    ABSTRACT: To discuss the therapeutic effect on dysphagia of the convalescent stroke by combination of the body acupuncture, the scalp acupuncture and the electric acupuncture could be better than that by routine rehabilitation training. 148 patients with dysphagia of convalescent stroke were randomly assigned to the acupuncture group and rehabilitation group, 74 in each group. Fengchi (GB20), Wangu (GB12), Yifeng (SJ17), Lian-quan (RN23), Jinjin (EX-HN12), Yuye (EX-HN12) on the affected side were needled, and the scalp acupuncture was needled. The body acupuncture, the electric acupuncture, and the scalp acupuncture were applied in combination in the acupuncture group. The acupuncture was performed once a day, five times as one therapeutic course, 2 -4 courses totally. Rehabilitation training was performed by language therapists in the control group. The main outcomes were assessed with both intention-to-treat analysis and on-treatment/per-protocol analysis at the same time. The value of number needed to treat (NNT)/number needed to harm (NNH) and their 95% confidence intervals were also reported. The secondary outcomes were assessed by the end of thetreatment. The recoveryrate assessed by Watian swallowing ability, water drinking test in the acupuncture group were better than those of the control group by the end of the treatment and three months after treatment (P<0.05). There was no statistical significance in the pulmonary infection rate and the mortality or in the 6-month mortality after treatment by the end of the treatment between the two groups (P>0.05). The compliance was 100% in the two groups. No adverse reaction occurred in the acupuncture group. Acupuncture for dysphagia of convalescent stroke was better than routine rehabilitation training with safety and high tolerance.

    ABSTRACT: ObjectiveTo investigate the acupuncture effect for post-apoplectic spasticity. MethodsModified Ashworth spasticity rating, Brunnstrom grades, Barthel ADL (Activity of Daily Living) indexes were employed to assess the spasticity, motor function and activities of daily living (ADL), and thus observe the effect of combined scalp and body acupuncture for post-apoplectic hemiplegic patients. ResultsCombined scalp and body acupuncture can obtain significantly better effects than body acupuncture alone in relieving spasticity and improving the patients’ motor function and ADL (P<0.01). ConclusionCombined scalp and body acupuncture has a distinct advantage in relieving spasticity and can improve the patients’ motor function and ADL. 目的研究针刺对中风偏瘫痉挛状态的影响。 方法采用修改的Ashworth痉挛评 定级、 Brunnstrom分级、 Barthel日常生活能力 (Activities of Daily Living, ADL) 指数分 别评定痉挛程度、 运动功能水平、 日常生活能力, 观察头针、 体针联合应用对中风后偏 瘫患者痉挛状态的影响。 结果头针、 体针联合应用对痉挛状态的改善, 对运动功能水 平及日常生活能力的影响均优于单纯体针治疗 (P<0.01)。 结论头针、 体针联合应用在 改善痉挛状态方面有独特的优势, 可提高患者的运动功能水平及日常生活能力。 关键词 中风; 偏瘫; 针刺疗法; 康复; 日常生活能力 Key WordsStroke-Hemiplegia-Acupuncture Therapy-Rehabilitation-Activities of Daily Living 关键词中风-偏瘫-针刺疗法-康复-日常生活能力 CLC NumberR246.6

    ABSTRACT: To observe the therapeutic effect of acupoint sticking therapy for treatment of stroke. Two hundred and forty-six cases were randomly divided into a non-acupoint sticking group (control group, n=122) and an acupoint sticking group (n=124). The control group was treated with routine ward treatment of stroke (acupuncture combined with routine western medicine). The acupoint sticking group was treated with basis ward treatment of stroke (similar to the control group), and acupoint sticking therapy was applicated on Shenque (CV 8). The scores of Stroke-Specific Quality of Life (SS-QOL) and WHOQOL-100BREF were adopted to evaluate the therapeutic effects and the cysteine of patients were tested before and after treatment. There were significant differences in scores comparison of SS-QOL and WHOQOL-100BREF before and after treatment in both groups (both P < 0.001); there was no significant difference after treatment between two groups (P > 0.05); there was a significant difference in thinking items of SS-QOL after treatment between two groups (P < 0.05), the acupoint sticking group was superior to that of control group; SS-QOL score of patients with abnormal cysteine of acupoint sticking group was superior to that of the control group after treatment, with a significant difference between the two groups (P < 0.05). The acupoint sticking therapy can improve the thinking ability of stroke patients, and improve the life quality of high cysteine stroke patients.

    ABSTRACT: To observe the effect of combined treatment of apoplectic upper-limb dyscinesia with scalp-acupuncture, body-acupuncture and abdominal-acupuncture in stroke patients. A total of 222 stroke patients were randomized into treatment group (n = 133) and control group (n = 89) according to the random number table method. For patients of treatment group, scalp-point used was Motor Area (MS 6); body acupoints were Hegu (LI 4), Quchi (LI 11), Shousanli (LI 10), etc; and abdominal acupoints Zhongwan (CV 12), Qihai (CV 6), etc. For patients in control group, only the same body acupoints were used. Acupuncture treatment was given once daily for 5 weeks. The therapeutic effects were evaluated by Fugl-Meyer motor function assessment (FMA) and Barthel-index (BI) scores. In comparison with pre-treatment, FMA score and BI score increased significantly 5 weeks, 1 and 3 months in treatment group, 1 and 3 months in control group (P < 0.01). Comparison between two groups showed that both FMA score and BI score of treatment group were markedly higher than those of control group 5 weeks, 1 and 3 months after the treatment (P < 0.01). Alternative administration of scalp-acupuncture, body-acupuncture and abdominal acupuncture can effectively improve stroke patients' upper-limb motor function, and its effect is obviously better than that of simple body acupuncture.

    ABSTRACT: To study on rehabilitation therapeutic effect of different needling methods on spastic state of apoplectic hemiplegia. With unified diagnostic criteria, enrolled criteria and unified needling methods, 152 patients with apoplectic hemiplegia were randomly devided into body acupuncture (BA) group (A group). BA plus scalp acupuncture (SA) group (B group), BA plus abdominal acupuncture (AA) group (C group) and BA+ SA+ AA group (D group). Spastic degrees, motor function level, daily life ability were assessed by using modified Ashworth spastic rating, Brunnstrom rating, brief Fugl-Meyer and Barthel's ADL indexes assessment methods, and to investigate therapeutic effects of different needling methods on apoplectic hemiplegia. B group, C group and D group in improvement of spastic state, motor function level and daily life ability were superior to A group (P < 0.01), with the D group being the best (P < 0.01). Combined needling method has an unique advantage in improvement of spastic state, increasing motor function and daily life ability of the patient.

    ABSTRACT: To observe clinical therapeutic effect of abdominal acupuncture on spastic paralysis after cerebrovascular disorder. Sixty cases of spastic paralysis after cerebrovascular disorder were randomly divided into an abdominal acupuncture group and a body acupuncture group, 30 cases in each group. They all were treated for 5 times each week, for a 3 consecutive weeks, and then the therapeutic effects were observed. The spasm in the abdominal acupuncture group improved significantly, but in the body acupuncture group did not significantly improve. The therapeutic effect in the abdominal acupuncture group was significantly better than that in the body acupuncture group. Abdominal acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy for spastic paralysis after cerebrovascular disorder.
