目的 基于有关百会穴治疗椎动脉型颈椎病症的临床文献，为运用针灸百会治疗椎动脉型颈椎病症提供相关依据。方法 选用CNKI，WF，VIP，CBM，Embase，Medline，Cochrane Library，Web of Science8个数据库进行检索其中的RCT文献，主题输入“针刺”或“灸”等源并含“椎动脉型颈椎病”“百会”进行源检索，对主题词进行有关针灸百会治疗椎动脉型颈椎病的临床文献的检索。对文献进行回顾，并进行总结和分析。结果 在54篇文献中，我们发现百会穴的针灸治疗椎动脉型颈椎病的文献均为中文文献，其数目有逐年递增的趋势；治疗证型主要为气血亏虚型、痰浊中阻型及肝肾亏虚型；使用R软件运用关联规则中百会、风池穴组、百会-风池-颈夹脊、百会-大椎-风池-颈夹脊为最常使用组穴；单独穴位进行治疗的临床文献较少，多用于针刺、针灸及其他复合疗法等治疗；从疗效上来讲均取得不错的效果。结论 针灸百会治疗椎动脉型颈椎病近年来发展较好；其证型和配穴均较稳定，对穴所属经脉主要以督脉及膀胱经为主且较多位于头部；对于其他治疗手段可予以鼓励，特别可与药物结合进行鼓励，这更有利于临床疗效，且对未来进一步研究针灸百会治疗椎动脉型颈椎病（CSA）的临床效应和机制提供了新思路。
Objective To summarize and analyze the clinical literature of acupuncture and moxibustion for the treatment of vertebral arterial cervical spondylosis.Methods The literature in CNKI, WF, VIP, CBM, Embase, Medline, Cochrane Library,Web of Science, acupuncture or moxibustion , and other sources, including CSA of vertebral artery type of cervical spondylopathy on baihui which all are RCT, were searched.
