Yoon, Jeong, Kwon, Jo, and Kim: A Proposal for Standardization of Acupotomy Terms and Definition Among Korean researchers

Abstract

Objectives

The aim of this study was to investigate the use of Korean and English terminology of acupotomy therapy among Korean Researchers.

Methods

The search was conducted on eight medical journals (PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, OASIS, KISS, IMR, NDSL, RISS), Google Scholar and 8 Korean medine journals. The definitions of acupotomy therapy, Korean and English terminology were analyzed in the studies that met the criteria.

Results

A total of 60 studies were finally included in the analysis. In Korean terminology, Chim-Do was the most used with 37 studies, Do-Chim with 23 (including duplicates). In English termology, 46 studies were used acupotomy and 10 studies were used miniscalpel acupuncture.

Conclusions

As a result of analyzing the terminology use of acupotomy therapy studies in Korea, it was confirmed that Korean and English terminology are different according to the study. It will be necessary to discuss the standardization of terminology.
