EUS-guided Celiac Plexus Neurolysis for the Treatment of Abdominal Pain in Pancreatic Cancer

Study Purpose

Studies have shown that injecting local anesthetics in areas rich in blood vessels increases the risk of drug injection into blood vessels by mistake and increases the systemic absorption of drugs, which may increase the incidence of central nervous system and cardiovascular system toxic events caused by local anesthetics.EUS-CPN-related complications have not been clearly associated with local anesthetic adverse events.However, EUS-CPN local anesthetic injection area is located around the beginning of the abdominal trunk with abundant large and small blood vessels. The choice of local anesthetics with higher safety than bupivacaine, such as ropivacaine, is of great significance to ensure the safety of eus-cpn, especially for eus-cpn beginners.At present, there are no reports on the application of ropivacaine in eus-cpn.

NCT03940027
Phase

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
