108 cases of hemiplegia caused by stroke: the relationship between CT scan results, clinical findings and the effect of acupuncture treatment

By Chen YM; Fang YA.

[108 cases of hemiplegia caused by stroke: the relationship between CT scan results, clinical findings and the effect of acupuncture treatment.]

Acupuncture and Electro-Therapeutics Research, 1990, 15(1):9-17.
(UI: 90320430)
AT: UCLA Biomed W1 AC999T
(PE title: Acupuncture & electro-therapeutics research)

Abstract: The location of the pathological focus on the film of CT scan was related to the degree of paralysis, and to the result of acupuncture in hemiplegia patients.

In retrospective analysis of the clinical data, we found some inter-linking relationships. In general, early treatment (first 3 weeks) with acupuncture produces better result (improvement in 90.9 of the patients treated) than the treatment initiated three weeks after stroke (improvement in 71.4 of the patients treated).
