[Observation of curative effect of herpes zoster treated with acupuncture based on syndrome differentiation combined with pricking and cupping].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To compare the differences of curative effects of herpes zoster treated with acupuncture based on syndrome differentiation combined with pricking and cupping and simple pricking and cupping.

METHODS

Eighty-six cases were randomly divided into an observation group (43 cases) and a control group (43 cases). In observation group, acupoints selection based on syndrome differentiation i.e. Quchi (LI 11), Zusanli (ST 36), Sanyinjiao (SP 6), etc. were selected and pricking and cupping at affected parts were applied, and the cases were classified into damp heat in liver and gallbladder, damp retention and spleen deficiency, and qi deficiency and blood stasis. In control group, all the cases were simplely treated with pricking and cupping at affected parts. The treatment was given once a day, and seven days were made one session. The curative effect was evaluated after 2 courses, and the follow-up was carried on after 1 month.

RESULTS

The cured and markedly effective rate was 93.0% (40/43) in observation group, superior to that of 67.4% (29/43) in control group (P < 0.01). Postherpetic neuralgia: there was 2.3% (1/43) in observation group, inferior to that of 14.0% (6/43) in control group. Comparison in 3 types: the cured and markedly effective rate of damp heat in liver and gallbladder: 94.7% (18/19) in observation group, and 85.7% (18/21) in control group, showing no significant difference between groups (P > 0.05). The cured and markedly effective rate of damp retention and spleen deficiency: 93.8% (15/16) in observation group, superior to that of 60.0% (9/15) in control group (P < 0. 05). The cured and markedly effective rate of qi deficiency and blood stasis: 87.5% (7/8) in observation group, superior to that of 28.6% (2/7) in control group (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION

For herpes zoster, acupoints selection based on syndrome differentiation combined with pricking and cupping therapy is high pertinent and effective, the postherpetic neuralgia can be reduced significantly and the curative effect is superior to that of simple pricking and cupping.
