Clinical Effect of Acupuncture-Moxibustion on Female Stress Urinary Incontinence and Acupuncture Sensation: A Meta-Analysis

Objective To evaluate the clinical efficacy of acupuncture and moxibustion on female stress urinary incontinence and acupuncture sensation on curative effect. Methods The randomized controlled trials (RCTs) regarding acupuncture-moxibustion on female stress urinary incontinence published before August 2020 were searched in databases of PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, Clinical Evidence, Chinese Journal Full-text Database (CNKI), VIP Database, etc. Methods According to the predesigned inclusion and exclusion criteria, two researchers screened literatures, extracted data and evaluated the risk of bias in the included studies. We used RevMan5.2 and RX64 4.0.2 for Meta analysis, and analyzed the clinical efficacy of acupuncture-moxibustion on female SUI, including urine leakage in an hour, the International Urinary Incontinence Questionnaire (ICI-Q-SF) score and cure rate. Results A total of 44 RCTs were included, including 3824 patients. The results of meta-analysis showed that compared with the control group, the acupuncture-moxibustion group obviously reduced urine leakage in an hour [MD=-2.73, 95%CI (-4.35, -1.11), P<0.01], decreased ICI-Q-SF score [MD=-1.68, 95%CI (-2.85, 1.26), P<0.01], improved cure rate [RR=1.28, 95%CI (1.20, 1.37), P<0.01], and the difference was statistically significant. The results of subgroup analysis showed that the acupuncture with acupuncture sensation in pudendum was more effective. Conclusion Acupuncture-moxibustion has obvious therapeutic effect on female stress urinary incontinence, and the treatment with acupuncture sensation in pudendum was more effective.
