Twelve cases of cord injury with intractable spasticity were treated by intrathecal alcohol block. All the cases had complete paraplegia of more than 18 months duration. Four patients had severe abdominal spasms. Duration of spasticity varied from 8 to 25 months. Alcohol block produced immediate and permanent relief in spasticity in all except one patient in a follow up period of 9 to 30 months. The bladder capacity improved and surgery for bed sores became possible. The guidelines and procedure are presented.
