ABSTRACT

Disfunção Temporomandibular (DTM) apresenta-se como principal causa de dores orofaciais de origem não dentária. A acupuntura é indicada para o alívio de da dor em casos de DTM muscular, baseada em propriedades anti-inflamatórias com efeitos neuro-hormonais. Objetivou-se nesta pesquisa a avaliação da eficácia da acupuntura como um método válido para redução imediata da sintomatologia dolorosa e limitação de abertura bucal nos casos de DTM. Realizou-se terapia acupuntural em 30 pacientes com DTM, avaliando-se a dor, a partir da Escala Verbal (EV) e da Escala Analógica Visual (EAV) e a limitação de abertura bucal com o auxílio de paquímetro digital antes e após a terapia para registro da análise. O aumento da média de abertura bucal foi de 9,2% no total de participantes. Quanto à sintomatologia dolorosa, apresentou redução média em 63%. Na EV, 27 dos pacientes tiveram resposta "moderada" e "intensa" para sensação dolorosa. Contudo, após a terapia, observou-se ausência de sensação dolorosa intensa. Os dados apontaram significância da terapia acupuntural para redução dor e limitação de abertura bucal, de forma imediata, em pacientes com DTM... (AU)


Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) is the main cause of orofacial pain of non-dental origin. Acupuncture is indicated for pain relief in cases of muscle TMD, based on anti-inflammatory properties with neuro hormonal effects. The aim of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness of the acupuncture as a valid method for immediate reduction of painful symptoms and mouth opening limitation in TMD cases. Acupuncture therapy was performed in 30 patients with TMD, evaluating pain from the Verbal Scale (VE) and Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and mouth opening limitation with the aid of a digital caliper before and after therapy to record the analysis. The increase in the average mouth opening was 9.2% in the total number of participants. As for painful symptoms, an average reduction of 63%. In IV, 27 of the patients had "moderate" and "intense" responses to painful sensation. However, after therapy, the absence of intense painful sensation was observed. The data showed the significance of acupuncture therapy for immediate pain reduction and mouth opening limitation in patients with TMD... (AU)

