ABSTRACTLidocaine’s mechanism of action, as the other local anesthetics, is the blockade of Sodium channels from the cellular membrane in the peripheric sensitive neurons. This blockage, does not allow the movement of Sodium and Potassium through the receptors, therefore, it stops the nervous conduction. In the last few years, new properties of lidocaine have been discovered, and some of them are really different from the classic local anesthetic properties. Until now, these properties have not been described and analyzed, so the objective of this revision is to group this knowledge, both the recent discoveries and the classic previous information.
