Abstract

It is a commonly held belief that the use of succinylcholine for induction in cases with open globe injuries is contraindicated. Having found no evidence for extrusion of vitreous with the use of succinylcholine in open globe injuries in recent medical literature, the authors have traced the origins of this teaching in anesthesia.
