Abstract

Evaluation of the Efficacy of Intra-Operative Celiac Plexus Block on Post-Operative Analgesia, Stress Response, Gut Motility and Pulmonary Function in Upper Abdominal Surgery: A Double-Blind Randomized Study

Celiac plexus block (CPB) is an effective method of providing intra-abdominal visceral analgesia. It also decreases the post-operative surgical stress response, enhance gut motility, and improve pulmonary function. We observed the effects of intra-operative CPB with wound infiltration on post-operative analgesia, surgical stress response, gut motility and pulmonary function following upper abdominal surgery (UAS) in a prospective double blind randomized study.
