The objective is to analyze the treatment used in relatively high quality randomized controlled trials to identify any similarities of therapeutic approaches and subsequently present recommendations for a standard acupuncture procedure for the treatment of peripheral facial paralysis (PFP). We searched Chinese and English language literatures through MEDLINE (January 1966 to October 2007), EMbase (January 1980 to October 2007), Chinese Biomedical Database (January 1978 to October 2007) and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (January 1979 to October 2007) for randomized controlled trials. With independent assessment by 2 observers, 33 of 386 originally identified articles were finally included. The extracted information from these articles was focused on the selection of meridians and acupoints, types of stimulation and duration of treatment. On the whole, when treating PFP, the best acupoints options are Dicang (ST4), Xiaguan (ST7), Jiache (ST6), Chengjiang (CV24), Yingxiang (LI20), Quanliao (SI18), Yifeng (TE17), Yangbai (GB14), Sibai (ST2), Fengchi (GB20), Shuigou (GV26), Yuyao (EX-HN4) and Hegu (LI4). Manual stimulation or electro-acupuncture combined with moxibustion is recommended. Moreover, the suggested duration of acupuncture treatment refers to once a day, 10 times for each course, 2 to 5 days as courses interval, and 20 to 40 treatments in total.

One of the most common questions at Baselworld 2013 was "what is up with the blue and brown color scheme of the new Rolex replica watches uk Daytona ?" It was a fair question. Rather than present a totally new Daytona as many people were expecting (something that rolex replica themselves found amusing) for the iconic model's 50th anniversary, Rolex released a solid platinum version of the existing Daytona replica watches sale with an "ice blue" dial matched with a brown ceramic bezel and chronograph subdials (rolex replica sale Daytona ref. 116506). What was that all about? Some people found the new colors to be audacious, and others felt it bodacious. Personally? I sort of secretly loved it. Rolex replica sale claimed that blue is a color they match with platinum. It also happens to be a color they match with 18k white gold as well as steel. But true enough, a lot of their platinum rolex replica watches (think Yacht-Master and Day-Date) have icy blue dials.
