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.

The Hippocratic Method of Surgical Cauterization for the Tumescence Spleen in the Rare "Spetses Syndrome".

Related Articles The Hippocratic Method of Surgical Cauterization for the Tumescence Spleen in the Rare "Spetses Syndrome". Surg Innov. 2018 Aug;25(4):413-416 Authors: Tsoucalas G, Markatos K, Karamanou M Abstract Spleen in antiquity was considered by the Hippocratic medicine as a viscerous organ of spongy character, which could clear human body of the black bile. According to the Hippocratic doctrine of the 4 humors, black bile could cause a series of diseases. Both the anatomical position and shape of the spleen were also recognized. In the case of a splenic hardening, with simultaneous augmentation of its dimensions and dermal ulceration and/or splenic abscess, some interventions were proposed. Thus, herbal medicine, phlebotomy, and minimal surgery with local cauterization were applied for treatment, to confront a disease that was considered serious but not fatal. The Hippocratic physicians encountered various spleen diseases and among them they most probably confronted a rare splenic pathological entity, named centuries later as "Spetses syndrome," a rare type of thalassemia of the Spetses island of Saronikos Gulf. Although the approach seems in modern terms rather primitive, the ancient Greek medico-philosophers most likely understood the significance of the spleen.
