Animation:


.A celiac plexus block procedure is an injection performed to reduce abdominal pain caused by cancer, chronic pancreatitis or adhesions. The celiac plexus block procedure is an injection of local anesthetic that is used to block the celiac plexus nerves that transmit pain signals from your abdomen to your brain. The celiac plexus block procedure can be performed as a diagnostic test or a treatment. Although uncommon, risks for the celiac plexus block procedure may include injury to major blood vessels, nerve roots, kidneys or lungs.
