|Electro-acupuncture neurostimulation for voiding dysfunction
–Urge-frequency syndrome, urge incontinence, stress incontinence and unobstructive urinary retention
by Prof.Siyou Wang Shanghai research insititte of acupuncture and meridian
|Date : TBC||Time: 10 am-4:30 pm||Full Price: £75.00|
- Urge-frequency syndrome
- Urge incontinence
- Stress incontinence
- Unobstructive urinary retention
Electroacupuncture neurostimulation (EANS) is valuable in treating the situations above. EANS is a combination of acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine and electrical neuromodulation from Western medicine. It includes “four sacral points” EANS (electrical pudendal nerve stimulation, EPNS) and “four abdominal points” EANS (electrical iliohypogastric nerve stimulation, EINS). Strong EPNS can simulate pelvic floor muscle training to treat stress incontinence. Moderate EPNS or EINS can induce a strong inhibition of the micturition reflex and detrusor hyper-reflexia to treat urge-frequency syndrome and urge incontinence. Moderate EPNS or EINS may also interfere with the increased afferent activity arising from the urethral sphincter, restore the sensation of bladder fullness and reduce the inhibition of the detrusor muscle contraction to treat unobstructive urinary retention.
About Prof. Siyou Wang:
Wang Siyou graduated in combined traditional Chinese and Western medicine from Shanghai College of traditional Chinese medicine in 1986 and obtained a master’s degree. He received a Sasakawa medical scholarship and studied at Kitasato University medical school in Japan in 1996-1997. He is now a professor and the Director of Neurobiological Research at Shanghai Research Institute of Acupuncture and Meridian. Furthermore, he is also the Director of the Third-Level Brain Neurobiology Laboratory of National TCM Administration.
Wang Siyou has a wealth of experience in clinical and experimental studies of acupuncture treatment for chronic voiding dysfunction. He invented electro-acupuncture neuro-stimulation therapy of combined traditional Chinese and Western medicine. Electrical pudendal nerve stimulation for the treatment of stress incontinence and urgency-frequency syndrome has been accepted by the healthcare professionals all over the world. He delivered a speech about electrical pudendal nerve stimulation for stress incontinence at the 39th annual meeting of the international continence society in 2009. The research results on stress incontinence were published in BJU Int. and Neurourol Urodynam, and website UroToday. The research results on urgency-frequency syndrome , published in Int Urogynecol J. “Clinical and experimental studies of kidney-reinforcing and yang-warming acupuncture and moxibustion for female urethral syndrome”, was awarded 2nd science and technology prize of national TCM administration in 1996. “The mechanism of action and clinical efficacy of electrical pudendal nerve stimulation in treating female stress incontinence” was awarded Shanghai 2nd science and technology prize of combined traditional Chinese and Western medicine in 2012. “Mechanism and clinical application of electroacupuncture neurostimulation treatment for urethral syndrome” was awarded Shanghai 3rd prize of medical science and technology in 2004.
