Objective: To study the clinical effect of electroacupuncture combined with drug therapy on patients with acute cerebral infarction and its effect on serum TNF- α Level.
Methods: 82 patients with acute cerebral infarction hospitalized in a third-class hospital in China from May 2020 to May 2021 were randomly divided into experimental group and control group, with 41 cases in each group. The subjects in the control group were treated with conventional drugs, while the subjects in the experimental group were treated with electroacupuncture in addition to the same conventional drugs. The treatment lasted for 14 days, and the baseline data and NIHSS scores of the two groups were counted at the designated time.
Results: There was no significant difference between the two groups in baseline data and NIHSS scale score data on the first day of admission. After the experiment, the treatment effective rates of the experimental group and the control group were 81.58% and 55.26%, respectively There was a significant difference in MAS score data (P < 0.05), but there was no significant difference in MMSE score and ABC score data (P > 0.05). On the 3rd, 7th, and 14th day of admission, serum TNF in the two groups- α The differences in concentration data were statistically significant.
Conclusion: Electroacupuncture combined with drugs is helpful to improve the clinical therapeutic effect of patients with acute cerebral infarction and reduce serum TNF in a certain range- α Concentration.
