[Acupuncture in breast diseases. How, when and why].

[Article in Italian]


We can value the therapeutic result reached by acupuncture in 43 female patients suffering from mastodinies, compared with other similar groups treated with antinflammatories and polyvitaminics. Before and after treatment every patient went through a complete--clinical--instrumental examination in which we also valued with telethermography the condition of mastosic vascular congestion. Positive considerations are made about the therapeutic validity of acupunture that has reached the highest percentage of success (over 95%) in comparison with other traditional methods, and patients really appreciated that. We nevertheless emphasize the need of always associating a correct, objective and instrumental study before starting any mastalgies therapy, to exclude coexistence of a sort of productive or surgical pathology.
