Abstract

It is a long histroy that use of acupuncture treatment coronary heart disease (CHD) which belongs to Xiong Bi in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In this paper, application of acupuncture on CHD treatment was analyzed by text mining. The study was focused on the fields of meridian, acupoints, acupuncture method and constructed the associated network of them. By analyzing the network, we found that Pericardium Meridian of Hand-Jueyin was the frequently used meridian combined with other meridians and Neiguan was the frequently used acupoint combined with other acupoints for acupuncture treatment on CHD. Electroacupuncture was the common used method and often applied in the meridian of Hand-Jueyin and Hand-Shaoyin. The combinations of meridians, acupoints and methods were demonstrated in network. Results could be helpful for both clinical practice and medical research.
