     The effects of weekly repeated stellate ganglion block (SGB) on the condition of 11 stable bronchial asthmatics (7 women and 4 men, aged between 40 and 63, mean 53.9) were studied. The 7 parameters adopted for assessment of the effects of SGB were as follows : 1) provisional respiratory function ; 2) ventilatory function ; 3) ventilatory response to carbon dioxide ; 4) serum levels of chemical mediators ; 5) state of the autonomic nervous system ; 6) number of necessary intravenous injections of aminophylline ; 7) patients' subjective assessment of their general condition.
     The results of repeated SGB were interpreted as follows : 1) respiratory resistance was decreased ; 2) no adverse effects on SpO2, ETCO2, tidal volume, V1.0%, minute volume and respiration rate were associated with the treatment ; 3) ventilatory response to carbon dioxide under the conditions of 59-93% oxygen concentration was not impaired ; 4) decreased serum levels of LTB4, LTC4 and histamine indicated possible reduction of bronchial hypersensitivity ; 5) enhanced regulation of the autonomic nervous system was achieved ; 6) occasions requiring aminophylline infusion therapy were reduced ; 7) patients' subjective comments.
     In conclusion, in terms of the parameters analyzed in the present study, repeated SGB can be recommended as an adjunctive approach to control of bronchial asthma.
