  3. Describe the cervical lateral chain.
  4. What does sympathetically mediated pain involve (CRPS)?
  5. Blocking what plexus is indicated in treatment of intraabdominal malignancies & chronic pancreatitis; diagnostic (local or therapeutic (neurolytic block)?

5 True/False questions

  3. What occurs with sympathetically mediated pain?There is a sensitization of peripheral (C-fibers) & central (dorsal horn laminae 1& 2).


  4. What are the target organs of the inferior mesenteric ganglion?Lower colon & rectum
