A complex network of nerve fibers including sympathetic and parasympathetic efferents and visceral afferents. The celiac plexus is the largest of the autonomic plexuses and is located in the abdomen surrounding the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries.
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Persistent pain that is refractory to some or all forms of treatment.
Interruption of NEURAL CONDUCTION in peripheral nerves or nerve trunks by the injection of a local anesthetic agent (e.g., LIDOCAINE; PHENOL; BOTULINUM TOXINS) to manage or treat pain.
A villous structure of tangled masses of BLOOD VESSELS contained within the third, lateral, and fourth ventricles of the BRAIN. It regulates part of the production and composition of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID.
Inflammation of the DUODENUM section of the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL). Erosive duodenitis may cause bleeding in the UPPER GI TRACT and PEPTIC ULCER.
The large network of nerve fibers which distributes the innervation of the upper extremity. The brachial plexus extends from the neck into the axilla. In humans, the nerves of the plexus usually originate from the lower cervical and the first thoracic spinal cord segments (C5-C8 and T1), but variations are not uncommon.
Ultrasonography of internal organs using an ultrasound transducer sometimes mounted on a fiberoptic endoscope. In endosonography the transducer converts electronic signals into acoustic pulses or continuous waves and acts also as a receiver to detect reflected pulses from within the organ. An audiovisual-electronic interface converts the detected or processed echo signals, which pass through the electronics of the instrument, into a form that the technologist can evaluate. The procedure should not be confused with ENDOSCOPY which employs a special instrument called an endoscope. The "endo-" of endosonography refers to the examination of tissue within hollow organs, with reference to the usual ultrasonography procedure which is performed externally or transcutaneously.
Sensation of discomfort, distress, or agony in the abdominal region.
A form of therapy that employs a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those experiencing pain.
Tumors or cancer of the PANCREAS. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: GLUCAGON from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the SOMATOSTATIN-SECRETING CELLS. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (INSULINOMA).
A dilation of the duodenal papilla that is the opening of the juncture of the COMMON BILE DUCT and the MAIN PANCREATIC DUCT, also known as the hepatopancreatic ampulla.
The arterial trunk that arises from the abdominal aorta and after a short course divides into the left gastric, common hepatic and splenic arteries.
The 10th cranial nerve. The vagus is a mixed nerve which contains somatic afferents (from skin in back of the ear and the external auditory meatus), visceral afferents (from the pharynx, larynx, thorax, and abdomen), parasympathetic efferents (to the thorax and abdomen), and efferents to striated muscle (of the larynx and pharynx).
An adjunctive treatment for PARTIAL EPILEPSY and refractory DEPRESSION that delivers electrical impulses to the brain via the VAGUS NERVE. A battery implanted under the skin supplies the energy.
A large vessel supplying the whole length of the small intestine except the superior part of the duodenum. It also supplies the cecum and the ascending part of the colon and about half the transverse part of the colon. It arises from the anterior surface of the aorta below the celiac artery at the level of the first lumbar vertebra.
The major nerves supplying sympathetic innervation to the abdomen. The greater, lesser, and lowest (or smallest) splanchnic nerves are formed by preganglionic fibers from the spinal cord which pass through the paravertebral ganglia and then to the celiac ganglia and plexuses. The lumbar splanchnic nerves carry fibers which pass through the lumbar paravertebral ganglia to the mesenteric and hypogastric ganglia.
INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS that is characterized by recurring or persistent ABDOMINAL PAIN with or without STEATORRHEA or DIABETES MELLITUS. It is characterized by the irregular destruction of the pancreatic parenchyma which may be focal, segmental, or diffuse.

Using fine needles (finer than 22-gauge) to remove tissue or fluid specimens from the living body for examination in the pathology laboratory and for disease diagnosis.

