Abstract

Objective: To test the clinical curative effect of Jiutengzhuyu tablets, a patented Chinese vine-derived drug used for promoting blood circulation, on women with oviducal obstruction.

Methods: Patients with tubal infertility were divided randomly into two groups: 58 patients in the treatment group and 57 in a control group. The treated patients took Jiutengzhuyu tablets orally for 25 days. The control group received an intrauterine infusion of 5 mg dexamethasone sodium phosphate, 4000 units of chymotrypsin, 80 000 units of gentamicin sulfate dissolved in 20 mL of normal saline at 1 mL/min. After 3 months of treatment, the curative effect on tubal patency was assessed and a 1-year follow-up visit was used to document any pregnancies.

Results: The total effective rate was 78% in the treatment group and 32% in the control group with a statistically significant difference (chi2 = 24.57, P < 0.01).

Conclusion: Jiutengzhuyu was effective in treating infertility caused by tubal infertility with a Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis of blood stasis.
