Effect of Stellate Ganglion Block Treatment on Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms – A Randomized Clinical Trial

After years of research, Dr. Lipov’s treatment has been proven – by a now-published clinical trial – to make “a significant difference” for veterans with PTSD.

From the article: 
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.

Treating PTSD with the Stellate Ganglion Block with Navy Veteran Meriwether Ball

 

Story from VeteranOnTheMove.com

25 February 2019

Meriwether Ball, USMC historian and journalist, has provided pro-bono public affairs effort for Dr. Eugene Lipov since her successful treatment, relieving her of 50 years of symptoms.  Dr. Eugene Lipov is the pioneering anesthesiologist who developed the Lipov Block, the stellate ganglion block for treatment of PTSD.

I don’t have flashbacks, nightmares anymore and I have to tell you that it was so unfamiliar.  The first thing I said, Greg asked me how do I feel and I said, it’s so noisy in here. He said that’s something, a lot of people who have had the block experience that the noise in your head is so loud.  I didn’t realize that flashbacks had audio. – Meriwether Ball

U.S. Marines (and others) From a New Angle

Writing about Marines has been my thing for the last 20 years.

Now I am writing about leading-from-the-front Marines (and others) whose lives have been saved.

They have had their post-traumatic stress symptoms removed or greatly diminished because Dr. Eugene Lipov performed the stellate ganglion block – a ridiculously simple little procedure – on them.

It cured my 50 years battle with PTS, and it has cured hundreds of service members.

He developed this decades-old procedure for PTS, and he is the master.

Of course I continue to think about the unsung Marines who received the top medals, and my book series Great Marines is still alive.

Now I need to use my pen to save Marines’ lives by telling the stories of those who heard about Lipov, reached out, flew to Chicago, and had their world improve immeasureably.

Let’s do this y’all. Let’s hear the stories of these extraordinary souls, and lets save some lives.

Semper fidelis,

Meriwether Ball
