As lignocaine was not synthesised until 1943 nor introduced clinically until 1947, Corlette predominantly used procaine (also known as novocaine, ethocaine, neocaine, planocaine, kerocaine or scurocaine) which was much less toxic than cocaine and had been synthesised by Einhorn in 1904 and used clinically in 1905 (11).
