Comparative efficacy of acupuncture-related interventions for tubal obstructive infertility - Evidence Based Acupuncture


Acupuncture-related therapies outperformed control interventions in improving pregnancy rates, tubal patency rates, and overall effectiveness while demonstrating a lower incidence of adverse events.

The network meta-analysis included 1580 articles, with 23 meeting the criteria. These studies involved 2355 patients and explored 13 intervention measures.

EA+CHM was identified as the most effective for pregnancy rates, MOX for tubal patency rates, and MOX+AP for overall effectiveness. The safety profile of acupuncture-related interventions was acceptable. These findings offer novel treatment strategies for acupuncture-related interventions, providing practitioners with evidence-based guidance.