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To identify the prominent molecular signaling in acupoints and explore their roles in initiating the analgesia effect of manual acupuncture (MA).@*METHOD@#A three-step study was conducted, the experiment 1 was a genome-wide analysis of the tissue at acupoint Zusanli (ST 36), including 12 Wistar rats which were divided into control, control+MA1, and control+MA7 groups. In the experiment 2, the paw withdrawal latency (PWL), immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis of phospho-nuclear factor kappa B (NFκB) p65 (p-p65), phospho-NFκB p50 (p-p50) at ST 36 were performed on rats of saline, saline+MA, and complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)+MA groups (n=6). In experiment 3, 24 rats were divided into saline+DMSO, CFA+DMSO, CFA+DMSO+MA, and CFA+BAY 11-7082+MA groups, the PWL and immunofluorescence assay of NFκB p65 at ST 36 was conducted.@*RESULT@#(1) The gene: inhibitor of NFκB (Nfkbia), interleukin-1β (Il1b), interleukin-6 (Il6), chemokine c-x-c motif ligand 1 (Cxcl1), monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1/Ccl2) expressions in the control+MA7 group were significantly increased (P<0.05 or P<0.01), and the expression of NFκB p65 (Rela), NFκB p50 (Nfkb1) were increased in the control+MA7 group (P<0.05). (2) CFA+MA groups showed increased PWL from day 1 to 7 (P<0.01 vs. CFA), and the Western blot results were consistent with immunohistochemistry, the expression of NFκB p-p65 and NFκB p-p50 were significantly increased in the MA-related groups compared with control and CFA groups (P<0.05). (3) Compared with the CFA+DMSO+MA group, the PWL of the CFA+ BAY 11-7082+MA group decreased significantly and continued until day 5 and 7 (P<0.05 and P<0.01, respectively), and the NFκB p65 expression of CFA+BAY 11-7082+MA was significantly reduced compared with CFA+DMSO+MA (P<0.01).@*CONCLUSION@#Local NFκB signaling cascade in acupoint caused by MA is an important step in initiating the analgesic effect, which would provide new evidence for the initiation of MA-effect and improve the understanding of the scientific basis of acupuncture analgesia.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: la acupuntura humana es una terapia complementaria en la atención para la salud. Derivado de su alta demanda en gran parte del mundo la OMS fijo su postura a favor de la Medicina Tradicional y Complementaria (MTC) con la publicación "Estrategia sobre medicina tradicional 2014-2023", ésta se centra en dos objetivos: brindar apoyo a los Estados Miembros en la contribución de la MTC en la salud, bienestar y atención centrada en las personas y promover su utilización de forma segura y eficaz; mediante la reglamentación de productos, prácticas y profesionales capacitados. Desarrollo: la estrategia plantea la necesidad de que toda práctica de MTC sea realizada con formación universitaria, sin embargo, solo el 30% de los países miembros (39) cuentan con ella universitaria y 56% (72) tienen reglamentos para su práctica en acupuntura. En México se imparten diversos cursos y diplomados de MTC, a nivel técnico, licenciatura, especialidad y posgrado, con diferentes horas curriculares. Asimismo, cuenta con políticas de regulación sobre acupuntura y sus técnicas. Conclusión: la acupuntura tiene sustento científico en la anatomía y neurofisiología. Debe ser aplicada por profesionales del área de salud y con formación certificada por una institución de reconocido prestigio.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La catarata constituye una de las principales causas de ceguera a escala mundial. Es más frecuente en los ancianos y el tratamiento de elección es el quirúrgico. Objetivo: Evaluar la efectividad de la analgesia acupuntural en pacientes operados de catarata. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio de intervención terapéutica en 136 pacientes mayores de 40 años con diagnóstico de catarata, operados en el Servicio de Oftalmología del Hospital General Docente Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso de Santiago de Cuba en el período 2016-2018. La muestra se dividió aleatoriamente en 2 grupos (de estudio y de control), con 68 integrantes cada uno. Resultados: Predominaron los pacientes de 70 años y más y del sexo femenino. Las variables hemodinámicas no sufrieron modificaciones significativas con el proceder terapéutico. Conclusiones: La analgesia quirúrgica acupuntural fue más efectiva que la convencional, pues se logró una sedación mayor en casi la totalidad de los pacientes durante la operación, así como mayor permanencia de su efecto durante el período posoperatorio; asimismo, hubo menor número de afectados con edema y hemorragia.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To compare the clinical effect of wrist-ankle needle combined with opioid drugs and opioid drugs alone in treating refractory cancer pain.@*METHODS@#Sixty patients were randomly divided into an observation group and a control group, 30 cases in each one. The opioid drugs in accordance with the three-step analgesic principle and other auxiliary drugs were treated in the control group. On the basis of the treatment in the control group, wrist-ankle needle was added in the observation group, and acupoints were selected according to the pain site and the primary focus, the treatment was given once a day for 10 days. The visual analogue scale (VAS) score, the times of pain outbreaks and the incidence of adverse reactions were compared at the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th and 10th days of treatment and the 3rd and 7th days after treatment. The therapeutic effect in the two groups were compared after treatment.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the control group, the VAS scores in the observation group were significantly reduced from the 2nd day of wrist-ankle needle treatment, and continued to the 3rd day after the end of the treatment (0.05); compared with the control group, the times of pain outbreaks in the observation group decreased from the 2nd day to the 10th day of treatment (all <0.05); the incidence of nausea, vomiting and constipation in the observation group was significantly reduced compared with the control group (<0.05); the total effective rate in the observation group was 86.7% (26/30), which was higher than 76.7% (23/30) in the control group (<0.05).@*CONCLUSION@#Wrist-ankle needle combined with opioid drugs can increase the efficacy of the refractory cancer pain and reduce the adverse reactions of opioid drugs.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To confirm that acupuncture applied to patients would improve the clinical curative effect and accelerate the patient's recovery by introducing the application of acupuncture in pre-operation, during operation, and post-operation.@*DATA SOURCES@#Literature cited in this review was retrieved from PubMed, Web of Science, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) and was primarily published in English or Chinese from 2010 to 2018, with keywords of "acupuncture," "electroacupuncture," "perioperative period," "sedation," "analgesia," and "recovery." Relevant citations in the retrieved articles were also screened to include more data.@*STUDY SELECTION@#All retrieved literature was scrutinized, most typical articles related on perioperative acupuncture application in clinical study were reviewed.@*RESULTS@#Acupuncture could relieve anxiety and stress during the preoperative stage. It reduces the usage of narcotics and stress response, and maintains the respiratory stability and homeostasis during surgery. It also exerts a protective effect on vital organs, and during the postoperative stages, enhances the recovery while effectively alleviating the postoperative pain. This phenomenon prevents common postoperative discomforts such as nausea and vomiting. In addition, it might improve the patients' long-term prognosis.@*CONCLUSIONS@#The novel concept "perioperative acupuncture medicine" is to focus on the optimal treatment in the perioperative period of surgical patients. The review reveals the important role of acupuncture in enhancing rapid recovery of patients during the perioperative period.

