There are many regional techniques available to the anesthetists for upper abdominal surgery and intra-operative blockade of the celiac plexus is potentially one of the most effective methods for providing pain relief. However, it is also under-utilized. Not only does this block ensure good pain relief, it also decreases stress response, improves gut motility and post-operative pulmonary function. It is a simple and safe procedure and has the advantage of less discomfort, decrease procedure time, use of smaller volume of local anesthetic, avoids puncture of aorta and ensures proper placement of needle tip.
