Splanchnic Nerve Block

The splanchnic nerves communicate pain signals from the abdominal organs (stomach, small intestine, kidneys, gall bladder, liver, pancreas, spleen and adrenal gland) to the spinal cord where they continue on to the brain. Patients suffering from cancer-related abdominal pain, chronic pancreatitis or chronic abdominal pain (non-cancer) receive pain relief from a splanchnic nerve block.
