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: £125.00

The Lecture

  • Urge-frequency syndrome
  • Urge incontinence
  • Stress incontinence
  • Unobstructive urinary retention

About Lecture

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.
