Abstract

Objective: To observe the clinical efficacy of combined acupuncture and herbs in the treatment of impotence. Methods: One hundred cases of impotence were randomized into two groups: a treatment group in which 50 cases were treated with acupuncture and herbs, and a control group in which another 50 cases were treated with acupuncture alone. The treatment was given once a day and 10 treatments made up one course, with a two-day interval between each two courses. The clinical efficacy was evaluated after two courses. Results: The total effective rate was 98.0% in the treatment group and 76.0% in the control group, with a statistical difference between the two groups (P<0.01). Conclusion: Combined acupuncture and herbs has better results than simple acupuncture in the treatment of impotence.
