This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The main objective of this review is to examine whether acupoint stimulation in patients undergoing open or laparoscopic gastrointestinal surgery can reduce the time of post-operative ileus and promote recovery.
This review will also consider the impact of intervention on the restoration of bowel function for passing flatus and the amount of faeces.
