Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To observe the curative effect of Zishengukang Pill (see text) on delayed union of fracture.

METHODS:

Sixty-four patients with delayed union of fracture were randomly divided into a control group of 32 cases treated with Western medicine and a treatment group of 32 cases treated with Western medicine and Zishengukang Pill. After 3 courses of treatment with 30 days as a course, the curative effects in the two groups were evaluated and their clinical symptoms, union rate and union time of fracture were compared.

RESULTS:

The treatment resulted in cure in 25 cases, improvement in 6 cases and ineffectiveness in 1 case with the effective rate at 96.8% in the treatment group, higher than 81.3% in the control group (P < 0.05). The union rate of fracture in the treatment group was higher than that in the control group (34.3% vs. 12.5%, P < 0.05). The union time of fracture in the treatment group was shorter than that in the control group ((4.0 +/- 1.7) months vs. (5.0 +/- 1.4) months, P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION:

Zishengukang Pill with obvious curative effect in the treatment of delayed union of fracture is worth popularizing.
