Summary of "Successful treatment of sick sinus syndrome with Traditional Chinese Medicine."

Background Sick sinus syndrome comprises a variety of conditions involving sinus node dysfunction and commonly affects elderly persons. When patients have contraindications or refuse to receive pacemaker therapy, the alternative treatment could be considered. Case Description A 36-year-old male of sick sinus syndrome successfully treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was reported. This patient refused permanent pacemaker implantation for personal reasons. Traditional Chinese Medicine, Sumailing Koufuye, was employed. After 1-day administration, the patients recovered significantly, both in manifestations and Holter Holter monitor. Conclusion TCM showed therapeutic effects for early stage of sick sinus syndrome and could be promising alternative treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition caused by dysfunctions related to the SINOATRIAL NODE including impulse generation (CARDIAC SINUS ARREST) and impulse conduction (SINOATRIAL EXIT BLOCK).
