Abstract

Objective: To explore the clinical effects of acupuncture and repeated transcranial magnetic stimulation in patients with mild vascular dementia. Method: From May 2020 to May 2021, 40 patients with mild vascular dementia in Harbin Fourth Hospital (our hospital) were divided into the experimental group (20 cases, using conventional drugs + acupuncture + repeated transcranial magnetic stimulation) and the control group (20 cases, for example, the application of conventional medication). The improvement of cognitive function score, sleep quality score, quality of life score, and cerebral hemodynamics before and after treatment were compared between the two groups. Result: Before treatment, the difference in cognitive function score, sleep quality score, quality of life score, and cerebral hemodynamic index between the two groups of patients did not form, that is, p>0.05; after treatment, the experimental group’s cognitive function score was (19.45±2.47) points , Sleep quality score (12.18±2.09), quality of life score (33.29±4.08), left cerebral blood flow velocity (65.76±3.32) cm/s, right cerebral blood flow velocity (64.32±3.25) cm/s, more For the control group, P<0.05. Conclusion: In the clinical treatment of patients with mild vascular dementia, based on conventional drugs, combined with acupuncture and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, the patients’ cognitive function can be improved, and the quality of sleep and quality of life can be improved. Comprehensive clinical promotion.
