Observation on therapeutic effects of blood-letting puncture with cupping in acute trigeminal neuralgia.

Abstract Title: Observation on therapeutic effects of blood-letting puncture with cupping in acute trigeminal neuralgia. Abstract Source: Int Immunopharmacol. 2010 Jul;10(7):760-8. Epub 2010 Apr 22. PMID: 10437209 Abstract Author(s): Z Zhang Abstract: In the present paper, 45 cases of acute trigeminal neuralgia were treated and observed by comparative method. Results showed no significant difference in transient analgesic effect (P>0.05) but a significant difference in therapeutic effect (P<0.01) between the treatment and control groups. This indicates that blood-letting puncture with cupping is an effective therapy for the disease. Article Published Date : Jul 01, 2010

Observation on therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping on herpes zoster

Abstract Title: [Observation on therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping on herpes zoster]. Abstract Source: Zhongguo Zhen Jiu. 2009 Nov;29(11):887-90. PMID: 19994687 Abstract Author(s): Yin-ni Liu, Hong-xing Zhang, Guo-fu Huang, Ran Zou, Wei Wei Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To compare the therapeutic effect differences between electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting plus cupping and western medicine therapy. METHODS: Fifty-three cases were randomly divided into an observation group (n=31) and a control group (n=22). The observation group was treated by electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting with a plum-blossom needle at the affected parts plus cupping, once each day. The control group was treated by oral administration of Valaciclovir Hydrochlordide, Indomethacin, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B12. RESULTS: The cured and markedly effective rate of 96.8% in the observation group was better than that of 81.8% in the control group (P<0.05), and improvements of pain, pruritus, burning sensation and sleep in the observation group were superior to those of the control group (all P<0.01). CONCLUSION: Electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping is a better therapy for herpes zoster and its therapeutic effect is better than that of routine western medicine therapy.
