U059 - Tumescent Lidocaine Anesthesia (TLA): Refinements and New Applications

Sunday, March 3; 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Define tumescent drug delivery.
  • Recognize potential applications of tumescent lidocaine anesthesia.
  • Determine appropriate formulations of tumescent solutions.


TLA has revolutionized dermatologic surgery, increasing the range of surgical procedures that can now be done in-office, totally by local anesthesia. We will discuss 1) the range of TLA applications, 2) refinements of TLA formulations, 3) the increasing use of TLA for non-dermatologic surgical procedures, 4) emerging applications of tumescent drug delivery (TDD) for non-surgical therapies ranging from pre-hospital care for snakebites to post-herpetic neuralgia.
