The purpose of this study is to compare the efficiency and safety of 2ml versus 5ml of local anesthetics used in stellate ganglion blocks for the treatment of complex regional pain syndrome of the arm.
To evaluate if 2ml of 0.2% ropivacaine is less effective in decreasing pain scores by more than 50% when compared to 5ml of 0.2% ropivacaine. To evaluate if 2ml of 0.2% ropivacaine is causes less side effects when compared to 5ml after a stellate ganglion block.

We commend Park and colleagues for investigating and presenting data to improve the safety of a potentially high-risk procedure . We agree that the contralateral head-turn is the optimal position when...
Cerebral vasospasm (CV) is a delayed, sustained contraction of the cerebral arteries that tends to occur 3-14 days after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) from a ruptured aneurysm. Vasospasm p...
New-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) is frequently observed following acute stroke. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the brain-stellate ganglion-atrium network on AF vulnerability...
A paravertebral sympathetic ganglion formed by the fusion of the inferior cervical and first thoracic ganglia.
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
Method of treating pain associated with the sphenopalatine ganglion located in the PTERYGOPALATINE FOSSA, posterior to the middle nasal turbinate. The transnasal approach involves application of suitable local anesthetic to the mucous membrane overlying the ganglion.
The sensory ganglion of the facial (7th cranial) nerve. The geniculate ganglion cells send central processes to the brain stem and peripheral processes to the taste buds in the anterior tongue, the soft palate, and the skin of the external auditory meatus and the mastoid process.
The sensory ganglion of the COCHLEAR NERVE. The cells of the spiral ganglion send fibers peripherally to the cochlear hair cells and centrally to the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM.
Pain is a feeling (sharp or dull) triggered in the nervous system which can be transient or constant. Pain can be specific to one area of the body eg back, abdomen or chest or more general all over the body eg muscles ache from the flu. Without pain ...
