  Abstract A prospective study on the symptomatic effect of traditional Chinese acupuncture treatment and transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TENS) of the tibial nerve in patients with interstitial cystitis is presented. There was no difference in voiding frequency, mean voided volume, maximal voided volume or visual analogue scale symptom scores before or after treatment with either TENS or acupuncture. Only one patient became improved both subjectively and objectively after acupuncture for a short period of time. Even though the present material involves a small group of patients, it seems that the two methods, as applied in this study, have a very limited effect in patients with interstitial cystitis
