OBJECTIVE: To observe the efficacy differences among acupuncture at Neiguan (PC 6) and Zusanli (ST 36), dolantin and scopolamine in treatment of acute renal colic, and to verify the clinical effect of acupuncture at Neiguan (PC 6) and Zusanli (ST 36).
METHODS: Two hundred and forty patients were randomly divided into an acupuncture group, a scopolamine group and a dolantin group, 80 cases in each group. The acupuncture group was treated by acupuncture at unilateral or bilateral Neiguan (PC 6) and Zusanli (ST 36). The scopolamine group was treated by intramuscular injection of scopolamine combined with intravenous drip of scopolamine, and the dolantin group was treated by intramuscular injection of dolantin. The clinical therapeutic effects were observed 30 min after drug administration or acupuncture, and the onset time of effect and adverse reactions were compared among the groups.
RESULTS: The total effective rate of 95.0% (76/80) in the acupuncture group had a similar therapeutic effect to 92.5% (74/80) in dolantin group (P>0.05), which were both superior to 76.3% (61/80) in scopolamine group (both P<0.05). The onset time of (13.24 +/- 2.12) min in the acupuncture group was significant earlier than (23.11 +/- 6.22) min in scopolamine group and (22.17 +/- 3.15) min in dolantin group (both P<0.05), and compared with the other two groups, the adverse reactions in the acupuncture group were significant decreased (both P<0.05).
CONCLUSION: Acupuncture at Neiguan (PC 6) and Zusanli (ST 36) has a good analgesic effect with a low incidence of adverse reactions, which is superior to that of dolantin and scopolamine.
