In a retrospective study 35 patients with gonarthrotic pain were treated with acupuncture at the outpatient unit of the Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care in the University of Vienna. The subjective effectiveness of the treatment using a standard method on the knee demonstrated that patients reported an explicit improvement of their ailments. Therefore, we can unreservedly recommend this program, which was only augmented through additive "locus dolendi" treatment if indicated.
