Observation on therapeutic effects of blood-letting puncture with cupping in acute trigeminal neuralgia.

Abstract Title: Observation on therapeutic effects of blood-letting puncture with cupping in acute trigeminal neuralgia. Abstract Source: Int Immunopharmacol. 2010 Jul;10(7):760-8. Epub 2010 Apr 22. PMID: 10437209 Abstract Author(s): Z Zhang Abstract: In the present paper, 45 cases of acute trigeminal neuralgia were treated and observed by comparative method. Results showed no significant difference in transient analgesic effect (P>0.05) but a significant difference in therapeutic effect (P<0.01) between the treatment and control groups. This indicates that blood-letting puncture with cupping is an effective therapy for the disease. Article Published Date : Jul 01, 2010

Observation on therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping on herpes zoster

Abstract Title: [Observation on therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping on herpes zoster]. Abstract Source: Zhongguo Zhen Jiu. 2009 Nov;29(11):887-90. PMID: 19994687 Abstract Author(s): Yin-ni Liu, Hong-xing Zhang, Guo-fu Huang, Ran Zou, Wei Wei Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To compare the therapeutic effect differences between electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting plus cupping and western medicine therapy. METHODS: Fifty-three cases were randomly divided into an observation group (n=31) and a control group (n=22). The observation group was treated by electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting with a plum-blossom needle at the affected parts plus cupping, once each day. The control group was treated by oral administration of Valaciclovir Hydrochlordide, Indomethacin, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B12. RESULTS: The cured and markedly effective rate of 96.8% in the observation group was better than that of 81.8% in the control group (P<0.05), and improvements of pain, pruritus, burning sensation and sleep in the observation group were superior to those of the control group (all P<0.01). CONCLUSION: Electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping is a better therapy for herpes zoster and its therapeutic effect is better than that of routine western medicine therapy.

Short-term Optic Disc Cupping Reversal in a Patient with Mild Juvenile Open-angle Glaucoma Due to Early Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension.

Related Articles Short-term Optic Disc Cupping Reversal in a Patient with Mild Juvenile Open-angle Glaucoma Due to Early Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension. J Glaucoma. 2018 Dec 10;: Authors: Umfress AC, Mawn LA, Joos KM Abstract PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to report a case of optic disc cupping reversal in an adult without significant intraocular pressure lowering treatment. PATIENT: A 20-year-old female with a history of mild juvenile open-angle glaucoma who developed subjective blurred vision and a decrease in cupping of her optic discs. RESULTS: Dilated examination demonstrated decreased cup-to-disc ratios in both eyes with slight blurring of the disc margin in the right eye. The appearance of both optic discs returned to baseline after weight loss therapy. CONCLUSION: An unexplained reduction of optic nerve cup-to-disc ratio should prompt a workup for other etiologies, such as increased intracranial pressure. Baseline photographs not subject to computerized scan obsolescence are extremely useful in monitoring the long-term appearance of asymmetric optic discs as an adjunct to the clinical examination.
