Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To observe the therapeutic effects of electroacupuncture plus acupoint-injection for ischemic apoplexy.

METHOD:

78 cases of ischemic apoplexy were randomly divided into a treatment group of 39 cases treated by electroacupuncture plus acupoint-injection and a control group of 39 cases treated by electroacupuncture alone.

RESULTS:

The neural functional defect score (NFDS) decreased while the functional independence mark (FIM) increased with obvious significant differences before and after treatment in both of the two groups. And there were very remarkable differences between the two groups in the changes of both NFDS and FIM after treatment (P<0.01), showing better results in the treatment group than that of the control group.

CONCLUSION:

Electroacupuncture plus acupoint-injection can promote the recovery of the neural function for the ischemic apoplexy patients and markedly enhance their daily living ability, with better effects than that in patients treated by electroacupuncture alone.
