[Traditional Chinese medicine combined with Western medicine in the treatment of severe renal failure in patients with epidemic hemorrhagic fever].

This article reports the treatment of 23 cases (with the control group 20 cases) of severe renal failure in patients with epidemic hemorrhagic fever (EHF) by integrated traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine (TCM-WM), i.e., the renal protective decoction and modern medical treatment during the period of 1988-1989. The effects were as follows: (1) The curative rate was elevated and the morbidity was dropped (P less than 0.01-0.05). (2) Both the period of oliguria and albuminuria were shortened (P less than 0.01-0.05). (3) The severity of the complication, e.g., massive gastro-intestinal hemorrhage, etc., was much reduced (P less than 0.05). (4) The degree of azotemia was getting milder. And the renal function was much improved (P less than 0.05). The mode of action of the renal protective decoction is based on the point of view of the TCM in the treatment of infectious disease.
