Abstract

Objective

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of Chinese medicine in the treatment of adenoid hypertrophy in children.

Method

Screening standard articles, extracting relevant data from meta-analysis, were analyzed by Revman5.1 software, by searching PubMed, Medline, VIP, Wan Fang and Chinese HowNet database 2006–2016 in traditional Chinese medicine treatment of children with adenoid literature.

Results

206 articles met the inclusion criteria, of which ten were selected and included in the meta-analysis, and there were 803 patients. The results showed that the remission rate of the Chinese medicine treatment group was better than that of the Western medicine group. The combined effect of the amount of OR 2.06, 95% Cl (1.45, 2.96) and the combined effect of the amount of the test Z = 4.12, P < 0.00001 showed the recurrence of the disease was lower in traditional Chinese medicine treatment group than the Western medicine group. The combined effect of the amount of OR 3.05, 95% Cl (2.11, 4.56) and the combined effect of the amount of the test Z = 5.86, P < 0.00001 showed the total effective rate is high in the traditional Chinese medicine treatment group than the Western medicine group. The difference between the combined effect of the amount of OR 2.79, 95% Cl (1.78, 5.03) and the combined effect of the amount of the test of Z = 4.54, P < 0.00001 was statistically significant, which showed the treatment effect of Chinese medicine group is obviously better than the Western medicine group.

Conclusion

The use of Chinese medicine for the treatment of children with adenoid hypertrophy has good clinical efficacy.
