2. Effect of Tamsulosin on Passage of Symptomatic Ureteral Stones: A Randomized Clinical Trial

Effect of Tamsulosin on Passage of Symptomatic Ureteral Stones: A Randomized Clinical Trial Urinary stone disease is a common presentation in the emergency department, and α-adrenergic receptor blockers, such as tamsulosin, are commonly used to facilitate stone passage.To determine if tamsulosin promotes the passage of urinary stones within 28 days among emergency department patients.We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial from 2008 to 2009 (first phase) and then from (...) 2012 to 2016 (second phase). Participants were followed for 90 days. The first phase was conducted at a single US emergency department; the second phase was conducted at 6 US emergency departments. Adult patients were eligible to participate if they presented with a symptomatic urinary stone in the ureter less than 9 mm in diameter, as demonstrated on computed tomography.Participants were randomized to treatment with either tamsulosin, 0.4 mg, or matching placebo daily for 28 days.The primary

Secondary end points included time to stone expulsion, use of analgesics, and incidence of adverse events.Among 3450 patients randomized

6. Effect of Tamsulosin on Stone Passage for Ureteral Stones: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis (Full text)

Effect of Tamsulosin on Stone Passage for Ureteral Stones: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis Tamsulosin is recommended for patients receiving a diagnosis of a ureteral stone less than 10 mm who do not require immediate urologic intervention. Because of conflicting results from recent meta-analyses and large randomized controlled trials, the efficacy of tamsulosin is unclear. We perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the effect of tamsulosin on stone passage in patients (...) receiving a diagnosis of ureteral stone.MEDLINE, EMBASE, and CENTRAL databases were searched without language restriction through November 2015 for studies assessing the efficacy of tamsulosin and using a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial design. Meta-analysis was conducted with a random-effects model and subgroup analyses were conducted to determine sources of heterogeneity.Eight randomized controlled trials (N=1,384) contained sufficient information for inclusion.

Distal Ureteric Stones and Tamsulosin: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Randomized, Multicenter Trial We assess the efficacy and safety of tamsulosin compared with placebo as medical expulsive therapy in patients with distal ureteric stones less than or equal to 10 mm in diameter.This was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial of adult participants with calculus on computed tomography (CT). Patients were allocated to 0.4 mg of tamsulosin or placebo daily for 28 (...) days. The primary outcomes were stone expulsion on CT at 28 days and time to stone expulsion.There were 403 patients randomized, 81.4% were men, and the median age was 46 years. The median stone size was 4.0 mm in the tamsulosin group and 3.7 mm in the placebo group. Of 316 patients who received CT at 28 days, stone passage occurred in 140 of 161 (87.0%) in the tamsulosin group and 127 of 155 (81.9%) with placebo, a difference of 5.0% (95% confidence interval -3.0% to 13.0%).
