  • Purpose: We intended to observe relation between general symptom and the number of uterine myoma. Methods: We surveyed 948 women from 35 to 45 years old who had received Korean oriental medical questionnaires about general symptom pattern and pelvic ultrasonography at Kyung-Hee university medical center from May, 2007 to October, 2008. After we divided women into three groups (Mono-uterine myoma, Bi-uterine myoma & uterine myoma above 3) by ultrasonography result, we compared general symptom pattern according to the number of uterine myoma.

  • Prevalence of female uterine myoma was determined using ultrasound diagnosis instrument, and correlation between health-related factors and uterine myoma was analyzed to investigate concrete factors for production of uterine myoma. Subjects in uterine myoma group and control group were asked to answer the questionnaire survey. The results were determined that prevalence of uterine mayma was 29.7%, and 40~49 aged group showed the highest level of uterine myoma by 41.4%. (p<0.05). The analysis showed that there were significant correlations between uterine myoma and collected variables such as age, marital status, occupational activity level, satisfaction level of life, weight, obesity, delivery history, breast feeding, abortion, and contraceptive experience (p<0.05).

  • Objectives: We intended to identify differences of general symptoms related to existence & nonexistence of uterine myoma. Methods: We surveyed 948 women from 35 to 45 years old who had received Korean oriental medical questionnaires about general symptom patterns and abdominal & pelvic ultrasonography at Kyung-Hee University medical center from May 2007 to October 2008.

In relation to evacuation pattern, stool frequency showed statistically significant difference between the normal and uterine myoma groups. In relation to psychologic pattern, difference in oppression in the chest & palpitation showed statistical significance between the groups. In relation to the other patterns, differences in throat discomfort & hypertonicity of nape neck showed statistical significance between the normal and uterine myoma groups (p<0.05). Conclusions: The result showed that prevalence of uterine myoma should be considered in respect to digestion pattern, evacuation pattern, and psychologic pattern. We need further study after increasing the size of the uterine myoma group and improvement of general symptom questionnaires.

The most common symptoms include abdominal pain or discomfort, low abdominal pressure sensation, hypermenorrhea and urinary symptoms. The treatment of uterine myoma is just observation, operation and hormone replacement therapy. We treated 6 outpatients who has uterine myoma and visited Kyungwon InCheon Oriental Hospital with Herb-medication and acupuncture. So we have gotten good result from them. After 6 outpatients had taken Guichulpazing-tang(歸朮破?湯), the symptoms were improved and the size of the uterine myoma was reduced significantly, It proves that oriental medical treatment is effective on the patients with uterine myoma, but continuous studies are needed.

  • The purpose of this study is to examine various Oriental Medical approaches to uterine myoma treatments which have been previously proposed, and find out an appropriate method with the verification of its clinical acceptance. The treatment with GGT(Gami-gwichulikyeong-tang) and JGD (Jagungdan) has been applied to uterine myoma patients visiting Sangdang Oriental medical clinic. After the treatment, 81 cases showing significant results are selected and analyzed in terms of patients' age, social environment, previous history of treatment, condition of uterine myoma, chief complaint, and the comparison between menstrual phases before the treatment and those after it. As for the size change, no-change is dominant. For the change chief complaint take a favorable turn is better after the treatment. Color of menstruation, pathologic blood drainage, hypermenorrhea or menorrhagia. dysmentorrhea show high percentage of improvement. The results above show GGT and JGD are effective treatments for uterine myoma patients. These two are also similar to the typical prescription of Jingga, which is Gwichulpajing-tang. Thus GGT and JGD are effective to the treatment for Jingga and Jingga is one of the most valid Oriental Medical approaches to uterine myoma.

  • Uterine myoma is a benign tumor of smooth muscle in the uterine wall. Recently, in Oriental medicine, concerns about uterine myoma patients have increased. We analyzed the medical records for 944 patients, including 257 uterine myoma patients, who visited Dongeui University Oriental Medical Center from May 2001 to June 2006. We investigated the DSOM (Diagnosis System of Oriental Medicine) symptom scores which effect uterine myoma patients using stepwise logistic regression model. Logistic regression analysis indicated as follows: In the control group composed of 558 outpatients, 18 items of DSOM were associated with myoma, 9 positively and 9 negatively, and the results showed that the correct rate was equal to 81.1%, sensitivity 72.8%, and specificity 84.9%. In 129 clinical trials data, 33 items of DSOM were associated with myoma, 18 positively and 15 negatively, and the results showed that the correct rate was equal to 85.8%, sensitivity 84.8%, and specificity 87.6%. In 687 outpatient and clinical trials data, 18 items of DSOM were associated with myoma, 10 positively and 8 negatively, and the results showed that the correct rate was equal to 82.8%, sensitivity 70.8%, and specificity 87.3%.

  • Objectives : Uterine myoma is the most common pelvic benign tumor and may cause abnormal menstrual pattern. The growth of uterine myoma depends on hormones. The 7-zone-diagnostic system (CP-6000A) is a measuring system using skin resistance variability (SRV). The machine shows organic energy and was reported by the gynecologic department to detect functional abnormality of hypothalamus-hypophysis-ovarian axis (H-P-O). Our study was to investigate the SRV of women with uterine myoma by the 7-zone diagnostic system. Methods: Two groups were selected from those who took the CP-6000A test in the College of Korean Medicine Hospital of Sangji University from March 2003 to September 2006. They were divided into normal control (n=40) and uterine myoma groups (n=40). Electrodermal activity of the two groups was compared. Results : The mean value of electrodermal activity of the uterine myoma group was lower than that of thenormal group in all areas on first and second measurement. Especially, the mean value of the patient group was significantly lower than that of the normal group and fell below normal range in the 1, 2, and 3 areas on first and second measurement. Conclusions : The results suggest that women with uterine myoma may have organic energy deficiency and functional abnormality of the H-P-O axis. Further studies to determine the feasibility of this 7 -zone diagnostic system as a reliable diagnostic tool are needed.
