Summary

In this procedure, the provider performs a nerve block on the stellate ganglion, called the cervicothoracic ganglion, which is part of the sympathetic nervous system. Blocking pain from the nerve effectively treats pain located in upper extremities, head, neck, and heart, which various conditions cause. It is done primarily to reduce symptoms from type I complex regional pain syndrome, known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
