The efficacy and safety of acupuncture assisted anesthesia (AAA) for postoperative pain of thoracoscopy: A protocol for systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.


Enhanced recovery after surgery suggests the use of multimodal analgesia to optimize the perioperative pain management scheme. At present, studies have shown that the application of acupuncture combined anesthesia in thoracoscopy has achieved good curative effect. However, there is no relevant systematic evaluation. Our study is the first meta-analysis of the effectiveness and safety of acupuncture combined anesthesia in pain management after thoracoscopy, in order to provide strong evidence for clinical support.
