Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To observe the therapeutic effect and prognosis of wrist-ankle acupuncture for treatment of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia.

METHODS:

Ninety-five cases of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia were randomly divided into a wrist-ankle acupuncture group (n = 55) and a control group (n = 40). The treatment group were treated with acupuncture at the points, Wanshang No. 1 and 2, and the control group with oral administration of diltiazem. After being treated for 3 courses, their therapeutic effects were evaluated.

RESULTS:

The total effective rate was 81.8% in the treatment group and 54.0% in the control group with a significant difference between the two groups (P < 0. 05); the long-term therapeutic effect in the treatment group was better than that in the control group.

CONCLUSION:

Wrist-Ankle acupuncture has obvious therapeutic effect on paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia.
