|Actual Study Completion Date :||December 2008|
Active Comparator: Neurolysis
Patients will undergo EUS followed by EUS-guided, bilateral neurolysis with bupivicaine and absolute alcohol.
Procedure: EUS-guided celiac plexus neurolysis
Injection of 20cc of absolute alcohol + 10c of 0.5% bupivicaine on either side of the celiac axis.
No Intervention: Conventional therapy
EUS will be performed with no celiac plexus neurolysis.
- Absolute and relative changes in 7-point Likert-score for abdominal pain at 1 and 3 months post-randomization. Secondary endpoints were change in morphine equivalent consumption (MEQ), quality of life (DDQ-15), and overall survival. [ Time Frame: 1 month, 3 months ]
- 2. Quality of life 3. Survival [ Time Frame: 1 month, 3 months and until death ]
