Abstract

Objective: To investigate the clinical effect of Stomach Three-needle acupuncture in the treatment of postoperative gastroparesis syndrome (PGS). Methods: 40 patients with postoperative gastroparesis syndrome were randomized into the treatment group and control group, with 20 patients in each group. Total effective rate in each group was observed after treatment and the scores of main clinical symptoms and corresponding difference were compared before and after treatment. Results: After 2 weeks of treatment, the total effective rate of the treatment group and the control group was 85 and 55%, respectively. Clinical symptom scores were improved compared with the same group before and after the treatment, and great significance was observed between the two groups (P< 0.01). The comparisons of clinical symptom score difference in two groups showed very obvious significance before and after treatment (P < 0.01). Conclusion: Stomach Three-needle Acupuncture combined with Mosapride could effectively treat postoperative gastroparesis syndrome.
