Intractable pain from nonresectable or recurrent cancer of upper abdominal organs has been treated in many ways. We chose the method of 50% alcohol celiac plexus block for the pain relief. The results were as follows: 1) It is relatively simple, highly effective, and a less hazardous means of palliative therapy. 2) Satisfactory pain relief was seen in 11 cases (91.7%), excluding 1 case (8.3%) with no improvement in hospitalization state. We concluded this block is remarkably safe as well as effective and should be employed more frequently.