Effect of caffeine on neonatal splanchnic blood flow. (1/47)

Doppler ultrasound was used to study the effect of the first intravenous dose of caffeine on splanchnic haemodynamics in preterm neonates. Peak systolic velocity in the superior measenteric artery and coeliac axis was significantly reduced for 6 hours after caffeine infusion. The effect of this reduction in blood flow to the neonatal gut is not known.  (+info)

Release of nitric oxide within the coeliac plexus is involved in the organization of a gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex in the rabbit. (2/47)

1. The coeliac plexus can organize a gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex without action potentials. The involvement of the nitric oxide-cGMP pathway in this reflex was investigated in the rabbit on an in vitro preparation of the coeliac plexus connected to the stomach and duodenum. Intraluminal duodenal pressures were measured with water-filled balloons. Gastric distension inhibited duodenal motility, thus characterizing a gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex organized by the coeliac plexus. 2. L-Arginine, superfused at the coeliac plexus level, enhanced this reflex, whereas Nomega-nitro-L-arginine (L-NOARG) or 2-(4-carboxyphenyl)-4,4,5,5 tetramethylimidazoline-1-oxyl-3-oxide (carboxy PTIO) reduced or abolished it. Moreover, diethylamine/nitric oxide complex superfused at the coeliac plexus level inhibited duodenal motility in the absence of gastric distension. 3. The effects of nitric oxide were mediated through the activation of guanylyl cyclase, as 1H-[1,2,4] oxadiazolo [4,3-a] quinoxalin-1-one (ODQ) reduced or abolished the gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex, whereas zaprinast enhanced it. Moreover, 8-bromo-cGMP and cGMP, superfused at the coeliac plexus level, inhibited duodenal motility in the absence of gastric distension. 4. On the other hand, when perfused at the visceral level, L-NOARG, propranolol plus phentolamine, and guanethidine did not affect the reflex. Thus, neither nitric oxide nor noradrenaline could be the transmitters released at the muscular level to induce this reflex. 5. Our study demonstrates that the gastroduodenal inhibitory reflex, which is organized by the coeliac plexus without action potentials, is induced by the release within the plexus of nitric oxide acting on the cGMP pathway. These results provide new insights into the control of digestive motility by the prevertebral ganglia.  (+info)

Efficacy of neurolytic celiac plexus block in varying locations of pancreatic cancer: influence on pain relief. (3/47)

BACKGROUND: Neurolytic celiac plexus block (NCPB) is an effective way of treating severe pain in some patients with pancreatic malignancy. However, there are no studies to date that evaluate the effectiveness of NCPB related to the site of primary pancreas cancer. The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of NCPB in pancreatic cancer pain, depending on the location of the pancreatic tumor. METHODS: The prospective study was conducted in 50 consecutive patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The patients were categorized into two different groups depending on tumor localization: group 1: patients with the cancer of the head of the pancreas and group 2: patients with the cancer of the body and tail of the pancreas. The qualitative and quantitative pain analyses were performed before and after NCPB. The patients underwent prognostic celiac plexus block with bupivacaine, followed by neurolysis during fluoroscopic control within the next 24 h. RESULTS: After NCPB, 37 patients (74%) had effective pain relief during the first 3 months or until death. Of the 37 patients who had effective pain relief, 33 (92%) were from group 1 and 4 (29%) were from group 2. In the remaining 13 patients (3 patients from group 1 and 10 patients from group 2), pain relief after NCPB was not satisfactory. Those patients were scheduled for repeated retrocrural neurolysis during computed tomography control. Computed tomography showed massive growth of the tumor around the celiac axis with metastases. After repeated neurolysis, pain relief clinically still was not satisfactory, necessitating additional opioid treatment. CONCLUSION: In this study, unilateral transcrural celiac plexus neurolysis has been shown to provide effective pain relief in 74% of patients with pancreatic cancer pain. Neurolysis was more effective in cases with tumor involving the head of the pancreas. In the cases with advanced tumor proliferation, regardless of the technique used, the analgesic effects of NCPB were not satisfactory.  (+info)

CT-guided celiac plexus block for intractable abdominal pain. (4/47)

