Celiac plexus block with neurolytic agents is widely recommended for the management of intraabdominal pain due to malignant disease as a simple, asafe and effective method. We performed neurolytic celia: plexus block with 60% ethanol in lidocaine in 8 patients: with gastric cancer(4), hepatoma(2), pancreatic cancer(1), and chronic pancreatitis(1). Good to excellent pain relief was obtained in the 2 hepatoma cases, 1 pancreatic cancer, and a gastric cancer patient. In one patient with gastirc cancer, analgesia lasted for about 3 months but the second block was entirely unsatisfactory. The result was uncertain in one patient with chronic pancreatitis because the pain was non-specific and responded even to saline solution(placebo). In the remaing 2 patients, the result was entirely negative and eventually, epidural morphine was given periodically through an indwelling catheter.
