'Clinical study on treatment of oviduct obstruction by integrative traditional Chinese and Western medicine'

 

A study was carried out in Guangzhou, China, to find an effective treatment for tubal obstruction.  The results of 120 women divided into three treatment groups were compared.  One group received a combination of Western medical treatment and Chinese herbal medicine, one group received Chinese herbal medicine only and another group received Western medical treatment only.  After treatment, the fallopian tube patency rate 86.7% and the pregnancy rate 85.0% in the TCM/ WM group, 66.7% and 63.3% in the TCM group and 53.3% and 50% in the WM group respectively.   The effectiveness in the combination group was significant.  The authors conclude that the combination of western and Chinese medicine is the most effective method in treating tubal obstruction.