Treatment of intractable abdominal pain due to inoperable intraabdominal malignancy is important, and the ineffectiveness of pharmacological agents has led many investigators to recommend chemical neurolysis of the celiac ganglions as a treatment. The author describes the technique and results of celiac plexus neurolysis under CT-guidance with various approach routes, including anterior, posterior and transaortic routes. Twenty-eight patients, ranging in age from 36 to 82 years, have been treated with this procedure. All had inoperable or recurred intraabdominal malignancies and suffered from intractable upper abdominal pain and/or back pain. The author performed the procedure using absolute alcohol by an anterior approach (n=18), posterior approach (n=6) and transaortic approach (n=4). Pain was rated according to a visual analog scale before and after the procedure to gauge treatment success. No major complications occurred. Mild hypotension occurred in five patients (18%) and transient diarrhea in six patients (21%). Twenty-one (75%) of the 28 patients had some relief of pain and 17 of these patients (61%) had good relief of pain after the procedure. The results support that CT-guided celiac plexus block with alcohol is a safe and effective means of pain control in patients with intraabdominal malignancy.  (+info)

Celiac plexus block in cancer pain management. (6/47)

The neurolytic celiac plexus block (NCPB) has been recommended for pain relief in patients with upper abdominal cancer by the WHO Cancer Pain Relief Program. In this article, we review the indications, techniques, and adverse effects of NCPB based on the previous findings in the literature and our own experience of 142 NCPBs during the past 11 years. No well-validated indication criteria for the NCPB have been available from invasive trials or non-invasive pain evaluations. Thus, the procedure has been employed using comprehensive pain assessment. Several modified approaches have been described for NCPB with differences in the target space where the alcohol is injected (precrural and retrocrural) and the insertion route of the needle (posterolateral and transdiscal). We have used the retrocrural transdiscal approach because of its simplicity and safety. The efficacy of the resultant pain relief does not differ among these techniques. Therefore, whether a distinction exists between blocks of the celiac plexus and those of the splanchnic nerves is controversial. The term "peri-aortic nerve block" may better describe the feature of this neurolytic intervention. The noteworthy adverse effects of alcoholic neurolysis include regional pain, hypotension, diarrhea, hypoxemia, and acute alcoholic intoxication. Most of them are transient and controllable. The diarrhea may counteract the morphine-induced constipation. NCPB relieves visceral pain in upper abdominal cancer with no serious adverse effects. We recommend this procedure to improve the quality of life of the patients suffering from abdominal cancer pain.  (+info)

Celiac plexus block: injectate spread and pain relief in patients with regional anatomic distortions. (7/47)

BACKGROUND: The success of the neurolytic celiac plexus block, despite different approaches and methods used, depends on adequate spread of the injectate in the celiac area. This retrospective study was conducted to evaluate the patterns of alcohol spread and pain relief in patients with cancer or therapy-related anatomic distortion of the celiac area. METHODS: From 177 cancer patients who underwent computed tomography (CT)-guided single-needle neurolytic celiac plexus block via an anterior approach, a radiologist, blind to the aim of the study, retrospectively selected 105 patients with abnormal anatomy of the celiac area as judged by CT images obtained before the block. To evaluate CT patterns of neurolytic (mixed with contrast) spread, the celiac area was divided on the frontal plane into four quadrants: upper right and left and lower right and left, as related to the celiac artery. Results were expressed as the number of quadrants into which contrast spread, ie., four, three, two, or one quadrants with contrast. The patterns of contrast spread according to the number of quadrants with anatomic distortion were analyzed. Patient assessment by visual analog scale was reviewed to evaluate the degree of pain relief. Pain relief 30 days after block was considered long-lasting. Pain relief at 30 days after block was analyzed according to the number of quadrants with contrast. RESULTS: Overall, four, three, two, and one quadrants with contrast were observed in 9 (8%), 21 (20%), 49 (47%), and 26 (25%) patients, respectively. An inverse correlation was observed between the number of quadrants with anatomic distortion and the number of quadrants with contrast (P < 0.001). Long-lasting pain relief was noticed in nine of nine patients (100%; 95% confidence interval, 66-100) with contrast in four-quadrants, and in 10 of 21 patients (48%; 95% confidence interval, 26-70) with contrast in 3 quadrants (P < 0.01). None of the 75 patients with contrast in two quadrants or one quadrant experienced long-lasting pain relief. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that, using the single-needle anterior approach, the neurolytic spread in the celiac area is highly hampered by the regional anatomic alterations. It also appears that only a complete (four quadrants) neurolytic spread in the celiac area can guarantee long-lasting analgesia, and that this picture may be obtained in a very limited fraction of patients with regional anatomic alterations.  (+info)

