Abstract

Objective: To observe therapeutic effect of acupuncture combined with inductance coupling for treatment of delayed union and nonunion.

Methods: Sixty cases with delayed union and nonunion after operation were randomly divided into 2 groups. The observation group (n=30) received acupuncture with Shenshu (BL 23), Mingmen (GV 4), Guanyuan (CV 4), Qihai (CV 6), Zusanli (ST 36), Xuanzhong (GB 39) and Taichong (LR 3) selected as main points, in combination with inductance coupling treatment and the routine treatment. The patients (n=30) in the control group received routine treatment. Bony callus growth was observed by X-ray 30 and 120 days after treatment respectively.

Results: Twenty-three cases 30 days after treatment and 29 cases 120 days after treatment were found the bone callus growth in the observation group , and 11 cases and 17 cases in the control group, with significant difference between the two groups (P<0.05), the observation group being better than the control group, with no bad event and side effect.

Conclusion: Acupuncture combined with inductance coupling is a good method for promoting fracture healing.
