ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: We aimed to explore the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 1990 and 2011 fibromyalgia (FM) classification criteria’s items and the components of Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ) to identify features best discriminating FM features. Finally, we developed a combined FM diagnostic (C-FM) model using the FM’s key features. METHODS: The means and frequency on tender points (TPs), ACR 2011 components and FIQ items were calculated in the FM and non-FM (osteoarthritis [OA] and non-OA) patients. Then, two-step multiple logistic regression analysis was performed to order these variables according to their maximal statistical contribution in predicting group membership. Partial correlations assessed their unique contribution, and two-group discriminant analysis provided a classification table. Using receiver operator characteristic analyses, we determined the sensitivity and specificity of the final model. RESULTS: A total of 172 patients with FM, 75 with OA and 21 with periarthritis or regional pain syndromes were enrolled. Two steps multiple logistic regression analysis identified 8 key features of FM which accounted for 64.8% of variance associated with FM group membership: lateral epicondyle TP with variance percentages (36.9%), neck pain (14.5%), fatigue (4.7%), insomnia (3%), upper back pain (2.2%), shoulder pain (1.5%), gluteal TP (1.2%), and FIQ fatigue (0.9%). The C-FM model demonstrated a 91.4% correct classification rate, 91.9% for sensitivity and 91.7% for specificity. CONCLUSIONS: The C-FM model can accurately detect FM patients among other pain disorders. Re-inclusion of TPs along with saving of FM main symptoms in the C-FM model is a unique feature of this model.

ABSTRACT

With Jianyu (LI 15), Jianliao (TE 14) and Jianzhen (SI 9) for instance, the three acupoints used to treat shoulder bi syndrome by needle knife, and through traceability and researching constant structure, the acupoint position, insertion trace, manipulation and clinical significance of needle knife medicine were discussed. Accurate position is one of the characteristics of acupoints selection of needle knife medicine. As for the acupoints selection method, the mean of body surface localization is always used. The phanerous or palpable bone processes, muscles and tendons are taken as positioning marks; pressing areas where appear sour, numb, or distensible and other sensations is considered as the principle of press positioning. So acupoints position method is the combination of observation and palpation. Different insertion methods can effectively relieve the accretive bursae synovialis, tendon, joint capsule and the compressed nerve, so that shoulder bi syndrome is relieved.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To optimize the therapeutic programs for periarthritis of shoulder treated with acupuncture, moxibustion and kinetohterapy with orthogonal design method adopted.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The orthogonal design table of L8 (2(7)) hierarchical principle was used to randomly divide 192 patients of periarthritis of shoulder into 8 groups, 24 cases in each one. Separately, 4 factors and each different 2 levels were adopted in treatment, named acupuncture timing (factor A: A, acute stage, A2 adhesion stage), acupoint combination (factor B: B, local acupoints, B2 local acupoints and distal acupoints along meridians), filiform needling and warm needling therapy (factor C: C1 acupuncture with filiform needle, CZ acupuncture with filiform needle and warm needling therapy) and positive functional exercise (factor D: D1 without positive functional exercise, D2 with positive functional exercise). The treatment was given once a day, 10 treatments made one session and 2 sessions were required totally. The time points of observation were the point after 1 session of treatment and after 2 sessions of treatment. The short-form McGill pain questionnaire (MPQ) and shoulder joint motor disturbance score were adopted for evaluation.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>In the orthogonal design analysis, taking the hierarchical factors into consideration, the age was considered as the main factor in the evaluation of shoulder pain and shoulder motor disturbance (P<0.01), and the shoulder function grade apparently impacted pain evaluation and the efficacy on shoulder motor disturbance (P<0.01). The best combination of 4 factors and 2 levels were A1B1CzD2 and A2BC2D2. SAS statistical analysis showed that at acute stage and adhesion stage, CZ Dz , meaning acupuncture with fifiform needling and warm needling therapy combined with positive functional exercise, is the main factor of the improvements of shoulder motor function (P<0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>For periarthritis of shoulder at acute stage, the combined therapy of acupuncture at local acupoints, warm needling and positive functional exercise is adopted. At chronic stage, the combined therapy of acupuncture at local acupoints and distal acupoints, acupuncture with filiform needle and warm needling and positive functional exercise is the best program. Additionally, in clinical treatment, the patients' age, sex, shoulder joint function and duration of treatment should be considered comprehensively for the impacts on the efficacy.</p>

ABSTRACT

Cyclic neutropenia (CN) is a rare disorder characterized by repetitive episodes of neutropenia and is generally associated with fever, oral mucosal ulcers, and bacterial infections in the neutropenic episodes. It usually manifests initially in infancy or childhood as an autosomal dominant or sporadic condition; however, adult-onset CN may have an autoimmune etiology. Here, we report the first case of a 22-year old man with CN in Korea. He developed acute arthralgia and fever 4 weeks after an episode of lower gastrointestinal symptoms. Serial blood cell counts showed recurrent neutropenia at 3 week intervals. Further, laboratory examination for neutropenia, including neutrophil elastase gene sequencing, did not reveal any abnormality. His arthritis and periarthritis fluctuated during his course. Under the diagnosis of CN, he received regular G-CSF therapy with partial improvement.