ABSTRACT

"The opening-closing-pivoting theory" recorded in () visualizes the activity of six meridians and indicates the relationship among the six meridians in physiology and pathology. Through the analysis on the classic medical works and modern literature of TCM by the modern medical masters, a specific relationship is discovered among the hand and foot meridians of the same name and among the organs. The is corresponded and interacted among the hand and foot meridians of the same name. Except the exterior and interior relationship among the organs, the related communication is also existing. Both meridians and organs are closely related to "the opening-closing- pivoting" theory. This discovery is the inheritance and development of "the opening-closing-pivoting theory" and plays the important role in the guidance of the acupoint selection of clinical acupuncture analgesia.

ABSTRACT

La acupuntura es un método de tratamiento basado en la estimulación neural periférica, la cual actúa en tres niveles del sistema nervioso central: espinal, tronco encefálico y diencéfalo, en los que se involucran núcleos cerebrales (reticular del bulbo y magno de rafe), áreas del sistema límbico, neurotransmisores como serotonina, noradrenalina y acetilcolina que favorecen la liberación de neuropéptidos como las encefalinas y endorfinas las que juega un papel fundamental en la modulación de la transmisión del estímulo doloroso, lo que permite elevar el umbral del dolor; el cual constituye la base de la analgesia quirúrgica acupuntural, teniendo en cuenta las principales teorías occidentales que tratan de explicar los mecanismos de supresión de dolor se abordan las bases neurofisiológicas de esta técnica milenaria.


Acupuncture is a treatment method based on peripheral neural stimulation, which acts on three levels of the central nervous system: spinal, brain stem and diencephalon, involving brain nuclei (reticular bulb and magne of raphe), areas of the limbic system, neurotransmitters such as serotonin, noradrenaline and acetylcholine, favoring the release of neuropeptides such as enkephalins and endorphins, which plays a key role in modulating the transmission of painful stimuli, thus raising the pain threshold; Which is the basis of acupuncture surgical analgesia, taking into account the main western theories that try to explain the mechanisms of pain suppression, the neurophysiological bases of this millenarian technique are approached.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Describir las variaciones en el consumo de analgésicos en pacientes con lumbalgia crónica que recibieron terapias con medicina complementaria. Materiales y métodos: Estudio descriptivo. Se realizó en el Centro de Atención de Medicina Complementaria (CAMEC) ­ La Libertad en el periodo marzo-mayo de 2009, de seis semanas de seguimiento en 45 pacientes que recibieron terapias con medicina complementaria. Se incluyeron pacientes con diagnóstico de lumbalgia mayor de 12 semanas y tratamiento farmacológico activo. Se evaluaron características clínico-epidemiológicas, factores de riesgo asociados (obesidad, estrés, sedentarismo, polifarmacia), tiempo de enfermedad, terapia utilizada, disminución del consumo de analgésicos y el grado de satisfacción. Resultados: Un 77,8% presentó el diagnóstico de lumbalgia crónica inespecífica. Las terapias complementarias más indicadas fueron acupuntura, masoterapia y fitoterapia; en su mayoría de modo combinado. En seis semanas de seguimiento el 93,3% de la población redujo, en alguna medida, la dosis habitual de analgésicos; mientras que el 40% suspendió totalmente su consumo. El 86,7% de los pacientes manifestaron haber obtenido resultados excelentes o buenos después de la aplicación de terapias alternativas. Conclusiones: El uso de terapias complementarias en el tratamiento de la lumbalgia crónica disminuye el uso de analgésicos y brinda una percepción de satisfacción en los pacientes.

