Compared with the sham electroacupuncture (EA) group, the two EA groups (2 Hz and 20/100 Hz) showed significant advantages in various outcome measures at 12, 24, and 48 hours postoperatively.

EA groups received acupuncture at bilateral Zusanli (ST36) and Sanyinjiao (SP6). The frequency was set at 2 Hz continuous wave in the 2 Hz group and at 20/100 Hz (EA with alternating administration of 20 Hz and 100 Hz at 3sec intervals) in the 20/100 Hz group, both with an intensity of 0.1–5.0 mA, which was appropriate for patient tolerance.
