Figure 2: (a) Fluoroscopically guided procedure of continuous stellate ganglion block— the needle is accurately placed anterolaterally to the C7 vertebral body, near the right-sided cervicothoracic ganglion, using the anterior tubercle of the C6 vertebral as a landmark to find the ganglion. Contrast injection has been useful for the tracking of the local anesthetic down the prevertebral fascia to the stellate ganglion below (black arrow). (b) The microcatheter (white arrow) has been correctly placed near the ganglion to guarantee the continuous stellate ganglion block through the infusion of local anesthetic for at least 5 days
