Abstract: Twelve patients with dilating cardiomyopathy complicated heart failure were divided randomly into auriculo-acupuncture group (n = 7) and controls (n = 5). Left cardiac function and plasma levels of PRA, ALD, EDLS, ANF were measured.

Results showed that CO, CI, ANF, EDLS, ALD were decreased in test group (e < 0.05), which indicated that auriculo-acupuncture plus needle-embedding in Heart acupoint could improve the left cardiac function in patients with dilating cardiomyopathy complicated heart failure and that the function of acupoints is distinctly different from that of non-point.
