Stellate Ganglion & T2/3 Sympathetic Blocks



Dr. Kenneth Chapman describes the stellate ganglion and T2/3 sympathetic block at the 24th Annual Gabor Racz Pain Conference and Workshop. The sympathetic nervous system is critically tied to the stellate ganglion. Because of this, there are many indications for stellate ganglion blockade, from frost bite to post-traumatic stress disorder. However, there are potential complications to be aware of, such as infection. There are also several different approaches to stellate ganglion block, included ultrasound guided. T2-T3 sympathetic block is also touched on here.
