OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of auriculotherapy with miniature bian needle on anxious emotion, the condition of angina pectoris attack and sleep quality in the patients with anxiety after percutaneous coronary intervention (post-PCI). METHODS: A total of 74 eligible patients of post-PCI combined with anxious depression were randomized into an auriculotherapy group (37 cases, 2 cases dropped out) and a control group (37 cases, 3 cases dropped out). In the auriculotherapy group, on the base of the conventional secondary prevention medication for coronary heart disease (CHD), auriculotherapy with miniature bian needle was supplemented. In the control group, a proper physical exercise was combined on the base of the secondary prevention medication for CHD. The duration of treatment was 4 weeks in two groups. Separately, the score of Hamilton anxiety scale (HAMA), the score Seattle angina questionnaire (SAQ) and the score of Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) were assessed in the patients of the two groups before and after treatment. RESULTS: After treatment, the score of HAMA, the score of each item of SAQ and PSQI score were all improved significantly as compared with those before treatment respectively in both the auriculotherapy group and the control group (P<0.001, P<0.05). After treatment, HAMA score, PSQI score and the scores of physical limitation (PL), anginal stability (AS), anginal frequency (AF) and treatment satisfaction (TS) in SAQ in the auriculotherapy group were all better than those in the control group (P<0.001, P<0.05). The total effective rate was 91.43% (32/35) in the auriculotherapy group, obviously higher than 58.82% (20/34) in the control group (P<0.001). CONCLUSION: Auriculotherapy with miniature bian needle effectively relieves anxious emotions and the condition of angina pectrois attack and improves sleep quality in the post-PCI patients with anxiety.

BACKGROUND: Primary dysmenorrhea (PD) is the most common complaint in young women and adolescents. Side effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can limit their use. Therefore, non-pharmacological pain relief methods such as auriculotherapy may play an important role in PD management. This study was conducted to compare the effect of auriculotherapy and mefenamic acid on the severity and systemic symptoms of PD. METHODS: In a randomized clinical trial, 83 students were randomized into two groups. In the auriculotherapy group, electrical stimulation of the ear was conducted once a week for two menstrual cycles. In each cycle close to menstruation, ear seeds were inserted on pressure points to be pressed in times of pain. In the mefenamic acid group, subjects took mefenamic acid capsules upon seeing the initial symptoms of menstruation until the pain reduces. The primary outcomes were mean pain intensity and systemic symptoms associated with it. Pain intensity was measured through the visual analog scale (VAS) and the verbal multidimensional scoring system (VMS). Systemic symptoms were assessed using VMS, as well as the yes/no question form. RESULTS: Mean pain intensity with the VAS was significantly lower in the auriculotherapy group than the mefenamic acid group in the first and second cycles of intervention. There was a significant difference in VMS grade between both groups during the second cycle of intervention. In terms of the systemic symptoms in the second cycle of intervention, no subjects had dysmenorrhea grade 3 (common systemic symptoms) in the auriculotherapy group. Whereas in the mefenamic acid group, 16.7% of the subjects still had dysmenorrhea grade 3. There was no significant difference between the two groups in the frequency of systemic symptoms of PD. There was a significant decrease in the frequency of fatigue and diarrhea in both groups. However, there was a significant reduction in the frequency of nausea, headache, and anger in the auriculotherapy group. CONCLUSION: Mean pain intensity with the VAS was lower with the auriculotherapy. Also, 65.9% of auriculotherapy group subjects were in the dysmenorrhea grades 0 and 1. Therefore, auriculotherapy is recommended because of its fewer complications and more effect on PD. TRIAL REGISTRATION: IRCT20181207041873N1. Registered on February 24, 2019.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the evidence available in the literature on the use of auriculotherapy in adults and elderly people with lower urinary tract symptoms. METHOD: An integrative literature review. Primary study search was carried out in nine relevant health databases. The characterization of studies regarding the method of application of auriculotherapy was based on the Revised Standards for Reporting Interventions in Clinical Trials of Acupuncture recommendations. RESULTS: 296 studies were found, 17 pre-selected and eight included in the review. Favorable results from auriculotherapy were evidenced in specific populations, such as elderly men with prostatic disorders and individuals undergoing surgical procedures. The main urinary symptoms addressed were frequency, urgency, nocturia, incomplete voiding, intermittency, weak flow, effort to start urination, incontinence, and urinary retention. CONCLUSION: Despite the limited number of studies and weaknesses with regard to sample size and different intervention protocols, it is suggested that auriculotherapy, associated or not with other complementary therapies, may contribute to lower urinary tract symptom control in adults and elderly people.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of auricular acupressure (AA) on cancer-related fatigue (CRF), sleep disturbance and anxiety in lung cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients were recruited from the respiratory department of a general hospital and were randomised into three groups. A 9-week course of AA using Semen Vaccariae (SV) (Group A)/AA using magnetic beads (Group B)/routine care (Group C) was implemented. CRF scores were used as the primary outcome while the sleep and anxiety scores were the secondary outcomes. Analysis of variance and least significant difference t-test were used to determine the intergroup differences and paired-sample t-test was used for the intragroup comparison. RESULTS: 100 lung cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy were included. Compared with Group C, AA could significantly alleviate CRF (F:24.63, p<0.01), especially for physical and affective fatigue and Group A was more effective for managing physical fatigue than Group B in per-protocol (PP) (-1.75 (-2.69 to -0.82), p<0.01)/Intention to Treat analysis (ITT) (-1.41 (-2.39 to -0.41), p=0.01) analysis. However, AA had no effect on cognitive fatigue. Compared with Group C, only Group A produced significant improvements in sleep quality in PP analysis (-1.17 (-2.23 to -0.10), p=0.03) while it yielded negative results in ITT analysis (-0.82 (-1.74 to 0.10), p=0.08). Compared with Group C, AA could significantly reduce anxiety in PP analysis (F:9.35, p<0.01) while there was no statistical difference between Group B and Group C (-0.95 (-2.81 to 0.90), p=0.31), Group A and Group B (-1.26 (-3.12 to 0.59), p=0.18) in ITT analysis. CONCLUSION: AA can alleviate CRF of lung cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, especially for physical and affective fatigue. AA using SV is more effective for physical fatigue while AA using magnetic beads works better for anxiety. However, AA cannot improve the sleep quality.

