Colectomy influences the radial pulse parameters of traditional Chinese medicine pulse diagnosis in patients with colorectal cancer
ConclusionsTo our best knowledge, this preliminary study is the first attempt to investigate the influence of colectomy on the radial pulse parameters in patients with colorectal cancer. The major findings from this study include a significant reduction of the radial AI at the right Chy pulse, and a significant difference in the SE at the right Chy and Chun pulses after colectomy. It is also the first study using modern scientific tools to validate the TCM theory that the right Chy pulse corresponds to the changes in the large intestine through surgical removal of the visceral organs.
