ABSTRACT

Objectives The objective of this study is to assess the effectiveness of electroacupuncture for patients with hip arthroplasty. Methods According to participants, intervention, comparison, outcome, study design, we searched for clinical studies that conducted electroacupuncture for patients with hip arthroplasty. Results Finally 11 randomized controlled trials were chosen for systemic review and meta-analysis. The frequently used evaluation tools were Incidence of postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD), heart rate, blood pressure. Almost studies showed electroacupuncture has effects for patients with hip arthroplasty. Through meta analysis, Electoacupuncture showed statistically significant effect of reducing the anesthetic dosage and incidence of postoperative psychonosema and adverse reactions in intra-operation period, reducing the incidence of POCD in peri-operation period, incidence of deep venous thrombosis in post-operation period. Conclusion 11 studies reported that electroacupuncture has significant effects on hip arthroplasty. But, many studies were assessed in a probable high risk of bias. And all studies published in one overseas country. So, it requires attention to comprehend this study. To make up for this limitaion, more well designed clinical research are needed.
