Objective: To observe the clinical effects of Zhu Lian’s type Ⅰ excitation needling technique for postpartum urinary retention.
Methods: A total of 60 cases with postpartum urinary retention were recruited and divided randomly into an observation
group and a control group, 30 cases in each group. The control group was treated with routine acupuncture, and stimulated
with sparse and dense wave of electric acupuncture for 15 min after arrival of needling sensation, and then the needles
were taken out. The observation group was treated with Zhu Lian’s type Ⅰ excitation needling technique, by inserting the
needles with the quick inserting method, swift and temporary lifting and thrusting technique for shallow insertion for 5
times, by an in-and-out technique, without retaining the needles.
Results: The total effective rate was 96.7% in the observation group and 83.3% in the control group. The difference in the
total effective rate between the two groups was statistically significant (P<0.05). After the treatment, the first urination time
was shorter in the observation group than that in the control group, with a statistical significance (P<0.01). After the
treatment, the volume of residual urine after the first urination was less in the observation group than that in the control
Conclusion: Zhu Lian’s type Ⅰ excitation needling technique can effectively promote the voluntary urination and bladder
emptying in patients with postpartum urinary retention, and it takes effect faster.

Postpartum urinary retention refers to urinary
disturbance in lying-in women presenting 5-8 h after
childbirth, mainly manifested by unsmooth urination or
no voluntary urination after childbirth
. The lying-in
women suffering from postpartum urinary retention
may further develop distended bladder, affecting the
contractions of the uterus. Moreover, over distension of
the bladder is in risk of rupture
and is easy to cause

postpartum hemorrhage in severe cases
postpartum urinary retention could induce infection of
the urinary system after childbirth. Those factors are
not beneficial to postpartum rehabilitation of the
lying-in women. Therefore, early detection and
intervention are essential to postpartum urinary
retention. This study was designed to observe the
influence of Zhu Lian’s type I excitation needling
technique and electric acupuncture on postpartum
urinary retention and compare the therapeutic effects.
Now, the report is given as follows.
