Corning was under the mistaken impression that the interspinal blood vessels communicated with those of the spinal cord, and his intention was to inject cocaine into the minute interspinal vessels and have it carried by communicating vessels into the spinal cord. He made no mention of cerebrospinal fluid, nor of how far he introduced the needle into the spinal space. 13 Section I - Development of Regional Anesthesia Chapter 1 - Historical Aspects of Regional Anesthesia It fell to Heinrich Quincke to perform the first lumbar puncture.

If it were delivered to the spinal region, it could be absorbed and carried to the affected area, having a much greater effect, like that of strychnine when it was injected in the same way. His first subject was a dog. Corning injected cocaine below the spinous processes of two of the inferior dorsal vertebrae. After a few minutes, the dog’s hindquarters became paralyzed. A short while later, he tried the same technique on a young man with seminal incontinence. The young man received 2 mL of a 3% solution of the hydrochloride of cocaine between the spinous processes of T11–12.

Numerous modifications of procaine have since been developed, but it is still a valuable anesthetic in many cases. [87] [88] When the final steps in the synthesis of cocaine had been taken by Willstätter and his collaborators, the former also succeeded in synthesizing a number of its numerous optical isomers. These were studied pharmacologically by who found the dextrorotatory cocaine (with cis-transisometry) to be somewhat less toxic than the Gottlieb, natural product, probably because the “unnatural” isomers are often metabolized more rapidly than those occurring in nature.
