Methods: Literature searches were made through Pubmed, Koreanstudies Information Service System(KISS) and Korean Oriental medical Society database. Data were extracted according to pre-defined criteria. The methodological quality was assessed using Modified Jadad scale. Results: 8 studies were met the condition among the 43 searched studies. They were designed as double blind or observer blind and randomized controlled trial, and were analyzed statistically. 6 studies out of the 8 reported that acupuncture could prevent PONV effectively. Conclusion: The hypothesis that acustimulation may be effective for the prevention of Gynecological surgery induced PONV is supported by the data in recent literatures.
