[Clinico-morphologic aspects of the active skin points of the upper extremities and their importance in reflexotherapy]
Using an acoustic apparatus designed by G. N. Novinsky the authors studied the morphological structure of the skin in the area of active points on the arm. The authors also used micro-macroscopic preparation after V. P. Vorobiev with the subsequent histological investigation of the sites where these points were distributed. There was a considerable amount of friable connective tissue in the area of the active points which was distributed in the form of meshwork in some areas. The data obtained make it possible to specify the topography of the distribution of active points which is of great practical value for improving the efficacy of acupuncture.
