Jing Sun, Yi Liang, Chao Wang, Xiaomei Shao, Jianqiao Fang
The clinical manifestation and clinical diagnosis and treatment of acupuncture for persistent somatoform pain disorder (PSPD) were observed to explore its etiology. It is found that the causative factor of PSPD is probably relevant with pain memory induced by the negative emotions during the first attack of pain, which is in the category of "depression" in TCM. In clinical diagnosis, the medical history should be explored to discover the potential etiology and determine the diagnosis. In treatment, the root cause should be considered, focusing on mind and qi regulation and associating with analgesia...

The characteristics and principles of acupoint selection in auricular plaster therapy for hypertension were explored. By searching CNKI (search time from 1950 to November of 2015), VIP database (search time from 1989 to November of 2015) and WanFang Database (search time from 1983 to November of 2015), the clinical research literature regarding auricular plaster therapy for hypertension was collected, and frequency statistics method was used for analysis. As a result, totally 117 articles were included. The auricular points with frequency from high to low were Jiangyagou, Shenmen (TF4), Gan (CO12), Xin (CO15), Shen (CO10), Jiaogan (AH6a), Pizhixia (AT4), Jiangyadian and Neifenmi...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the differences in the therapeutic effects on chronic perianal eczema between auricular point sticking therapy and auricular sticking pseudo-press therapy on the basis of the treatment with western medication. METHODS: Ninety patients were randomized into an auricular therapy group and an auricular pseudo-press therapy group (pseudo group), 45 cases in each one. The western medication was used in both of the groups. In the auricular therapy group, the auricular sticking method with semen vaccariae was added at Fengxi (SF1,zi), Shenshangxian (TG2p), Duipingjian (AT1,2,4i), Fei (CO14), Pi (CO13), Gangmen (HX5)...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the clinical effects of acupuncture combined with auricular point sticking based on the western medication for post stroke depression (PSD). METHODS: Sixty patients with PSD were randomly assigned into an acupuncture plus auricular application group (a combination group) and a medication group, 30 cases in each one. 20 mg paroxetine hydrochloride was prescribed orally in the medication group, once a day for continuous 8 weeks. Based on the above treatment, 30-minute acupuncture was used in the combination group for 8 weeks at Baihui (GV 20), Sishencong (EX-HN 1), Shenting (GV 24), Yintang (GV 29), Shenmen (HT 7), Neiguan (PC 6), Taichong (LR 3), Hegu (LI 4), Zusanli (ST 36), Sanyinjiao (SP 6) and Fenglong (ST 40), once the other day and three times a week...

BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is defined as an abnormal communication between the high flow arterial system and the low flow venous network, which directly connects the arterial feeding vessels and the near draining veins without normal intervening capillary bed. Arteriovenous fistula incurs in preauricular region is exceeding rare. Most of these fistulae occur as a result of an iatrogenic injury, the volume is small, feeding and draining vessels of feeding and draining are simple, and can be cured easily...

REVIEW
Christen Lennon, Sivakumar Chinnadurai
Congenital auricular deformities often can be corrected by neonatal ear molding techniques, which have evolved significantly over a 25-year period with commercially available molding systems now available. Indications for molding and methodology for best optimizing results have been well described in the literature, although recent studies have explored methodology for reduction in the cost of technique and also called for increased awareness among pediatric practitioners of the importance of early institution of therapy...

Florian Bernard, Philippe Mercier, Marc Sindou
Vago-glossopharyngeal neuralgia (VGPN) is a rarely seen disease when compared to trigeminal neuralgia. When the pain is resistant to medical therapy, microvascular decompression can be performed if a vascular conflict is suspected on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In addition, arachnoid pathology may play a role in VGPN. We report two cases of VGPN caused by tethered arachnoid, associated with a vascular contact in which pain was reduced by freeing rootlets from arachnoid compression. We report two cases relating to 50-year-old and 30-year-old men with a history of electric shooting pain triggered by swallowing in the right pharyngeal and auricular regions...

Background: The great auricular nerve (GAN) provides sensory innervation to the skin around the auricle. Although disorder of this nerve has been reported, great auricular neuralgia, as reported by Blumenthal in 1992, is uncommon. The authors report a case of auricular paresthesia that responded well to electroacupuncture treatment (EAT). Case: A man in his 60s was consulted in the clinic after a 6-month history of experiencing tingling sensations of the skin around the auricle. General degenerative deformity of the cervical spine was observed using computed radiography scans and magnetic resonance imaging; tactile hyperesthesia in the skin of the GAN area was also noted...

Objective: The hot flash is a common vasomotor disorder that causes distress in menopausal women and that can be debilitating in men with prostate cancer who are treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). The utility of auricular electroacupuncture (AEA) was tested exclusively for a small cohort of men with ADT-induced vasomotor symptoms while the men underwent a course of curative radiotherapy. Materials and Methods: Prior to and during radiotherapy treatment, men with vasomotor symptoms were given repeated questionnaires regarding severity and frequency of hot flashes, quality of life (QoL), and sleep over a 6-week span of an AEA protocol...

Background: Fibromyalgia and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) are both chronic pain syndromes with pathophysiologic mechanisms related to autonomic nervous system dysregulation and central sensitization.  Both syndromes are considered difficult to treat with conventional pain therapies. Case presentations: Here we describe a female veteran with fibromyalgia and a male veteran with CRPS, both of whom failed multiple pharmacologic, physical and psychological therapies for pain, but responded to percutaneous electrical neural field stimulation (PENFS) targeted at the auricular branches of the cranial nerves...

PURPOSE: Lipodystrophy (LD) patients suffer from loss or maldistribution of subcutaneous adipose tissue accompanied by dysregulation of several adipocyte-secreted factors, e.g., leptin. The effect of recombinant leptin (metreleptin) therapy on facial soft tissue volume in patients with non-human immunodeficiency virus LD has not been quantified to date. METHODS: Eight LD patients (six female, two male; six familial partial LD [FPLD], two generalized LD) were treated with metreleptin over 1 year...

Alport syndrome is a hereditary glomerular basement membrane disease caused by mutations in the COL4A3/4/5 genes encoding the type IV collagen alpha 3-5 chains. Most cases of Alport syndrome are inherited as X-linked dominant, and some as autosomal recessive or autosomal dominant. The primary manifestations are hematuria, proteinuria, and progressive renal failure, whereas some patients present with sensorineural hearing loss and ocular abnormalities. Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blockade is proven to delay the onset of renal failure by reducing proteinuria...
