  Abstract Objective: To observe the clinical efficacy of acupuncture for vasular cognitive disorder following a cerebral infarction. Methods: A total of 90 cases were randomly allocated into an observation group and a control group. In addition to the cognitive training and the routine rehabilitation exercise for the paralyzed limb, special needling techniques were employed in the observation group, versus electroacupuncture in the control group. After a session of 4-week treatment, the outcomes were assessed and analyzed using mini-mental state examination (MMSE), clock drawing test (CDT), delayed story recall (DSR) and functional ability questionnaire (FAQ). Results: There were statistical significances (P<0.05) in the scores between before and after treatment in the observation group. Also, there were statistical significances (P<0.05) in between the observation group and the control group after the treatment. Conclusion: The special needling method in this study could obtain better therapeutic efficacy than electroacupuncture for vascular cognitive disorder.
