  Abstract Objective: To assess the clinical effect of electroacupuncture for trcating prostatic hyperplasia. Methods: Sixty patients with prostatic hyperplasia were randomized into a treatment group and a control group, 30 in each. The treatment group was treated by electroacupuncture, and the control was prescribed with orally taken Jing Zhu Qian Lie Long Bi Tong Capsule. After treatment, the two groups were compared with each other in terms of treatment result, international prostate symptom score (I-PSS), quality of life index (QLI), maximum flow rate (Qmax), and residual urine volume (RUV). Results: The total effective rate was 96.7% in the treatment group versus 70.0% in the control, and the difference was significant (P<0.05). Both groups had marked improvement in I-PSS, QLI score, Qmax and RUV (P<0.05). Conclusion: By improving I-PSS, QLI, Qmax and RUV, electroacupuncture is an effective way for treating prostatic hyperplasia.