Radical distal pancreatectomy with en bloc resection of the celiac artery, plexus, and ganglions for advanced cancer of the pancreatic body: a preliminary report on perfect pain relief. (8/47)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to report the effect of radical distal pancreatectomy with en bloc resection of the celiac artery, plexus, and ganglions for locally advanced cancer of the pancreatic body on intractable abdominal and/or back pain and to explore the histopathologic mechanism of this pain. PATIENTS: Five patients with pancreatic body cancer involving the celiac and/or common hepatic artery underwent this radical surgery intended to cure the cancer. DESIGN: A retrospective analysis was performed. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Surgical magnitude, postoperative pain control, postoperative outcome, and histopathologic findings were studied. RESULTS: Arterial reconstruction, gastrointestinal reconstruction, and blood transfusions were unnecessary. The organ deficit was limited to the distal pancreas, spleen and left adrenal gland. There was no postoperative mortality. Postoperative complications occurred in four patients, who were successfully managed with medical treatment. This led to prolonged hospital stays. The intractable preoperative abdominal and/or back pain was completely relieved immediately after surgery in all patients. Perfect pain control has been maintained from surgery to the last follow-up. Histopathologic examination of the surgical specimens revealed cancer invasion of the celiac plexus in all patients. CONCLUSIONS: This operation offers not only disease radicality but also perfect pain relief. The survival benefit has not yet been fully defined.  (+info)

Pancreatic cancer related pain can be difficult to control, even with high doses of narcotics, whose adverse effects may further impair quality of life. So EUS-CPN(endoscopic ultrasound guided celiac plexus neurolysis) is well established as an effective technique for controlling pain and reducing narcotic requirements in patients with pancreatic cancer. Recently, celiac ganglia can be visualized and accessed by endoscopic ultrasound. So it allows for direct injection into individual celiac ganglia to perform celiac ganglia neurolysis. This more precise delivery of therapeutic drug will offers the potential for enhanced efficacy and safety. To evaluate this hypothesis, this randomized controlled trial aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of EUS-CGN(Endoscopic ultrasound guided celiac ganglia neurolysis) vs. Bilateral EUS-CPN(Endoscopic ultrasound guided celiac plexus neurolysis) in providing relief from pancreas cancer-related pain ...

Following up on Celiac Awareness Month, Id like to share something I learned many years ago in my cadaver lab. Youve heard the term solar plexus, right? Well, its not called the solar plexus, its the CELIAC plexus. A plexus is a intricate network of nerves or vessels in the body. The following was taken directly from my Principles of Anatomy and Physiology textbook: The celiac plexus is found at the last thoracic and first lumbar vertebrae. It is the largest autonomic plexus and surrounds the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries. It contains two large celiac ganglia and a dense network of autonomic axons. Secondary plexuses that arise from the celiac plexus are distributed to the liver, gallbladder, stomach, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, medulla (inner region) of the adrenal gland, testes, and ovaries.. Doesnt that sound like this celiac plexus thingy-ma-bob has an important role? Like maybe keeping us alive?. Then how come so many people in the healthcare profession (including doctors) ...
The celiac plexus is also called the solar plexus. It is a complex network of nerves located in the abdomen, where the celiac artery, superior mesenteric artery, and renal arteries branch from the abdominal aorta. This network of nerves is formed by the splanchnic nerves and the right vagus nerve and comprises the portion of the autonomic nervous system that operates the abdominal organs.
The prognosis for patients with pancreatic cancer is poor, with a 5-year survival rate of only 6%.[4] Most patients have inoperable disease at the time of diagnosis and are referred for palliative care.[2] In addition to the poor survival statistics, patients are often faced with severe, unrelenting abdominal pain. The primary mechanisms for this pain are pancreatic duct obstruction and neuropathy.[2] Approximately 80% of patients with pancreatic cancer experience pain, and half require strong opioids for pain control.[2] When analgesics are insufficient, the next step in palliative pain management is generally CPN.. CPN is a highly effective method of pain management for patients with pancreatic cancer. About 70-90% of patients experience complete or partial pain relief following CPN that lasts until their time of death.[3] It is generally considered a safe procedure, with serious complications being rare.[1,5,6] Common complications include transient back pain, diarrhea, and orthostatic ...

