Efficacy and safety evaluation of acupuncture therapy for patients with salpingitis in IVF-ET
Medicine (Baltimore), Jan 15, 2021; DOI: 10.1097/MD.0000000000024015

We will only include randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of acupuncture for salpingitis in IVF-ET, regardless of reviews, protocols, animal experiments, case studies, non-therapeutic clinical studies.

All participants were clinically diagnosed with salpingitis in IVF-ET, without restrictions on the TCM classification of salpingitis in IVF-ET, such as age, sex, disease duration, and race. But some special patients will not be included even if they meet the clinical criteria for salpingitis in IVF-ET, such as pregnant or nursing women, people with severe heart, liver or lung disease, those with the history of major trauma surgery.

Observation group: Acupuncture is used alone or in combination with other treatment methods. The types of Acupuncture of TCM and methods of combination will be ignored.

Control group: Other treatments (including any other non- Chinese medicine treatment) or combined with fake acupuncture point.

The outcome is based on the 2015 American Center for Disease Control and prevention on the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic inflammatory diseases and obstetrics and Obstetrics and Gynecology (8th Edition, People's Medical Publishing House of China), patients diagnosed with salpingitis may lead to hydrosalpinx, pus accumulation, adhesion, blockage and infertility, which should also be included in the category of salpingitis. The improvement of clinical symptoms (such as fever, abdominal tenderness or rebound pain, uterine and accessory tenderness, cervical lifting pain, etc) should be improved within 3 days after the treatment;[26,27] the pregnancy rate after treatment should be more than 65%.[28] The total effectiveness rate is a percentage, which is the ratio of the sum of the number of mitigators and effective people to the total number.
