Abstract

Objective

To observe the clinical effect of combined electroacupuncture with Chinese medicine for infertility due to hydrosalpinx.

Methods

A total of 114 cases were randomly allocated into 3 groups, an observation group of 38 cases treated by combined electroacupuncture with oral administration of Chinese medicine and medicinal fumigation, a combined acupuncture and Chinese medicine group of 38 cases treated by electroacupuncture and oral administration of Chinese medicine, and a Chinese medicine group of 38 cases treated by oral administration of Chinese medicine and medicinal fumigation. The cases were treated for 1–3 sessions. After each session of treatment, conduct ultrasound examination after menstruation to observe the condition of hydrosalpinx, and continue with next session for those with hydrosalpinx retention.

Results

The therapeutic efficacy of the observation group was significantly different from that of the combined acupuncture with Chinese medicine group and the Chinese medicine group (P<0.01). However, there was no statistical difference between the latter two groups (P>0.05).

Conclusion

Combined acupuncture with Chinese medicine can obtain obvious effect in treating hydrosalpinx.
