MedLine Citation:
PMID:  12024072     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
CONCLUSIONS: none of the first three studies showed that the stimulation of the acupoints produces clinically important reductions in anaesthetic requirement. In contrast, Kotani et al. showed that at least some acupuncture techniques provide substantial postoperative analgesia and significantly reduce opioid requirement.
