Electro-acupuncture (EA) can improve cerebral vasospasm and patient outcomes after aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH). Chinese researchers enrolled 60 aSAH patients who were given a basic treatment of nimodipine and randomised into two groups. The study group was treated with EA at Baihui DU-20 and the control group was given mock transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). Significantly better outcomes across a range of cerebral blood circulation markers continued to be noted in the EA-treated group up until the 3rd month after surgery compared with the control group.
