According to a study reported in the Neural Regeneration Research (Vol. 8, No. 18, 2013), patients with post-stroke detrusor overactivity from the Department of Neurology, Fourth Hospital of Harbin Medical University, China, received electroacupuncture at points Baliao [including bilateral Shangliao (BL31), bilateral Ciliao (BL32), bilateral Zhongliao (BL33), and bilateral Xialiao (BL34)] and Huiyang (BL35). Electroacupuncture significantly improved cystometric capacity and bladder compliance, decreased detrusor leak point pressure, which is proposed as an effective treatment for post-stroke detrusor overactivity.
