In pregnant women subjected to spinal anesthesia for a Cesarean section, episodes of nausea and vomiting are common both during and following surgery. Acupuncture for the prophylaxis and treatment of these complications has been gaining in popularity due to its low cost, simplicity, absence of side effects and confirmed efficacy. This study investigated the efficacy of stimulating the P6 acupoint in conjunction with the use of dexamethasone as prophylaxis for nausea and vomiting in pregnant women submitted to spinal anesthesia for a Cesarean section. The patients (n = 100) were randomly distributed into two groups. In the first group (n = 50), a site located one centimeter laterally from P6 was stimulated. This is not a true acupuncture point (sham acupuncture). In the second group (n = 50), P6 was stimulated. In both groups, 4 mg of dexamethasone were administered intravenously. A questionnaire was used to obtain information on the occurrence of nausea and vomiting during surgery and in the first 12 hours postpartum. The chi-square test and Fisher’s exact test were used to assess differences between the groups. Age and physical status were similar in both groups. The incidence of nausea during surgery was 32% (n = 16) in the control group and 22% (n = 11) in the P6 group (p > 0.05). In the first 12 hours following surgery, nausea occurred in 16% of the women in the control group (n = 6) and in 4% in the P6 group (n = 4) (p = 0.045). The incidence of vomiting in the control group was 12% (n = 6) during surgery and 10% (n = 5) in the postoperative period compared to 8% (n = 4) and 4% (n = 2), respectively, in the P6 group (p > 0.05). Although these differences were not statistically significant with the exception of the incidence of nausea in the first 12 hours postpartum, a reduction occurred in the incidence of all the outcomes evaluated in the P6 group.

Abstract: objective: the intracellular gram-negative bacterium chlamydia pneumoniae has been associated with atherosclerosis. the presence of chlamydia pneumoniae has been investigated in fragments of the arterial wall with a technique for dna identification. methods: arterial fragments obtained from vascular surgical procedures in 58 patients were analyzed. from these patients, 39 were males and the mean age was 65±6 years. the polymerase chain reaction was used to identify the bacterial dna with a pair of primers that codify the major outer membrane protein (momp) of chlamydia pneumoniae. the amplified product was visualized by electrophoresis in the 2% agarose gel stained with ethidium bromide, and it was considered positive when migrating in the band of molecular weight of the positive controls. results: seven (12%) out of the 58 patients showed positive results for chlamydia pneumoniae. conclusion: dna from chlamydia pneumoniae was identified in the arterial wall of a substantial number of patients with atherosclerosis. this association, which has already been described in other countries, corroborates the evidence favoring a role played by chlamydia pneumoniae in atherogenesis.
