Key Points

Question  How does stellate ganglion block compare with sham treatment in reducing the severity of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms over 8 weeks?

Findings  In this sham-controlled randomized clinical trial, 2 stellate ganglion block treatments 2 weeks apart were effective in reducing Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale for DSM-5 total symptom severity scores over 8 weeks. The adjusted mean symptom change was −12.6 points for the group receiving stellate ganglion blocks, compared with −6.1 points for those receiving sham treatment, a significant difference.

Meaning  Stellate ganglion block treatment warrants further study as a posttraumatic stress disorder treatment adjunct.
