Abstract

Objective: To observe the therapeutic effects of puncturing the lower He-Sea points in treatment of functional gastrointestinal disorder after gallstone removal surgery. Methods: Forty post-surgery patients were randomly allocated to two groups by stratified sampling, 20 in each group. The treatment group was given conventional post-surgery treatment as well as acupuncture at the lower He-Sea points of stomach, large intestine, small intestine and gallbladder; the control group only received conventional treatment. Result: Compared to the control group, it took a shorter time for the treatment group to restore the gastrointestinal function and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Conclusion: Acupuncture at lower He-Sea points can shorten the healing process of gastro-intestinal function after gallstone removal surgery.
