 [EFFECT OF ACUPUNCTURE ON HEMORHEOLOGY AND CELLULAR RHEOLOGY IN SUDDEN DEAFNESS PATIENTS]. WANG CHANGHAI, WANG HONGCAI, FENG WEN, ET AL. acupuncture research. 2002;27(2):155 (chi).
 Objective : To observe the effect of acupuncture on hemorheology and cellular rheology for exploring mechanisms of acupuncture in the treatment of sudden deafness. Methods : A total of 50 deafness inpatients and outpatients were observed in this paper. Ermen (TE 21), Tinggong (SI 19), Tinghui (GB 2), Yifeng (TE 17), Zhongzhu (KI 15), Sanyinjiao (SP 6) and Taixi (KI 3) were punctured, one time a day, with 6 days being a course of treatment. The interval among the therapeutic courses was one day, and the acupuncture treatment was conducted continuously for 4 courses. Before and after acupuncture treatment, blood samples were collected for detecting changes of whole blood high shear visicosity (WBHSV) , whole blood low shear visicosity (WBLSV) , plasma visicosity (PV), blood cell volume (BCV), fibrinogen (FG), hemagglutination index (HGI) and erythrocyte distortion index (EDI). Results : Before treatment, WBHSV , WBLSV , PV, BCV, FG and HGI values were all obviously higher than those of normal values (P

 Objective : To observe effect of acupuncture on sudden deafness and hemorrheology, and probe into the mechanism. Methods : Acupuncture was given at Ermen (TE 21), Tinggong (SI 19), Tinghui (GB 2), Yifeng (TE 17), Zhongzhu (TE 3), Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Taixi (KI 3) with uniform reinforcing-reducing method of filiform needle, once each day, 30 minutes each time, 6 days constituting one course. After 4 courses, data of hemorrheology before and after acupuncture treatment were compared. Results : After acupuncture treatment, whole blood high- shear viscosity, whole blood low shear viscosity, fibrinogen content, hematocrit, and hemagglutination index decreased significantly as compared with those before acupuncture (P<0.05 or P<0.01), and erythrocyte deformability increased significantly (P<0.01), and the symptoms improved and audition increased to a certain extent. Conclusion : Acupuncture can improve symptom, increase audition, change hypercoagulability, increase erythrocyte deformability, suggesting that decreasing blood viscosity is possibly one of mechanism of acupuncture treating sudden deafness.

 CLINICAL OBSERVATION ON THE EFFECTS OF ELECTROACUPUNCTURE AT SHAOZE (SI 1) IN 46 CASES OF POSTPARTUM INSUFFICIENT LACTATION WEI LIXIN, WANG HONGCAI, HAN YING, ET AL. journal of traditional chinese medicine. 2008;28(3):168 (eng).
 Objective: To evaluate the clinical therapeutic effects of electroacupuncture at Shaoze (SI 1) for insufficient lactation after delivery, and further study the influence of this method on the different types of syndromes and on such patients of different ages. Methods: The 92 cases of postpartum insufficient lactation were randomly divided into the treatment group (46 cases) and the control group (46 cases). The former was treated by electroacupuncture at bilateral Shaoze (SI 1), and the latter by electroacupuncture at bilateral Shangyang (LI 1). Both groups were treated for 2 courses, each course consisting of 5 times of treatment, and followed up for 1 month. Results: The total effective rate of the treatment group and control group was 100% and 69.6% respectively, showing a significant difference (P<0.01). For different types of syndromes and different ages of patients, the treatment group obtained a better effect than the control group in increasing lactation quantity and maintaining prolactin level with a significant difference (P<0.01). Conclusions: Electroacupuncture at Shaoze (SI 1) was obviously effective for postpartum insufficient lactation.
