Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta TTiunday, April 13, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGI HIRAID 9 Acupuncture operations termed superior WASHINGTON (A P) Acupuncture operations wit- nessed in Cliina have con- vinced President Nixon's per- sonal physician "lhat they have something very superior to our method of anesthesia." Dr. Walter H. Tkach said also "1 think it would be great" it some Chinese sur- geons came to the next Amer- ican Medical Association con- A HAIRY MATTER-Sen.

Such an idea al- ready has been proposed by Dr. Wesley Hall, AMA presi- dent. Tkach indicated in an inter- view Tuesday (hat he will do all he can to have the White House join in issuing an invi- tation to China to send sur- geons for a demonstration at the AMA's June session in San The president's physician disclosed also that while he was in Peking he requested that groups of American doc- tors be allowed to go to China and he given first-hand train- ing in acupuncture, at least in its use as an anesthetic. "But so far, I've had no re- he said. Tkach declared himself much impressed with the use of anesthetic acupuncture, the insertion into the body of long needles followed by applica- tion of an electric current t h r o u g li the needles. He added r LESS DANGER "It's something we had bel- ter learn about and make use of clinically as a possible whole new kind of anesthetic that would be free of the dan- gers of what we call 'systemic traumas' (adverse effects on bodily systems) from the anesthetics we presently use." The White House physician said also, in answer to ques- tions, that while he had no first-hand knowledge of Ihe effectiveness of acupuncture as a treatment for conditions such as deafness, he has "no reason to believe lhat they would want to falsify" claims they have made on such tilings. He said that on Feb. 21, he and Dr. W. Kenneth Kiland, a New York osteopatliic physi- cian, witnessed three opera- tions at Peking's Friendship Hospital. They involved surgical re- movals of: A cataract from the left eye of a man, C5; thyroid tumor from a woman, 21 i; and a cyst from the ovary of another woman, 37, who also had her fallopian tubes tied off. In each case, surgery was begun 20 minutes after the needles were inserted, and "Ihe patients were alert, we tnlkcd to them during the sur- gery, and all of them reported they experienced no pain." "All three operations were done within an hour, and the surgery itself was absolutely beautiful, almost artistic. The dissection was just beautiful."
