2.Granulation at throat

Name: Lv Fanglin
Date: 2002-05-02

The 15-year-old girl pesented with a 3-month history of a ingravescence of hoarseness.Three months before she came,she took an operation because of her congenital heart disease under general anaesthesia in Shengyang General Hospital of Army. After the operation her voice became more and more hoarse .Two days before she came she was told that there was a granulation growing beside the root of right vocal cord by the doctor of the ENT department of that hospital and was suggested another operation. Her parents were afraid that the operation would damage the vocal cords and the operation couldn't prevent the relapse as well,so they brought her to take Tuina. Wheh she came she could hardly let out her voice. Her tongue was red and her pulse was powerful,so it must be the injure of bronchial insertion which led to the obstruction of qi and blood in the local place and phlegm and heat mixed there,which led to the inflammation of her vocal cord.So we selected points to clear heat and phlegm: Pushing-reinforcing Kidney Water, Push-clearing Tianheshui, Pushing-clearing Banmen, Pushing Sihengwen, Kneading Zhongjin, Kneading Xiaotianxin, Kneading Xiaohengwen, Push-clearing Lung Metal, Push-withdrawing Xialiufu, Kneading Errenshangma,etc.After the first time of tuina, her hoarseness was almost gone. After half a month the photo of laryngoscope showed the granulation had reduced a bit. Another 2 weeks later,it reduced a lot. But the doctor of 201 Hospital of Liberation Army insisted the change of the size of the granulation was caused by the difference of angles. After another 3 weeks, photo by laryngoscope showed that not only the granulation has disappeared but also a pit appeared there.The director insisted she must have taken a laser treatment,and after the child's mother promised that it's true that tuina had healed it,he said it's maybe a blood dunk. Soon,another 3 weeks passed, she took a laryngoscope examination again. A lady ENT told her that the focus had already been stabilized.
