Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To verify the analgesic effect of acupuncture compound anesthesia in functionality nasal endoscopic sinus surgery (FNES).

METHODS:

Ninety patients undergoing FNES were randomly divided into three groups. Group A was treated with routine local anesthesia, and group B and C were treated with electroacupuncture at Yintang (EX-HN 3) and Yingxiang (LI 20) for 30 min before local anesthesia. Group B received routine local anesthesia, and group C received decrement local anesthesia. The dosage of narcotic, modified fingers pain scores and postoperative satisfaction scores were observed in three groups.

RESULTS:

The operative dosage of decicaine was (118.33 +/- 26.21) mg in group A, (100.83 +/- 4.56) mg in group B, and (71.33 +/- 8.90) mg in group C, with significant differences among the three groups (all P < 0.01), the lowest dosage was used in group C and the highest dosage in group A. The fingers pain scores of group B and C were both lower than that of group A (both P < 0.01), and the postoperative satisfaction scores of group B and C were both higher than that of group A (both P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION:

Acupuncture compound anesthesia can effectively alleviate the pain, decrease the dosage of local anesthetic, lower the discomfortableness and be helpful for safety of the patients during sinus surgery.
