To explore the role of Tong Mai Tang & Lornoxicam on the serum concentrations of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin (IL-6) , D-dipolymer( D-Di), Platelet count (PLC) in treatment of femoral shaft fracture among period surgery time.


We selected 120 cases of traumatic femoral shaft fracture patients according to the inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria, which were randomized dividend into four groups (I, II, III, IV respectively) of the same size based on the random number table method of 30 patients each. Therapeutic methods of four groups following as: Group I, Tpanax Notoginseng Pills PO; Group II, Tpanax Notoginseng Pills PO, Lornoxicam For Injection, 8 mg IM; Group III, Tpanax Notoginseng Pills PO, Tong Mai Decoctions 200 mL PO; Group IV, Tpanax Notoginseng Pills PO, Lornoxicam For Injection 8 mg IM, Tong Mai Decoctions 200 mL PO. The above medications were administered to the four groups after admission to hospital the next day. Peripheral blood samples were taken for immune determination of pro-inflammatory cytokines of TNF-alpha, IL-6, D-Di, PLC in blood serum on the 2nd and 6th day before operation and on the 8th and 13th day after operation in the morning. And all patients received liver and kidney function examination 2nd and 13th day after admission. Analysis of variance and least significant difference-test were done with the help of SPSS 17.0 statistic software.


The difference among four groups in TNF-alpha and IL-6 were significant (P < 0.05). And there were also significant statistic difference between group II/III/IV and group I group (P < 0.05). But the difference between group II and group III was insignificant (P > 0.05). However, the group contrast result between group IV and group II/III had statistics difference (P < 0.05). The difference in D-Di PLC at 6th day and 8th day were significant (P < 0.05). The group comparisons in group I/II/IV were also significant. There were non-statistics significance in group II compared 6th day/8th day with 2nd day (P > 0.05). The comparison between the 13th day with the first three time sections had statistics significance. And there were statistics significance at the 13th day between group IV and group II (P < 0.05).


The serum concentrations of TNF-alpha, IL-6, D-Di and PLC level were significantly increased in peroperative period, These results seem to indicate that the Tong Mai Decoctions & Lornoxicam may play an important role in inhibiting the release of TNF-alpha, IL-6, D-Di and PLC into the blood stream and decreasing the incunabula complication at early traumatic stage. The Tong Mai Decoctions & Lornoxicam was the worth promoting screened China and the West union medication combination.
