Objective: This study was undertaken to evaluate the clinical efficacy of Western medicine combined with Chinese medicine for pelvic inflammatory disease (damp-heat and stasis type). Methods: Seventy-four patients who were diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease (damp-heat and stasis type) by our hospital during July 2021 to July 2022 were randomized into two groups: the participants in the control group received conventional Western medicine treatment, and the participants in the study group received Western medicine combined with Chinese medicine. Results: After treatment, the total effectiveness of the control group (72.98%) was significantly lower than that of the study group (94.59%), (P < 0.05); the whole blood viscosity high cut, whole blood viscosity low cut, fibrinogen and plasma viscosity of the control group were all lower than those of the study group (P < 0.05); the levels of CRP, IL-6, and TNF-? in the control group were higher and IL-2 levels in the control group were lower than those in the study group (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Western medicine combined with Chinese medicine is more effective in curing damp-heat and stasis-type pelvic inflammatory disease by improving the blood rheological indexes and lowering the level of inflammatory factors.
