Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To probe into effects of Linggui Bafa (method for picking eight points linked with extraordinary meridians according to time) on the therapeutic effect and quality of life in patients of post stroke depression.

METHODS

One hundred and twenty cases were randomly divided into 3 groups, an observation group 1, an observation group 2 and a control group, 40 cases in each group. All patients were given routine clinical treatments and second level medical prevention. Patients in the observation group 1 received Linggui Bafa acupuncture treatment 2 weeks after stroke; at the same time the observation group 2 was treated with oral administration of Sertraline. The control group did not receive any form of either acupuncture or oral medication, but early rehabilitative intervention and psychological treatment were initiated. Curative effects were evaluated with Hamilton Depression Scale (HAMD), Function Independent Measure (FIM), National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) and SF-36 after the treatment and 6 months later, respectively.

RESULTS

The scores of HAMD, FIM (cognition function) and general health, role-physical, role-emotional, social function, vitality, mental health in SF-36 in the observation group 1 were significantly higher than those in the control group after treatment and 6 months later (P<0.01, P<0.05). The scores of physical function in SF-36 after treatment and NIHSS 6 months later in the observation group 1 were significantly improved than those in the control group (P<0.01, P<0.05). The scores of FIM (cognition function) and role-physical, social function, mental health in SF-36 after treatment and HAMD and general health, social function, mental health in SF-36 6 months later in the observation group 2 were significantly better than those in the control group (P<0.01, P<0.05). The scores of HAMD, FIM (cognition function) and general health, role-emotional, social function, vitality, mental health in SF-36 in the observation group 1 were significantly improved than those in the observation group 2 after treatment and 6 months later (P<0.01, P<0.05). The scores of NIHSS and role-physical in SF-36 in the observation group 1 were significantly higher than those in the observation group 2 6 months later (P<0.05).

CONCLUSION

Acupuncture can improve depression symptoms and quality of life of patients with post stroke depression and the effects were better than Sertraline.
