Abstract

Meperidine has been shown to exhibit a sensory block in peripheral nerves. However, its motor blockade ability is controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate, electroneurographically, the ability of meperidine to inhibit conduction in both sensory and motor fibres in the ulnar nerve.
