Analgesic effect of buccal acupuncture on patients after lumbar spinal fusion: a randomized controlled trial – Published Article

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article titled “Effect of Buccal Acupuncture on Pain after Lumbar Spinal Fusion” explores the impact of buccal acupuncture on post-operative pain management in patients undergoing lumbar spinal fusion. The study involved sixty patients who were randomly divided into an observation group and a control group. The observation group received buccal acupuncture in addition to routine anesthesia, while the control group received only routine anesthesia. The study compared various factors such as the dosage of analgesic drugs, the number of remedial analgesia, VAS scores for pain evaluation, and the incidence of nausea and vomiting between the two groups. The results showed that the observation group had lower dosage of analgesic drugs, fewer cases of remedial analgesia, and lower incidence of nausea compared to the control group. Furthermore, the observation group had higher scores on the quality of recovery-15 scale, indicating better postoperative recovery. In conclusion, buccal acupuncture can effectively reduce postoperative analgesic drug use and promote early recovery in patients undergoing lumbar spinal fusion

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of buccal acupuncture on pain after lumbar spinal fusion.

METHODS: Sixty patients undergoing lumbar spinal fusion were randomly divided into an observation group (30 cases, 1 case dropped off) and a control group (30 cases, 1 case was eliminated). The patients in the control group were treated with routine anesthesia. On the basis of the control group, the patients in the observation group were treated with buccal acupuncture at bilateral back point, waist point, and sacral point for 30 min per treatment. The first acupuncture was given before anesthesia induction, and then once a day postoperation for two days, totally 3 treatments. The dosage of sufentanil, the number of remedial analgesia, and the incidence of nausea and vomiting within 48 h after surgery were compared between the two groups; rest and motion visual analogue scale (VAS) scores at 2 (T1), 8 (T2), 12 (T3), 24 (T4), and 48 (T5) h after surgery were observed; the quality of recovery-15 scale (QoR-15) at 24 and 48 h after surgery were evaluated.

RESULTS: The dosage of sufentanil and the number of remedial analgesia within 48 h after surgery in the observation group were lower than those in the control group (P<0.01). There was no significant statistically difference in rest and motion VAS scores between the two groups in T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5 (P>0.05). The QoR-15 scores in the observation group at 24 and 48 h after surgery were higher than those in the control group (P<0.01). The incidence of nausea in the observation group was lower than that in the control group (P<0.05).

CONCLUSION: Buccal acupuncture could reduce the amount of postoperative analgesic drugs of patients after lumbar spinal fusion, and promote early postoperative recovery.
