  Abstract Abstract Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of acupuncture as a treatment for chronic shoulder pain and to compare the efficacy of individualized acupuncture to fixed, standard point acupuncture treatment. Design: The study was a single-blind randomized, controlled trial. Settings/Location: The study was conducted in an outpatient rheumatology clinic at the VA Medical Center of Philadelphia. Subjects: The participants were adults with shoulder pain for at least 8 weeks with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis or rotator cuff tendonitis and a total Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI) score of >/=30. Interventions: Thirty-one (31) subjects were randomized to one of three treatment groups: individualized acupuncture points according to the approaches of Traditional Chinese Medicine; fixed, standard acupuncture points conventionally used for shoulder pain; and sham nonpenetrating acupuncture. Subjects received 12 treatments over 6 weeks and were reassessed using the SPADI at the end of the 6 weeks. Outcome measures: The primary outcome evaluated was the mean change in total SPADI score in each group from baseline to 6 weeks. Results: After 6 weeks of treatment, the mean total SPADI score improved in all three groups, but the change was clinically significant (>/=10 points) only in groups 1 and 2 (-20.3 and -20.4, respectively, versus -6.5 in group 3). The treatment effects of groups 1 and 2 compared to the sham acupuncture group were -13.8 (95% confidence interval: -2.2 to -25.4, p < 0.015) and -13.9 (-2.0 to -25.8, p < 0.013), respectively. There was no difference between the individualized acupuncture and standardized acupuncture treatments. Conclusions: Acupuncture may be an effective treatment for chronic shoulder pain. There may be no difference in efficacy between individualized and standardized acupuncture treatment. This suggests that the use of standard points may make treatment easier for patient care and for further research studies

  Keywords Eye Diseases; Glaucoma; Cross-Over Design; Acu + Usual Care Versus CAM; Acu Versus Acu; Acupuncture; TCM Acupuncture Style; Fixed Acupuncture Style; Restricted Modalities, Acupuncture Only; CAM Control  
  Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate acupuncture as treatment for glaucoma. DESIGN: Prospective double-masked randomized crossover study. METHODS: setting: Clinical practice. POPULATION: One eye per patient with primary open-angle glaucoma and stable intraocular pressure (IOP). INTERVENTION: Patients were randomized to receive 1 acupuncture series (12 sessions with either eye-related [eye-points] or non-eye-related [non-eye-points] acupoints) and then crossed over to receive the other series. OUTCOME MEASURES: IOP, blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR), best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), visual field (VF), optic disc and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measurements, compliance, and adverse reactions. Probability to detect 3 mm Hg IOP difference between series was 90%. RESULTS: Twenty-two patients volunteered and 11 (50.0%) completed the study; 8 (36.4%) did not complete treatment owing to changes of health, moving away, lack of transportation, or family crisis; and 3(13.6%) were withdrawn owing to needle sensitivity or IOP elevation (8 mm Hg) in the contralateral eye. After an acupuncture session, mean IOP increased slightly with both eye-points (from 12.9 +/- 1.8 mm Hg to 13.6 +/- 2.0 mm Hg, P = .019) and non-eye-points (from 13.0 +/- 1.5 mm Hg to 13.5 +/- 1.7 mm Hg, P = .073) series. HR, diurnal IOP, and BCVA showed no statistically significant changes after 12 sessions of either series. Systolic and diastolic BP were reduced after 12 sessions of non-eye-points series (P = .040, P = .002, respectively). Optic disc, RNFL, and VF showed no statistically significant changes. CONCLUSIONS: Acupuncture has no overall effect on diurnal IOP or BCVA but may temporally increase the IOP immediately after a treatment session. BP is lowered by acupuncture with non-eye-points, but not with eye-points. Compliance and adverse event rates were low.

  Abstract Laryngospasm occurring after tracheal extubation in children is potentially dangerous. This study uses acupuncture with bloodletting at the Shao Shang (L 11) or Shang Yang (Li 1) acupoints to investigate whether this technique can prevent or treat laryngospasm. Seventy-six patients were randomly divided into two groups. Patients in the acupuncture group (n = 38) were treated with bilateral Shao Shang acupunctures at the end of the operation. Patients in the control group (n = 38) were not. The incidence of laryngospasm in the acupuncture group (5.3%) was less than that in the control group (23.7%) (p < 0.05). If laryngospasm developed, patients were immediately treated with acupuncture at either the Shao Shang or Shang Yang acupoints. As judged by an increase in peripheral oxygen saturation, the laryngospasm was relieved within 1 min of acupuncture in all patients. It is concluded that acupuncture with bloodletting at the Shao Shang acupoint may prevent and treat laryngospasm occurring after tracheal extubation in children

