Wenxinkeli combined with warfarin can significantly reduce the incidence of stroke
The Chinese herb extract Wenxin Keli is made by a mixture of several different herbs. A study published in early 2012 investigated claims that the Chinese herb Wenxin Keli was effective in suppressing AFib. It now holds the title of the first state-sanctioned traditional Chinese medicine-based antiarrhythmic drug.
Objective: To study Wenxinkeli combined with warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation stroke treatment effect .
The clinical data of patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation in elderly in our hospital in September 2007 -2012 in September enrolled a total of 150 patients were randomly divided into two groups , observed a group of 75 patients , 45 males , female the 30 cases ; 75 cases of the control group , 40 males and 35 females . Conventional treatment group received warfarin 2.5- mg ( combined to determine INR ), daily oral drug treatment on the basis of the control group , as the starting dose , Wenxinkeli group plus the Wenxinkeli 9g , 3 times a day orally. Control the situation , the incidence of stroke , and bleeding were observed atrial fibrillation symptoms .
Of two groups before and after treatment compared the number of atrial fibrillation/ the lasting time of AF/ the total clinical efficiency , and to carry out comparison between the two groups. and the results are shown :
1. Regarding the number of atrial fibrillation , the two groups before and after treatment decreased very significantly P <0.01 . efficacy of the wenxin keli group than the warfarin group P <0.05.
2. Regarding the lasting time of AF , the two groups before and after treatment decreased very significantly P <0.01 . efficacy of the wenxin keli group than the warfarin group P <0.05.
3. Regarding the total clinical efficiency , the wenxin keli group was better than the warfarin group P <0.05 .
Wenxinkeli combined with warfarin can significantly reduce the incidence of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation , and reduce the incidence of bleeding and other complications.
