Patients suffering from acute pains from upper abdominal viscera can be cured by image-guided celiac plexus neurolysis, providing lasting pain relief to patients suffering from malignant pains due to upper abdominal viscera. When administered by qualified hands, celiac plexus neurolysis also appears to be a relatively safe procedure with limited side effect profile. Each imaging guidance system has benefits and drawbacks. When intentionally transgressing into the retroperitoneum for celiac plexus neurolysis, CT guidance is suggested over fluoroscopy. Given the ability to visualize soft-tissue structures, CT guidance is suggested over fluoroscopy.