  Title The impact of patients with nonorganic physical findings on a controlled trial of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation and electroacupuncture Type of Study RCT

  Keywords CAM Control; Acupuncture; AcuTrials; Ashi Acupuncture Style; Electroacupuncture; Low Back Pain; Non Penetrating Sham, Electrical; Pain; RCT; Semi-Individualized Acupuncture Protocol; Sham Control; Symptom Based Point Selection; TCM Acupuncture Style; Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation; Low Back Pain, Chronic; Back Pain; TENS; Restricted Modalities, Acupuncture Only;  
  Abstract Fifty-four patients treated in a three-week in-patient rehabilitation program were randomly assigned to and accepted treatment with electroacupuncture (n = 17), TENS (low-intensity transcutaneous nerve stimulation, n = 18) and TENS-dead battery (placebo, n = 18). Outcome measures included estimates of pain (on a visual analogue scale) and disability by both physician and patient as well as physical measures of spine function. Two groups were constructed based on the absence of nonorganic physical findings (Valid group, n = 30) and the presence of two or more nonorganic physical findings out of a possible four (Invalid group, n = 10). Multivariate and univariate analyses of covariance were utilized to determine effects of treatment (acupuncture, TENS, placebo) and the effects of over-reporting (presence of excessive nonorganic physical findings). Statistically significant findings demonstrated that the acupuncture group enjoyed more relief of peak pain and more relief of pain on an average day at the three-month return assessment. Additionally, the acupuncture group demonstrated greater improvement in extension trunk strength at the discharge assessment. The Invalid group were found to have a contaminating effect on the acupuncture results. Analysis also demonstrated associations between nonorganic physical findings and both personality traits (“Conversion V” profile on MMPI) and retention of an attorney. Researchers conducting clinical trials in chronic low-back pain patients should control for contamination by the presence of over-reporters

  Abstract Fifty-four patients treated in a 3-week inpatient rehabilitation program were randomly assigned to and accepted treatment with electroacupuncture (n = 17), TENS (low intensity transcutaneous nerve stimulation, n = 18), and TENS dead-battery (placebo, n = 18). Outcome measures included estimates of pain (on a Visual Analogue Scale) and disability by both physician and patient, physical measures of trunk strength and spine range of motion, as well as the patient's perceptions of the relative contribution of the education, exercise training, and the electrical stimulation. Analyses of variance were utilized to determine effects of treatment (electroacupuncture, TENS, placebo) across time (admission, discharge, and return) for the outcome measures. There were no significant differences between treatment groups with respect to their overall rehabilitation. All 3 treatment groups ranked the contribution of the education as being greater than the electrical stimulation. However, the electroacupuncture group consistently demonstrated greater improvement on the outcome measures than the other treatment groups. For the visual analogue scale measure of average pain, there was a statistical trend at the return visit suggesting that the acupuncture group was experiencing less pain

  Abstract Objective: To observe the effects on exercise-induced fatigue with scalp penetration acupuncture. Methods: 60 athletes who train in 800-meter running were divided into 3 random groups. The Treatment Group was treated with head acupuncture and body acupuncture, while the Control Group was treated with body acupuncture. The Model Group received no treatment. The use of preventive acupuncture was applied 1 hour before training. The athletes' heart rate was recorded along with the hydracrylic acid, urea nitrogen, creatine kinase, and cruarin at the first and last day of training. Results: Compared with the Model Group, the Treatment Group had a rise in Hb levels and a decrease in heart rate (P< 0.05), along with a markedly decrease in LA, BUN and CK (P<0.01). Compared with the Control Group, treatment can increase Hb and decrease heart rate (P< 0.05), and decrease LA, BUN and CK (P< 0.05). Comparison among the 3 groups (P> 0.05) had no significant difference. Conclusion: Scalp penetration acupuncture can improve athletes' internal environment and increase the ability of contra-fatigue.

