|Electro-acupuncture neurostimulation for voiding dysfunction

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 the situations above. EANS is a combination of acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine and electrical neuromodulation in 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 Porf. 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 got Sasakawa medical scholarship and studied at Kitasato University medical school in Japan 1996-1997.

Wang Siyou has worked for a long time on 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 accepted by the international medical circles. A speech about electrical pudendal nerve stimulation for stress incontinence was delivered at 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.
