Celiac Plexus Block is a medical procedure used to manage chronic abdominal pain caused by conditions such as pancreatic cancer, chronic pancreatitis, or other abdominal malignancies. The celiac plexus is a complex network of nerves located in the abdomen that transmits pain signals from the abdominal organs to the brain.
During a celiac plexus block, a local anesthetic, such as lidocaine or bupivacaine, is injected into the celiac plexus to temporarily disrupt the transmission of pain signals. This can provide significant pain relief and improve the quality of life for individuals suffering from chronic abdominal pain.
