Key PointsQuestionIs electroacupuncture involving the lumbosacral region effective in reducing urine leakage for women with stress urinary incontinence? FindingsIn this randomized clinical trial that included 504 women, the mean decrease in urine leakage, measured by the 1-hour pad test from baseline to week 6, was 9.9 g with electroacupuncture vs 2.6 g with sham electroacupuncture, a significant difference. MeaningAmong women with stress urinary incontinence, treatment with electroacupuncture involving the lumbosacral region, compared with sham electroacupuncture, resulted in less urine leakage after 6 weeks.