  Abstract OBJECTIVE: To observe the impact of needling Neiguan (P 6) on the cardiovascular functional status in low pulse pressure syndrome. METHOD: 49 eligible patients were randomly assigned to a acupuncture group with bilateral Neiguan (P 6) needled for successive 3 days, and a medication group given a daily 20 mL of Shenmai Injectio intravenously dripped for successive 6 days. The blood pressure, pulse pressure, stroke volume (SV), cardiac output(CO)/min, left ventricle work index (LVWI), mean arterial pressure (MAP), total peripheral resistance (TPR), coronary perfusion pressure (CPP), pulmonary arterial wedge pressure (PAWP), effective blood volume (BV), blood viscosity (N), microcirculation half renewal rate (MHR), and cardiac muscle blood volume (CMBV) were determined before and after the treatment, which were compared with the parameters obtained in 23 healthy subjects. RESULTS: The decreased pulse pressure of all patients before treatment (P<0.01) increased significantly after treatment (P<0.001). The levels of SV, CO, LVWI, PAWP, BV, MHR and CMBV were lowed when compared with the healthy subjects before treatment (P<0.01), but all of them significantly increased after treatment (P<0.01). The increased CPP, TPR and N before treatment (P<0.01) were decreased after treatment (P<0.01). CONCLUSION: The therapeutic effect of acupuncture at point Neiguan (P 6) was better than medication though some of the indexes showed no significant difference (P<0.05)

  Abstract In the evaluation of Chinese herbs (A), ear-acupuncture (B) and epidural morphine (C) to relieve postoperative pain and abdominal distension, sixteen male patients with primary liver cancer were observed. This study was conducted by means of orthogonal experiment and double blind, randomized design. The patients received various treatments according to the display of the orthogonal table L16(2)15 which corresponds to 2(3) factorial experiment design. C+ (morphine 2 mg) was given before the peritoneum was sutured. A+ (orally administered) and B+ were given 24 hours after operation. 50-100 mg of pethidine was given when the pain intensity VAS (0-100) exceeded 50-70. The observation parameters included plasma leucine enkephalin (LEK), postoperative total dosage of narcotics administered for 5 days, VAS for pain and pain reliever, abdominal distension, urinary retention, constipation, etc. The results were as follows: a. Patients who had received A (A+B+C+, A+B+C-, A+B-C-, A+B-C+); C (C+A+B+, C+A+B-, C+A-B+, C+A-B-), or B (B+A+C+, B+A+C-, B+A-C+, B+A-C-) produced better analgesic effects than those who had received placebo. The A, B, and C reduced narcotics 650, 450 and 550 mg respectively when compared with placebo. The effects of A and C were of statistical significance (P < 0.05), while AB, BC, and AC interactions were not found; b. A and B minimized abdominal distension and urinary retention, while C prolonged them. As compared with the placebo, A and B accelerated restoration of bowel peristalsis (P < 0.05, ANOVA). Both A and B decreased it for 165 hours, while epidural morphine prolonged it for 49 hours; and c.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

  Abstract Forty-eight cases of malposition of fetus were treated by electro-acupuncture, using Zhiyin (UB 67) points. 39 cases were corrected with a rate of 81.3%, the average session of treatment being 1.41. Two control groups were set up: moxibustion and blank control group. Statistical analysis shows that efficacy of electro-acupuncture is markedly superior to that of the blank. Sessions of electro-acupuncture were less than that of moxibustion and the difference was statistically significant, though there is no significant difference of efficacy between the two groups.

  Title Efficacy of acupuncture and moxibustion in treating Bell's palsy: a multicenter randomized controlled trial in China Type of Study RCT
  Year 2004 Publication Abbreviated Journal Chin Med J (Engl)

  Abstract BACKGROUND: Bell's palsy involves acute facial paralysis due to inflammation of the facial nerve. Acupuncture and moxibustion (acu-moxi) is beneficial in treating facial palsy. In order to verify the efficacy of acu-moxi on Bell's palsy, a randomized single-blind, multicenter clinical trial was performed. METHODS: A total of 480 patients from four clinical centers were involved in this trial, of whom 439 completed the trial and 41 did not. All patients were randomly assigned to either the control group or to one of two treatment groups. The control group was treated with prednisone, vitamin B1, vitamin B12, and dibazole; the treatment groups were treated either with acu-moxi alone or in combination with prednisone, Vitamin B1, vitamin B12, and dibazole. Symptoms and signs, the House-Brackmann scale, and facial disability index (FDI) scores were assessed and determined both pre- and post-treatment to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment methods. RESULTS: The characteristics of the control and two treatment groups were comparable without statistically significant differences before treatment. There were significant differences between the control and treatment groups after treatment (chi(2) = 15.265, P = 0.018). According to evaluations based on the House-Brackmann scale and FDI scores, the effectiveness of treatment in the two treatment groups was better than in the control group and was most effective in patients receiving acu-moxi treatment alone (Z = -2.827, P = 0.005). CONCLUSION: The efficacy of acu-moxi treatment for Bell's palsy is verified scientifically
