Abstract

Forty-six cases of multiple infarct dementia (MID) in the treatment group were treated by acupuncture with the principle of supplementing the inferiority to clear the superiority and regulating spirit to invigorate intelligence. Changes of the blood lipid content, hemorheological indexes and nail fold microcirculation in the treatment group were compared with those in the randomly assigned control group. The data collected showed that the changes in the treatment group were remarkable, and part of them were superior to their counterparts obtained in the control group by statistical analysis. It is indicated that acupuncture can effectively regulate the affected hemodynamic state in MID
