Abstract ( 20 )     PDF (278KB) ( 14 )  
This research evaluates the effect of acupuncture on postoperative pain in patients undergoing standard sternotomy. Perioperative acupuncture treatment has a significant analgesic effect on short-term pain for patients undergoing anterior midline thoracotomy. The application of acupuncture in acute pain should be widely recommended.

Objective: To observe the effect of perioperative acupuncture on postoperative pain in patients undergoing standard sternotomy. Methods: 57 patients who received standard median sternotomy were randomly divided into acupuncture group (30 cases) and control group (27 cases). The control group was treated with routine operation and nursing, and the acupuncture group was treated with acupuncture for 10 days on the basis of perioperative period. The pain levels of the two groups before and after operation were compared. Results: The pain level of the acupuncture group was significantly lower than that of the control group on the 2nd, 10th, and 30th days after operation (P < 0.05), and the short-term pain levels in the two groups were statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion: The perioperative acupuncture treatment has a significant analgesic effect on short-term pain for patients undergoing anterior midline thoracotomy, and it is helpful for patients to recover quickly after surgery.

9TMR Non-Drug Therapy. 2020, 3 (2): 53-62.   https://doi.org/10.12032/TMRND20200525009
Abstract ( 32 )     PDF (870KB) ( 163 )  
Background: To systematically evaluate the effect of pelvic floor muscle training with biofeedback v.s. pelvic floor muscle exercise alone on stress urinary incontinence in women. Methods: PubMed, the Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Ovid, Ebsco, PEDro, WanFang Data, VIP and CNKI databases were electronically searched to collect randomized controlled trials that meet inclusion criteria. After quality assessment, meta-analysis was conducted by RevMan 5.3 software. Results: A total of 8 randomized controlled trials were included. The results of meta-analysis supported the effectiveness of biofeedback on improving pelvic floor muscle strength (MD = 4.67, 95% CI (1.86, 7.49), P = 0.001), increasing short (up to 1 hour) pad test (SMD = −1.11, 95% CI (−1.84, −0.37), P = 0.003), enhancing quality of life (SMD = −0.34, 95% CI (−0.67, −0.01), P = 0.04) and social activity index (MD = 0.1, 95% CI (0.06, 0.15), P < 0.001). Conclusion: Pelvic floor muscle training with biofeedback could improve pelvic floor muscles’ strength and help these patients integrate into society, more high quality studies are required to verify above conclusions.
Case Report

Min Zhang, Hong You
9TMR Non-Drug Therapy. 2020, 3 (2): 63-68.   https://doi.org/10.12032/TMRND20200603010
Abstract ( 16 )     PDF (380KB) ( 7 )  
Wallenberg syndrome is a special type of medulla oblongata infarction with many and severe clinical dysfunction, which is dorsolateral medullary syndrome. Wallenberg syndrome can have various initial symptoms due to different damaged parts. Typical clinical manifestations of the syndrome include dizziness, vomiting, dysphagia, cross sensory disturbance, ataxia, etc. Based on the complexity of functional anatomy, infarction in the medulla oblongata can produce various types of clinical symptoms or signs depending on the location. We describe the clinical comprehensive management of a 71-year-old man who presented with typical Wallenberg syndrome. Through early diagnosis and comprehensive clinical management, the prognosis of patient can be effectively improved.

9TMR Non-Drug Therapy. 2020, 3 (2): 69-78.   https://doi.org/10.12032/TMRND20200408006
Abstract ( 39 )     PDF (691KB) ( 17 )  

Traditional Chinese spinal orthopedic manipulation (TCSOM) is an external therapeutic method of traumatology and orthopedics of traditional Chinese medicine to treat trauma and set bone. The doctor exerts his force through thumb or bilateral upper extremities on the spine or acupoints of the patient, applying various manipulatory techniques according to the conditions. Correcting the abnormal position or state of the spine serve as the most important theoretical foundation for TCSOM to treat spinal disorders and spinogenic disorders. This paper presented the definition and function of the TCSOM, with a special focus on how to make a preliminary diagnosis of spinal segments disorders, and the indications of TCSOM in different spinal segments.

Lyu Cheng, Han Wang, Wen-Jiao Li, Yun Ning, Chang-De Jin
9TMR Non-Drug Therapy. 2020, 3 (2): 79-87.   https://doi.org/10.12032/TMRND20200427008
Abstract ( 33 )     PDF (485KB) ( 8 )  
Objective: To systematically evaluate the effects of mindfulness therapy on oncogenic fatigue in patients with lung cancer. Methods: Computer searching was conducted in the Cochrane Library, PubMed, Embase and other databases. Combined with manual search, randomized controlled trials about the effect of mindfulness therapy on the cancer-related fatigue in patients with lung cancer were collected. The search time was from the establishment of the database to December 2019. Two researchers independently screened the literature, extracted the data, and evaluated the risk of bias in the included study. RevMan 5.3 software was used for meta-analysis. Results: A total of 448 patients were included in 6 randomized controlled trials. Meta-analysis results show that mindfulness therapy can help reduce carcinogenic fatigue in patients with lung cancer (standardized mean difference (SMD) = −1.67, 95% confidence interval (CI) (−2.09, −1.24), P < 0.001), and improve anxiety (SMD = −1.33, 95% CI (−2.53, −0.13), P = 0.03), relieve depression (SMD = −1.43, 95% CI (−2.13, −0.73), P < 0.001). Conclusion: There is limited evidence that mindfulness therapy can improve cancer-related fatigue, anxiety, and depression in patients with lung cancer. Limited by the number and quality of included studies, the above conclusions need to be further validated by high-quality clinical trials.
