Abstract: The authors study on abdominal surgical patients (39 cases) who were
randomly divided into the acupuncture and control group. In the acupuncture
group, the needle inserted into Zusanli (St.36) and Sanyinjiao (Sp. 6)
points at 12-24 h after operation and observed the time of the first
excretion through anus. Sero-enzyme activity of GPT, GOT and gamma-GT
determined before operation and at 1, 3, 5, 7 days after operation.
results showed that the time of excretion in the acupuncture group (57.78
+/- 23.94 h) was obviously faster than the control one (86.14 +/- 20.43 h),
P less than 0.001). It suggested that acupuncture has the effect of
promoting intestinal motion.
After operation sero-enzyme activity was
raised 2-3 times than before. It showed that the surgical trauma directly
or indirectly impair cells to release enzyme into blood, but the time of
reversing to normal level of sero-enzyme activity in the acupuncture group
was obviously faster. There is possibility that acupuncture has the effect
of regulating reactivity of organism on trauma and promoting the repair of
