Objective: To study the clinical effect of Prunella vulgaris decoction in the treatment of infectious bone defects, and analyze the application methods in clinical treatment. Methods: 100 patients with infectious bone defects admitted to our hospital from February 2020 to February 2021 were selected and averagely divided into an experimental group and a control group. The control group was treated with conventional drugs and methods for infectious bone defects, while the experimental group was given Prunella vulgaris decoction along with conventional drugs. The cure rate of inflammation, equal length rate of lower limbs, rate of knee joint stiffness and satisfaction rate of patients in both groups were recorded. Results: In the control group, the cure rate of inflammation was 88%, the equal length rate of lower limbs was 92%, the rate of knee joint stiffness was 32%, and the satisfaction rate of patients was 82%. The figures in the experimental group were 100%, 96%, 10%, and 98%, respectively. Conclusion: Prunella vulgaris decoction is effective in treating infectious bone defects, effectively relieving patients’ symptoms and helping them recover. Therefore, the application of Prunella vulgaris decoction in treating infectious bone defects should be strengthened to improve the therapeutic efficiency and promote the better recovery of patients.
