ABSTRACT

The clinical effects were compared and analyzed of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) ‘Ling Gui Long Mu soup’ combined with the conventional Western medications in treating child typhoid complicated by myocarditis. From July, 2010 to May, 2014, 54 children suffering from typhoid complicated by myocarditis were enrolled in the present study. The patients were divided into the observation and control groups (n=27 cases per group) according to the random number table. Patients in the observation group were treated with basic Western medicine combined with TCM ‘Ling Gui Long Mu soup’ while patients in the control group were treated only with Western medicine. We analyzed the final curative effects in the two groups. The total effective rate in the observation group was significantly higher than that of the control group and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). The improvement rate of the syndrome in the TCM observation group was significantly higher than that in the control group and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Although the C-reactive protein (CRP) and creatinine kinase-MB (CK-MB) levels in the two groups were decreased following the treatment, CRP and CK-MB levels in the observation group were further reduced, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). In conclusion, for child typhoid complicated by myocarditis, TCM ‘Ling Gui Long Mu soup’ significantly improved the clinical efficiency of the treatment and improved the syndrome. Therefore, ‘Ling Gui Long Mu soup’ is useful in clinical practice.