Morphine hydrochloride injection was performed when analgesia and sedation effect was ineffective in the two groups. The indicators of patients at different time points in the two groups were observed, such as static and dynamic VAS scores, SAS scores, mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR), oxygen saturation (SpO2).

The analgesia satisfaction rate of patients in group B was much higher than that in group A (P < 0.05). The incidence of bradycardia also obviously decreased more in group B than in group A (P < 0.05). There was no statistical difference in patients' sedation satisfaction rate, incidences of low blood pressure, delirium, vomiting; mechanical ventilation time, ICU time, or hospitalization expense between the two groups (P > 0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The analgesia method of ACM could reduce the dosage of traditional analgesic drugs and the occurrence of partial adverse reactions.</p>

ABSTRACT

The efficacy of acupuncture for pain diseases is significant, however, the unified understanding re garding mechanisms of acupuncture analgesia has not been fully reached. In this paper, it is believed that uncoordi nated muscle movement is one of the important causes for pain, while acupuncture could enhance the contact of nerve cells and improve the synergy of muscle movement, so as to achieve the aim of pain relief and even cure.

ABSTRACT

Objetivou-se com este estudo avaliar o efeito analgésico trans e pós-operatório da eletroacupuntura em onda denso-dispersa e frequências 3 e 200Hz, nos pontos E44, R3 e BP4, compará-lo com a analgesia promovida pelos pontos BP6, E36 e VB 34, e pela morfina, em cadelas submetidas à ovariosalpingohisterectomia (OSH). Teve-se como hipótese que a eletroacupuntura nos pontos E44, R3 e BP4 resultaria em controle da dor trans e pós-operatória melhor ou igual àquele promovido pela eletroacupuntura nos pontos BP6, E36 e VB34 e pela morfina. Trinta e seis cadelas submetidas à cirurgia eletiva de OSH foram distribuídas em blocos ao acaso em três grupos com 12 animais. Em dois grupos foi realizada eletroacupuntura denso-dispersa, com frequência de 3 e 200Hz, sendo que, no primeiro grupo (GEA), foram estimulados os pontos BP4, E44, R3 e, no segundo grupo (GEB), os pontos BP6, E36, VB34...


Thirty-six dogs undergoing elective ovariohysterectomy surgery were randomly distributed into 3 groups of 12 animals each. In the first group, dense-dispersed electroacupuncture was performed with a frequency of 3-200 Hz in SP4, ST44, KID3 points and 1.5mL of saline was given intramuscularly (GEA group). For the second group, dense-dispersed electroacupuncture was performed with a frequency of 3-200 Hz in SP6, ST36, GB34 points and 1.5mL of saline given intramuscularly (GEB group)...

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT PURPOSE : To investigate the analgesic effect of acupuncture (AP) or micro-dose pharmacopuncture (PA), using carprofen or morphine, in bitches undergoing ovariohysterectomy (OHE). METHODS: Thirty five dogs were randomly assigned to five groups after sedation with acepromazine IM: AP, 0.5 mg.kg-1 of morphine subcutaneously (SC), 4 mg.kg-1 of carprofen SC, and PA with 0.05 mg.kg-1 of morphine or 0.4 mg.kg-1 of carprofen. Anaesthesia was induced with propofol and maintained with isoflurane. Pain was assessed after OHE by a blind observer for 24h, by dynamic visual analogue scale (DIVAS), Glasgow (CMPS-SF), Melbourne (UMPS) and Colorado University pain scale (CSU). Animals reaching 33% of the UMPS score received rescue analgesia with morphine IM. Non parametric data were analysed by Kruskal-Wallis or Friedman tests where applicable, followed by Dunn´s test. Parametric data were analysed by two way ANOVA, followed by Tukey test. RESULTS: There were no differences among groups in number of rescue analgesia. Except for the DIVAS score where animals treated with morphine had the lowest score compared with AP and carprofen, at 1h after surgery, there were no other differences among groups. CONCLUSION: Acupuncture or pharmacopuncture were equally effective as morphine or carprofen to control postoperative pain in bitches undergoing ovariohysterectomy.
