[Comparative observation on therapeutic effects of electroacupuncture and manual acupuncture on female urethral syndrome].

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate objectively clinical effects of different needling methods on urethral syndrome.

METHODS: Eighty-nine cases of female urethral syndrome were randomly divided into an electroacupuncture group and a hand-acupuncture group. The scores were evaluated with I-PSS of International Urine-Controlled Association and life quality before and after treatment, and their therapeutic effects were compared.

RESULTS: The abnormal symptoms of urination alliviated in the both groups (P < 0.05); the short-term cured rate was 51.8% in the electroacupuncture group, which was higher than 17.1% in the hand-acupuncture group (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION: The therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture on female urethral syndrome is better than that of the hand-acupuncture.
