Abstract: Objective To evaluate the effect and clinical value of auricular point sticking for the diagnosis and treatment of vasospasm and vagus reflex during radial artery puncture, including radial artery spasm(RAS) and coronary artery spasm(CAS). Methods A total of 480 patients were randomized into an observation group(224 cases) and a control group(256 cases). Percutaneous coronary intervention and usual care in perioperative period were used in the control group. Auricular point sticking was began to apply 12 h before percutaneous coronary intervention in the observation group at Jiaogan(AH6 a), Shenmen(TF4), Pizhixia(AT4), Neifenmi(CO18), Xin(CO15), Shen(CO10), Shenshangxian(TG2 p), 1 min a time every point, once every 2 h, 12 h before and after operation. The incidences of vasospasm and vagus reflex during piercing process were compared, and the usage ratios of vasoactive agent were recorded, including glyceryl trinitrate, dopamine and atropine injections. Results The incidence of angiospasm was 4.9%(11/224) in the observation group, which was lower than 13.3%(34/256) in the control group(P<0.01). The incidence of vagal reflex of the observation group was 7.1%(16/224), which was lower than 19.5%(50/256) of the control group(P<0.01). The usage ratios of glyceryl trinitrate, atropine and dopamine injections were 3.6%(8/224), 7.1%(16/224), 6.3%(14/224) respectively in the observation group, which were lower than 14.8%(38/256), 15.6%(40/256), 15.2%(39/256) in the control group(all P<0.01). Conclusion Auricular point sticking achieves effect for the diagnosis and treatment of vasospasm and vagus reflex during radial artery puncture.
