Anatomical context of Lorcainide hydrochloride

  • Abnormal sinus node function may be exacerbated by lorcainide treatment, however, and bundle branch block may be precipitated in patients with pre-existing conduction system disease [18].
  • Intravenous and oral lorcainide: assessment of central nervous system toxicity and antiarrhythmic efficacy [19].
  • H-V intervals, pooled H-V intervals and QRS-width lengthened in all patients, most markedly in cases with a conduction delay below the His bundle, who had received lorcainide 2.5 mg/kg [20].
  • Only minor amounts (less than 1% of the dose) of unchanged lorcainide could be recovered in urine and feces and total plasma clearance averaged 121.5 ml/min/kg [21].
  • Within 2 h the decline of these concentrations was very rapid and after 8 h lorcainide could be detected only in spleen, lung and adipose tissue [21].
