Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To explore the better therapeutic method for acute peripheral facial paralysis.

METHODS

One hundred and ninety-seven cases of acute peripheral facial paralysis were randomly divided into an observation group (n=125) and a control group (n=72). The observation group was treated by injection at acupoint combined with warming needle therapy at Yifeng (TE 17), Wangu (GB 12), Xiaguan (ST 7), Qianzheng (EX), and Taiyang (EX-HN 5). The control group was treated with electroacupuncture at Yifeng (TE 17), Yangbai (GB 14), Xiaguan (ST 7), etc. Their therapeutic effects were compared between the two groups.

RESULTS

After three therapeutic courses, the cured rate and the total effective rate in the observation group were 76.0%, 100.0%, and 48.6%, 86.1% in the control group, respectively, with significant defferences between the two groups (all P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION

Injection at acupoint combined with warming needle therapy could shorten the therapeutic cycle, improve the effectiveness, and decrease sequela in acute peripheral facial paralysis.
