 Levobupivacaine Market

Levobupivacaine is classified as a local anesthetic drug and is the S-enantiomer of bupivacaine drug. It belongs to the amino amide group and has gained immense popularity among anesthesiologists as a local anesthetic drug owing to its less cardiotoxicity and motor blockade. It is a long-acting anesthetic drug that was developed due to a significant increase in the reported incidents of cardiac arrest and seizures associated with the use of intravascular injection of bupivacaine. The excellent pharmacokinetic properties such as the volume of distribution and rate of clearance render it safe and efficacious in comparison to other anesthetic agents such as ropivacaine and bupivacaine.