O tabagismo traz consigo aspectos complexos que permeiam a dependência física, psicológica e comportamental. O hábito de fumar é considerado um fator de risco primário para as principais causas de mortalidade no mundo. Ultimamente, a Medicina Tradicional e Complementar ganhou força e valor em diversos países, através de intervenções terapêuticas para a cessação do tabaco. As Práticas Integrativas e Complementares (PIC) são tratamentos que utilizam recursos terapêuticos pautados em conhecimentos tradicionais, que previnem e tratam diversas doenças e também atuam como tratamentos paliativos de algumas doenças crônicas. Dentro das PIC, a terapêutica da Auriculoterapia pode ser utilizada como tratamento complementar na cessação do tabagismo, sendo bem aceita por grande parte dos pacientes, pois é minimamente invasiva, tem poucos efeitos colaterais e é considerada um método alternativo de baixo custo, quando comparado a outros produtos. É possível perceber a significativa escassez de estudos na Atenção Primária à Saúde (APS), envolvendo Auriculoterapia, Terapia de Reposição de Nicotina (TRN) e cessação do tabagismo. Sabe-se que o manejo da cessação de tabaco ainda é um desafio para os profissionais da APS. Por esse motivo, o Ministério da Saúde incluiu a Auriculoterapia no rol das PIC e vem promovendo capacitações vinculadas ao tema aos profissionais do Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS). Diante dessa perspectiva, o presente trabalho teve por objetivo propor um protocolo de atendimento em grupos de cessação do tabagismo com a associação de Auriculoterapia como método complementar na APS, a fim de contribuir para o desempenho dos profissionais de saúde, capacitados na prática de Auriculoterapia na APS. Espera-se que o presente protocolo favoreça a organização e realização das atividades coletivas de grupos direcionadas à cessação do hábito de fumar na APS. (AU)

A auriculoterapia constitui-se uma técnica de estimulação em pontos específicos do pavilhão auricular, sendo considerada um método complementar no cuidado em saúde, de baixo custo e com raros efeitos adversos. Apesar de estar incluída na Política Nacional de Práticas Integrativas e Complementares, ainda se percebe pouca apropriação dos cirurgiões-dentistas acerca desta técnica. Assumindo uma perspectiva qualitativa e ensaística, o presente trabalho intenciona apresentar a auriculoterapia como prática integrativa e complementar na odontologia, baseando-se na literatura histórica, científica e filosófica chinesa e ocidental. Considerada a subjetividade do olhar da pesquisadora, propõe-se a apresentação da técnica a partir da Medicina Tradicional Chinesa (MTC) e a discussão de possibilidades de seu uso na clínica odontológica de Atenção Primária à Saúde (APS), contribuindo, igualmente, para a difusão desse conhecimento entre profissionais trabalhadores da odontologia.

OBJECTIVE: To identify evidence in scientific literature about the effects of auriculotherapy for treating stress, anxiety and depression in adults and older adults by analyzing the main protocols for applying the intervention. METHOD: A systematic review was performed following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA). Detailed individual search strategies were applied in February 2019 in the BDENF, CINAHL, Cochrane, CUMED, Embase, LILACS, PEDro, PubMed, Scopus, Segunda Opinião Formativa (SOF) and Web of Science databases. The methodological quality of the studies was assessed using the Jadad Scale. RESULTS: A total of 24 from the 859 articles found comprised the study sample. Of these, 22 (92%) showed a positive effect of auriculotherapy for stress, anxiety or depression. CONCLUSION: The available evidence on the effects of auriculotherapy on stress, anxiety and depression proves the effectiveness of the technique in adults and older adults. However, the studies showed methodological weaknesses. Although the identified protocols are different, there are frequent similar points including Shenmen, Kidney, Autonomic Nervous System, Heart, Brain Stem and Liver 1 and 2 which can be used in new studies.

