This study was done with a purpose to determine the effectiveness of Letrozole-Electroacupuncture adjuvant therapy in reducing the Resistance Index and Pulsatility Indices in women with PCOS.
This analytical observational study with a cohort approach included women aged 20-45 years based on age, BMI, and period of infertility aspects as inclusion criteria. The sample consisted of 30 people who were divided into 2 groups, namely group 1 with letrozole therapy, while group 2 with additional electroacupuncture therapy and then carried out pre- and post-intervention examinations on day 19 and 21. The dependent variables were the Resistance Index value and the Pulsaitility Index value. The independent variables were Letrozole and Electroacupuncture therapies. The Resistance and Pulsatility Indices were measured using USG transabdominal Color Doppler Voluson P6. The data were analyzed using the Mann Whitney test.
The Pulsatility Index for group 1 on day 21 was higher than group 2, and it was statistically significant.
The study concluded through its findings that Letrozole-EA therapy reduces the Resistance and Pulsatility Indices.
