To describe the reality of clinical use for Kudiezi injection based on analyzing hospital information system from 18 hospitals in China.


Descriptive statistic methods were used in the analysis of 24 225 cases.


Patients using Kuediezi injection were mainly between 46 years old to 65 years old and there was a gender balance. Kuediezi injection was used most in neurology department and department of cardiology to treat coronary heart diseases and cerebral infarction. Patients who had Chinese medicine diagnosis were most about "Xiongbi"with syndrome qi-yin deficiency, and also more patients with syndrome qi-yin stagnation were treated by Kudiezi injection. The dosage of using Kudiezi was between 10 to 40 mL and treating course was between 1 to 3 days, with 0.9% sodium chloride.


Although most of the patients received a right treatment of Kudiezi injection in clinical practice, there is still using Kudiezi injection for some diseases not on its drug instruction. We must remind those doctors who should be careful of using Kudiezi injection treating other diseases not on the instruction. This is just a retrospective and descriptive study, so prospective studies need to be developed in future to validate the results from this study.
