To relieve intractable upper abdominal cancer pain using 75% alcohol, Celiac Plexus Blocks (C.P.B.) were performed by means of the classic two needle technique in 7 cases and by single needle transaortic method in 3 cases under fluroscopic guidance. Both methods relieved the pain effectively and there was no significant hemorragic, neurologic and other complications. The degree of pain relief estimated by Graphic Rating Scale (GRS) and the incidence of complication were similar between two methods but the single needle transaortic method was more simple, easier and effective with just one third of alcohol used in the classic method.
