Complications: Potential side effects of neurolytic blocks can be severe and dangerous and include neuritis and worsening pain from the dead nerve. This is called deafferentation pain. Motor deficits can also be seen when mixed nerves are targeted, and since a liquid is used unintentional damage to nontargeted tissue can also occur. All of these lists are explained for the specific block for the specific person that will be receiving it and they differ depending upon the block and the problem. Many of these blocks are reserved for patients with cancer.