ABSTRACT

In order to explore the clinical effect of combination therapy of small needle knife and Daqinjiu Tang in treatment of periarthritis of shoulder, 118 patients with periarthritis of shoulder were divided into control group (59) and experimental group (59) evenly and randomly. Control group received treatment of small needle knife while experimental group received combination therapy of small needle knife and Daqinjiu Tang. Clinical efficacy, shoulder pain and shoulder function were assessed and analyzed between groups before and after treatments. It was showed that the total therapeutic efficacy of experimental group was significantly higher than that of control group (P < 0.05, chi2 = 6.781); Shoulder pain and function were improved after treatments for all patients (P < 0.05), but more significantly in experimental group than in treatment group (P < 0.05). It is suggested that there is confirmed therapeutic effects of combination therapy of small needle knife and Daqingjiu Tang in treatment of periarthritis of shoulder, better than utilizing small needle knife therapy alone.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To evaluate the efficacy of abdominal acupuncture for adhesion-stage shoulder periarthritis.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>One hundred and fifty-seven cases of shoulder periarthritis were randomly divided into an abdominal acupuncture group (79 cases) and a body acupuncture group (78 cases). The abdominal acupuncture was applied at Zhongwan (CV 12), Shangqu (KI 17) and Huaroumen (ST 24) in the abdominal acupuncture group while conventional acupuncture was applied at Jianyu (LI 15), Jianliao (TE 14) and Jianzhen (SI 9) in the body acupuncture group. The treatment was given three times a week for both groups and ten times made an observation course. Before and after treatment, visual analogue scale (VAS) was adopted for pain assessment and functional activity score (Mallet score) was used for shoulder joint function assessment for all the patients. Also the efficacy of both groups was compared.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The total effective rate in the abdominal acupuncture group was 92.4% (73/79), which was superior to 71.8% (56/78) in the body acupuncture group. The score of VAS after the treatment was 2.58 +/- 1.64 in the abdominal acupuncture group while 3.12 +/- 1.93 in the body acupuncture group, which had no statistical significance between each other (P > 0.05). The functional activity score after the treatment was 8.34 +/- 3.02 in the abdominal acupuncture group while 7.49 +/- 3.36 in the body acupuncture group, which had no statistical significance between each other (P > 0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The abdominal acupuncture is an ideal treatment for adhesion-stage shoulder periarthritis, which has better total efficacy than conventional acupuncture. It achieves the same effect in relieving pain and improving functional activity as conventional acupuncture, but also has an advantage at fast selection of acupoint and less discomfort of needling sensation.</p>

ABSTRACT

The clinical practice of bloodletting method on the face is introduced in this paper through 4 medical cases: post-operative periarthritis of the shoulder in lung cancer, dizziness and vertigo, protrusion of lumbar intervertebral disc and keratitis. It is believed that the change in facial luster, vein condition on the face, the site with the most obvious change in facial luster and local skin abnormality are commonly regarded as the reaction points or areas of facial disease. According to the reaction points or areas on the face and in association with the syndrome differentiation in Lingshu: Wuse (Miraculous Pivot : Five Colors), the acupoints are selected and stimulated with bloodletting method in the treatment of some difficult and complicated cases, and the good efficacy could be obtained. But, this therapeutic method needs a further research and deserves to be promoted in practice.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To investigate therapeutic effects of balance acupuncture on scapulohumeral periarthritis (SP)and the mechanisms.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Thirty male New Zealand rabbits were randomly divided into a blank group (group B), a model group (group M) and a balance acupuncture group (group BA) with 10 rabbits in each group. SP model was established by using persistent mechanical strain and ice compress. Balance acupuncture at "Jiantong" point was applied in the animals in group BA, but not in the rabbits of the other two groups. Joint movement and pathological changes in tissues around the affected shoulder joint were observed, and interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta), 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in plasma and the affected surrounding tissues, and DNA contents in tendon of supraspinatus muscle were measured.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The content of plasma 5-HT in group BA [(18.16 +/- 4.44) ng/mL] was significantly lower than that in group M [(23.28 +/- 5.89) ng/mL] (P < 0.05), but without obvious difference in IL-1beta content between the two groups (P > 0.05). Compared with group M, the contents of IL-1beta, 5-HT in affected surrounding tissues, and DNA expression in tendon of supraspinatus muscle were significantly lowered to va rious extent in group BA (P < 0.01, P < 0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Balance acupuncture can effectively improve local and systemic pathological situation induced by SP by way of reducing pain-producing factors, inflammatory factors and DNA expression to alleviate local organization and adhesions in rabbits with experimental SP.</p>
