CT NERVE BLOCK CELIAC PLEXUS 77012
CT NERVE BLOCK CELIAC PLEXUS 64530
The physician injects the celiac plexus with an anesthetic to block sympathetically mediated or visceral pain. Anesthesia is provided with or without radiologic monitoring.
64680 – celiac plexus neurolysis , 77012
The physician destroys the celiac plexus by applying a neurolytic agent to the celiac plexus. The celiac plexus is a network of nervous tissue that mediates sympathetic pain from the abdomen. This neurolytic block is often performed for pain relief of unresectable cancer in the upper abdomen. The celiac plexus is destroyed usually by chemodenervation, injecting phenol or alcohol to paralyze the network of nervous tissue. This procedure may be performed with or without radiologic monitoring, but is normally performed under CT guidance.
This is my suggestion I am not dealing with nerve block.
