What is Celiac Plexus Block?
A celiac plexus block procedure is an injection performed to reduce abdominal pain. This pain is usually caused by cancer, chronic pancreatitis or adhesions. An injection of local anesthetic is used to block the celiac plexus nerves that transmit pain signals from your abdomen to your brain.
Celiac Plexus pain is often experienced by people who have adhesions, cancer or chronic pancreatitis. The Celiac Plexus (also referred to as the solar plexus) are a complex network of nerves surrounding your aorta. The aorta is important in that it is the main artery encapsulating your abdomen.
