To observe the clinical effect of wheat grain-sized cone moxibustion combined with fire needle therapy in the treatment of dorsal wrist ganglion (DWG).
A total of 63 patients with DWG were randomized into a treatment group (n=32) and a control group (n=31). Cases in the control group were treated with fire needle therapy. Based on the therapy given to the control group, cases in the treatment group were additionally given wheat grain-sized cone moxibustion therapy. Then the therapeutic efficacies and recurrence rate were evaluated.
After treatment, the overall effective rate was 93.8% in the treatment group, versus 77.4% in the control group, and the between-group comparison showed a statistical significance (P<0.05); 6 months after the treatment, the recurrence rate in the treatment group was obviously lower than that in the control group (P<0.05).
The long-term and short-term effects of wheat grain-sized cone moxibustion combined with fire needle therapy in the treatment of DWG are better than those of fire needle therapy alone, and therefore, worth popularizing.

将63例腕背部腱鞘囊肿患者随机分为治疗组(32例)和对照组(31例), 对照组予火针治疗, 治疗组在对照组的基础上加用麦粒灸治疗。观察两组治疗后的疗效及复发率。
治疗组总有效率93.8%, 对照组为77.4%, 组间总有效率差异有统计学意义(P<0.05); 治疗后6个月内治疗组复发率显著低于对照组, 组间差异有统计学意义(P<0.05)。