OBJECTIVE: To summarize and critically evaluate the evidence pertaining to the effectiveness and safety of auriculotherapy for breastfeeding. METHODS: We performed a systematic search of 10 databases from their inception dates to May 15, 2017. Randomized controlled trials evaluating the effectiveness and safety of auriculotherapy for breastfeeding were included. Risk of bias was assessed using the Cochrane risk of bias tool. RESULTS: This review included 31 randomized controlled trials with 5389 participants. Owing to the obvious clinical or statistical heterogeneity, a Meta-analysis was not conducted. Twenty-nine studies compared auriculotherapy plus routine care with routine care alone. No consistent adjunctive effect of auriculotherapy was observed in increasing the volume of milk production (9 studies showed significant results in favor of auriculotherapy and 5 did not) and serum prolactin level (7 studies showed significant results in favor of auriculotherapy and 2 did not), and in facilitating the initiation of milk secretion (10 studies showed significant results in favor of auriculotherapy and 7 did not). Two studies compared auriculotherapy with no treatment. Auriculotherapy as a monotherapy showed significant effects in increasing serum prolactin level and facilitating the onset of milk secretion; however, it was limited and inconclusive because only two studies were included in this comparison. The subgroup analysis of women who underwent cesarean delivery showed inconsistent results with respect to all outcomes. No serious adverse events were reported with the use of auriculotherapy. The methodological quality of the included studies was generally poor. CONCLUSION: Although some studies showed positive results, no definite conclusion about the effectiveness and safety of auriculotherapy for breastfeeding could be drawn, owing to the low methodological quality of the included studies and the heterogeneity among trials. Large-scale, well-designed studies are warranted on this topic.

Sleep bruxism is defined as a behavior that causes masticatory muscle activities during sleep. Sleep bruxism in childhood leads to consequences, which may vary from teeth wear in deciduous dentition to temporomandibular disfunction symptoms. There's no data that demonstrates improvement of children with sleep bruxism during and after auricular acupuncture treatment. Objective: Therefore, this case report series aimed to evaluate the effect of auriculotherapy on children presenting sleep bruxism. Methods: Twelve patients were included in this study, in the mean age of 6,9. The diagnosis was evaluated by the question: "Does your kid grind their teeth while sleeping?". Treatment was performed by an acupuncture specialist in a standardized way. The therapy was given for three weeks and the effect was evaluated through a sleep diary, in which the parents noted whether or not their child grinded teeth while sleeping before (baseline) and during therapy (T1 to T3). Sleep bruxism was categorized as presence or absence of nocturnal teeth grinding and the frequency varied from 0 to 7 (baseline), 0 to 5 (T1), 0 to 7 (T2) and 0 to 4 (T3) between patients. The intensity of the reported sleep bruxism was compared according to the periods by pared T-test ( =0.05). Results: It was observed that the frequency of reports decreased significantly from baseline to T3. Conclusion: These results suggest that ear acupuncture may be an alternative therapy for sleep bruxism in childhood, once it demonstrated to reduce its frequency in this study, although patients may present different effects to therapy due to biological variability.

Introdução: Bruxismo do sono é definido como um comportamento que causa atividades musculares durante o sono. Na infância, leva a consequências que podem variar de desgaste dentário na dentição decídua a sintomas de disfunção temporomandibular. Não há estudos que demonstrem melhora de casos de crianças com bruxismo do sono durante e após tratamento com auriculoterapia. Objetivo: portanto, esta série de casos visou avaliar o efeito da auriculoterapia em crianças apresentando este quadro. Métodos: Doze pacientes foram inclusos neste estudo, com a media de idade de 6,9. O diagnóstico foi avaliado pela pergunta "Seu filho range os dentes quando dorme?". O tratamento foi executado por um especialista em acupuntura de forma padronizada. A terapia foi feita por três semanas e o efeito foi avaliado através de um diário do sono, no qual os pais anotavam se a criança rangeu os dentes enquanto dormia antes (baseline) e durante a terapia (T1 a T3). Bruxismo do sono foi categorizado como presença ou ausência de ranger de dentes e a frequência variou de 0 a 7 (baseline), 0 a 5 (T1), 0 a 7 (T2) e 0 a 4 (T3) entre os pacientes. A intensidade foi comparada de acordo com os períodos pelo teste-T pareado (=0,05). Resultados: Foi observado que a frequência de relatos diminuiu significativamente de baseline a T3. Conclusão: Estes resultados sugerem que auriculoterapia pode ser uma terapia alternativa para o bruxismo do sono na infância, uma vez que demonstrou reduzir sua frequência neste estudo, embora os pacientes possam apresentar efeitos diferentes devido à variabilidade biológica.
