Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to procaine base (CAS RN 59-46-1). Procaine hydrochloride has vasodilator activity and is indicated for use as a local anesthetic and has been used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks, and spinal block. It has also been used in cardioplegic solutions to protect the myocardium during cardiac surgery. Procaine acts mainly by inhibiting sodium influx through voltage gated sodium channels in the neuronal cell membrane of peripheral nerves. When the influx of sodium is interrupted, an action potential cannot arise and signal conduction is thus inhibited.
