Objective: To investigate the effect of moxibustion combined with five-element music therapy on the postoperative pain relief of patients undergoing surgical operation for mixed hemorrhoid with damp-heat syndrome. Methods: Totally, 159 patients meeting the inclusion criteria were assigned to the control group, study group 1, and study group 2, with 53 cases in each group. All patients received routine care after surgical treatment, including acupoint application and Chinese herbal fumigation. In addition, patients in the study group 1 received moxibustion, and those in the study group 2 were given moxibustion combined with five-element music therapy. The degree of postoperative pain was evaluated using visual analog scale (VAS). Results: There was no significant difference in VAS score on pain during dressing changes among three groups (P > 0.05). After 3, 5, and 7 days of intervention, there was a significant difference in VAS score on pain at rest among three groups (P < 0.001), and VAS score in the study group 2 was lower than that in the study group 1 and the control group after 3 and 5 days of intervention, respectively (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Moxibustion combined with five-element music therapy is effective to relieve the postoperative pain of patients undergoing a surgical operation for mixed hemorrhoids with damp-heat syndrome.
