Superior Hypogastric block

Superior Hypogastric block is a procedure used to reduce symptoms of chronic pelvic pain. This is a diagnostic test primarily, but it may provide relief far in excess of the duration of the anesthetic. A local skin anesthetic is given in the lower lumbar area of the back. A needle is then inserted into the back under fluoroscopy next to the lower lumbar vertebral body. The block may be performed on both sides of the spine. An anesthetic medication will be injected into the area.
