A clinical study on acupuncture at point Neiguan (PC 6) was conducted on the basis of successful treatment of patients with angina pectoris and acute myocardial infarct. The effective rate (91.3%) was found to be far superior to isosorbide dinitrate and nifedipine (P < 0.01). The experimental studies in animal models demonstrated that electro-acupuncture could decrease the elevated ST segments in ECGs and reduce the infarct areas induced by coronary ligation.
