What is a Splanchnic Plexus Block?

A Splanchnic Plexus Block is a medication injection that can alleviate upper abdominal pain, typically associated with cancer or chronic pancreatitis. The splanchnic nerves, located on both sides of the spine, transmit pain signals from organs in the abdomen to the brain.
