[Clinical study of effect of yinji capsule on left ventricular systolic function of angina pectoris patients with blood stasis syndrome]
Longhua Hospital, Shanghai University of TCM.
OBJECTIVE: To explore the Yinji Capsule (YJC) in improving the left ventricular systolic function of angina pectoris patients with Blood Stasis Syndrome. METHODS: The systolic function of left ventricle (LV) in cardiac cycle of 28 angina pectoris patients with Blood Stasis Syndrome was examined with three-dimensional echocardiograph (3-DE) before and after treatment with YJC. RESULTS: The total symptomatic effective rate was 85.7%. The changes of LV systolic function were those: left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) increased from 45.0 +/- 4.9% to 48.2 +/- 3.5% (P < 0.05); EF on early stage and late stage increased from 22.6 +/- 2.1%, 8.3 +/- 1.2% to 28.1 +/- 3.0% and 10.3 +/- 0.9% respectively (P < 0.01, P < 0.05), myocardial region with segment systole (SS) < 5% decreased significantly (P < 0.01). CONCLUSION: YJC could improve LV systolic function on early stage and late stage in cardiac cycles, and mainly improve the systolic function of the region with low SS of LV.
