Celiac Plexus Block

Celiac Plexus Block
Celiac Plexus Block

The Celiac Plexus is a nest of nerves within the upper abdomen area near the aorta. These nerves help control basic nerve function, so the Celiac Plexus Block is performed to help alleviate upper abdominal pain and restore that function. It helps treat Chronic Pancreatitis and other kinds of Chronic abdominal pain. This Injection process can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes.

A needle is injected into the skin and deeper tissues with the help of a local anesthetic. Once the needle is in the proper position, a local anesthetic, epinephrine, clonidine, or steroid medication is injection. The duration of pain relief tends to improve after each injection, normally lasting a few days.
