Abstract

Cocaine is a commonly abused drug that acts as a powerful stimulant. It accounts for over half of illicit drugrelated visits to the emergency room, with cardiovascular events being the most common cause of death. Few specific treatments for cocaine-related cardiovascular complications are available, but b-adrenergic receptor antagonists and lignocaine should be used with caution.
