an ion trapping mechanism whereby C02 acidifies the axoplasm and thereby increases the concentration of protonated local anesthetic inside the nerve fibers. 7), suggesting that the HC03 or C02 molecules interact specifically with the local anesthetic molecule or with local anesthetic binding sites in the nerve membrane.
