Translated title of the contribution: Endosonography-guided celiaca plexus neurolysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Celiac plexus neurolysis is an effective technique for the treatment of pancreatic cancer pain and chronic pancreatitis pain. EUS-guide neurolysis (EUS-CPN) is simple to perform and has less side effects than the transabdominal procedure thanks to its endoabdominal approach. Celiac ganglia is easily visualized at EUS: a needle is positioned inside the ganglia and chemical neurolysis is carried out with Bupivacaina and absolute ethanol.