This is the first reported case of acute steroid-induced psychosis caused by EUS-guided CPB. While steroid-induced psychosis after administration of systemic corticosteroids has been extensively reported since the introduction of corticosteroids in the early 1950s, psychosis from regional administration is much more rare.4 Episodes of acute psychosis following epidural, intramuscular, and intraarticular corticosteroid administration have been reported.5-7 To our knowledge, only two cases of acute psychosis following regional CPB have been reported.8 In both of these cases, the patients received an anesthesiologist-administered CPB with triamcinolone via a posterior approach under fluoroscopic guidance. Additionally, both patients also had a known history of steroid-induced psychosis from previous systemic corticosteroid administration.. The pathophysiology by which corticosteroids cause psychosis is not fully understood. Suppression of the hypothalamus-pituitary axis and enhanced dopamine ...

The superior mesenteric plexus is a continuation of the lower part of the celiac plexus, receiving a branch from the junction of the right vagus nerve with the plexus. It surrounds the superior mesenteric artery, accompanies it into the mesentery, and divides into a number of secondary plexuses, which are distributed to all the parts supplied by the artery, viz., pancreatic branches to the pancreas; intestinal branches to the small intestine; and ileocolic, right colic, and middle colic branches, which supply the corresponding parts of the great intestine. The nerves composing this plexus are white in color and firm in texture; in the upper part of the plexus close to the origin of the superior mesenteric artery is the superior mesenteric ganglion.

The aim of the work presented in this thesis is to characterize enteric viscerofugal neurons. This population of neurons have their cell bodies in the gut wall and axons that project to prevertebral ganglia, via mesenteric/colonic nerve trunks. Their connections with sympathetic neurons form inhibitory reflex loops that can control gut motility and secretion. Identified electrophysiological recordings were made from the axons viscerofugal neurons, for the first time. These were accomplished by maintaining isolated preparations of guinea pig distal colon in organ culture. Over 4-6 days, organ culture resulted in a selective loss of extrinsic nerves. This allowed unimpeded recordings of viscerofugal neurons from colonic nerves. Viscerofugal neurons were also identified in fresh preparations using the nicotinic agonist, DMPP. Sites on preparations where focal DMPP-ejections evoked bursts of firing recorded from colonic nerves were strongly associated with viscerofugal nerve cell bodies, revealed by ...

The main problem of chronic pancreatitis is managing the chronic pain. When pharmacological means fail, ablative procedures like coeliac plexus ablation or bilateral splanchnicectomy becomes necessary. These procedures are designed based on anatomy. Pancreatic duct and common bile duct obstruction are known complications of chronic pancreatitis and methods of treatment are essentially based on interpretation of images. We present a case history of a patient with chronic pancreatitis who underwent bilateral thoracoscopic splanchnicectomy and later laparoscopic cholecysto-jejunostomy for common bile duct obstruction. The importance of anatomy in diagnosis and treatment are highlighted ...
Supplement The coeliac ganglion pertains to any of the two large clusters of nerve fibers located on the superior portion of the abdominal aorta, close to where the coeliac artery emerges from the aorta. Prevertebral ganglia are closely associated with the major ventral branches of the aorta. Hence, these ganglia are usually found near the origin of celiac artery (as celiac ganglion), and of the superior and inferior mesenteric arteries (as superior and inferior mesenteric ganglia, respectively). They contain neurons with postganglionic axons innervating the stomach, the gallbladder, the liver, the spleen, the small intestine, parts of colon, and the kidney. These ganglia are part of the sympathetic subdivision of the autonomic nervous system. They are regarded as the largest ganglia in the autonomic nervous system. They are thin, crescent-shaped sensory root ganglia of the trigeminal nerve. ...

