ABSTRACT
Hypertension becomes a major public health problem due to its serious morbidity and mortality and serious cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and kidney complications. The complementary therapies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) play important roles in hypertension treatment. Acupuncture, as an important component in TCM, is frequently used in treatment hypertension. In this paper, we mined the data set of literature downloaded from SinoMed on hypertension focused on its treatment with acupuncture technology in TCM common use. The text mining results showed that Shuigou, Zhongshu, Burong, Zusanli, and Taichong were the top 5 acupoints, while Governor Meridian, Bladder Meridian of Foot-Taiyang and Stomach Meridian of Foot-Yangming were the top 3 meridian used for hypertension treatment. The combinations of acupoints were demonstrated in network, which were widely used in the clinical practices of acupuncture. The results provided good references for both clinical practice and medical research.
