めまい患者における東洋医学的気血水の検討 Japanese Traditional Medical Diagnosis Using Ki-Ketsu-Sui in Vertiginous Patients
Japanese traditional medical diagnosis using Ki-Ketsu-Sui in vertiginous patients was examined. Among all parameters, the highest positive rate was demonstrated for Suitai. Kiutsu and Kikyo also showed high positive rates, suggesting that psychogenic factors play important roles in the occurrence of vertigo. Multiple parameters were shown to be positive in young and elderly patients, suggesting that multiple factors may contribute to the occurrence of vertigo. A high positive rate was present for Suitai but not for Oketsu with peripheral vestibular disorder. On the other hand, vertebrobasilar insufficiency and idiopathic vertigo demonstrated a high positivity rate for Suitai, Oketsu, and Ketsukyo, suggesting the contribution of vascular disorders to the occurrence of vertigo.
