OBJECTIVE: To master the syndrome patterns characteristics and explore the effective therapy methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for cardiac syndrome X (CSX).
METHODS: The TCM syndrome characteristics were mastered and the TCM intervention programs were determined by clinical investigations for TCM syndrome patterns characteristics of CSX patients. Then, the clinical efficacy studies on TCM intervention for CSX were carried out through randomized controlled trials.
RESULTS: CSX is a clinical syndrome with the main manifestations of chest pain and chest stuffiness, and Qi stagnation, phlegm retention and blood stasis are the basic symptoms of CSX. As a result, the Qi-regulating, chest-relaxing and blood-activating therapy integrated with some Western Medicines was adopted for treatment. The effect of Qi-regulating, chest-relaxing and blood-activating therapy can reduce the frequency and degree of angina, improve the symptoms and exercise the tolerance of patients, inhibit the inflammatory response of vascular walls and protect the function of vascular endothelial cells, which is better than that of the simple and conventional Western Medicine alone.
CONCLUSION: A good effect was achieved in the integration of Chinese and Western Medicines for CSX. The therapy is worthy to be applied further in clinical practice. On the other hand, more long-term and randomised controlled studies with large samples are still required to further determine the clinical efficacy and safety of the therapy.