Before surgery you will have some blood tests to check that your blood is clotting correctly, among other things. You will be admitted to hospital an hour or two before surgery. You should not eat or drink anything for 6 hours before this. This operation is performed frequently by neurosurgeons, and is known as an ulnar neurolysis. It involves making a small incision, or cut, over the inside of the elbow. Using magnification, your surgeon will carefully divide the band of tissue which is constricting the nerve. Sometimes there is significant scar tissue around the nerve, and this is also divided. Removal of a small amount of bone (medial epicondylectomy) and/or repositioning of the nerve itself (ulnar transposition) are rarely required, and usually only in the context of a failed neurolysis procedure or significant elbow deformity.. An ulnar neurolysis typically takes 20-40 minutes, and dissolving sutures are generally used. This procedure is usually under a light general anaesthetic, and the ...
This study reveals a novel ENS-derived mechanism by which sympathetic gut reflexes are activated. In this mechanism, the rhythmic ENS-generated firing pattern that underlies CMCs and drives characteristic rhythmic electrical activity in smooth muscle (Spencer et al., 2018) is also transmitted to prevertebral ganglia by viscerofugal neurons. Thus, sympathetic reflexes accompany CMC generation. Reflex activation did not require muscle contraction or dynamic changes in gut wall circumference. Importantly, the ∼2-Hz burst firing pattern underlying CMCs coordinated firing of multiple viscerofugal neurons, causing activation of sympathetic neurons with a similar 2-Hz firing pattern, even without central preganglionic input. Viscerofugal neurons predominantly supply subthreshold synaptic inputs to sympathetic neurons. Thus, the synchronizing mechanism provided by the ENS that enables assemblies of viscerofugal neurons to fire concurrently may be critical for their ability to evoke parallel firing in ...

The blood pressure in blood vessels is traditionally expressed in millimetres of mercury (1 mmHg = 133 Pa). In the arterial system, this is usually around 120 mmHg systolic (high pressure wave due to contraction of the heart) and 80 mmHg diastolic (low pressure wave). In contrast, pressures in the venous system are constant and rarely exceed 10 mmHg. Vascular resistance occurs where the vessels away from the heart oppose the flow of blood. Resistance is an accumulation of three different factors: blood viscosity, blood vessel length, and vessel radius.[2] Blood viscosity is the thickness of the blood and its resistance to flow as a result of the different components of the blood. Blood is 92% water by weight and the rest of blood is composed of protein, nutrients, electrolytes, wastes, and dissolved gases. Depending on the health of an individual, the blood viscosity can vary (i.e. anemia causing relatively lower concentrations of protein, high blood pressure an increase in dissolved salts or ...

The spinal trigeminal nucleus is a nucleus in the medulla that receives information about deep/crude touch, pain, and temperature from the ipsilateral face. In addition to the trigeminal nerve (CN V), the facial (CN VII), glossopharyngeal (CN IX), and vagus nerves (CN X) also convey pain information from their areas to the spinal trigeminal nucleus.[1] Thus the spinal trigeminal nucleus receives input from cranial nerves V, VII, IX, and X. The spinal nucleus is composed of three subnuclei: subnucleus oralis (pars oralis), subnucleus caudalis (pars caudalis), and subnucleus interpolaris (pars interpolaris). The subnucleus oralis is associated with the transmission of discriminative (fine) tactile sense from the orofacial region, and is continuous with the principal sensory nucleus of V. The subnucleus interpolaris is also associated with the transmission of tactile sense, as well as dental pain, whereas the subnucleus caudalis is associated with the transmission of nociception and thermal ...
