2. Hydralazine vs nifedipine for acute hypertensive emergency in pregnancy: a randomized controlled trial (Abstract)

Hydralazine vs nifedipine for acute hypertensive emergency in pregnancy: a randomized controlled trial There is a paucity of good quality evidence regarding the best therapeutic option for acute control of blood pressure during acute hypertensive emergency of pregnancy.We sought to compare the efficacy of intravenously administered hydralazine and oral nifedipine for acute blood pressure control in acute hypertensive emergency of pregnancy.In this double-blind, randomized, controlled trial (...) , pregnant women (≥24 weeks period of gestation) with sustained increase in systolic blood pressure of ≥160 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure of ≥110 mm Hg were randomized to receive intravenous hydralazine injection in doses of 5, 10, 10, and 10 mg and a placebo tablet or oral nifedipine (10 mg tablet up to 4 doses) and intravenous saline injection every 20 minutes until the target blood pressure of 150 mm Hg systolic and ≤100 mm Hg diastolic was achieved.

Nifedipine compared to magnesium sulfate for treating preterm labor: A randomized clinical trial. Preterm labor is the leading cause of infant morbidity and mortality so it may be necessary to administer tocolytics for treatment of it.The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of magnesium sulfate and nifedipine in the management of preterm labor.100 women with documented preterm labor were randomly assigned to receive magnesium sulfate (n=50) and nifedipine (n=50 (...) ) as tocolytic therapy. Before tocolysis, patient did not receive any sedation. After tocolysis, if patient continued to have contractions, they received other tocolytic agents. The main outcome variables examined were days gain in utero, success rate and side effects of tocolysis.Both drugs were equally effective in prevention of labor and delaying delivery >7 days, 56% vs. 64% in the nifedipine and magnesium sulfate groups, and the days gain in utero was no statistically different in two groups. 6

[Management of ureteric colic with ketorolac and nifedipin vs. ketorolac and tamsulosin in the emergency room]. Ureteric colic is the most common symptom of lithiasis. It is caused by the presence of stones accumulated in the renal papillae. These stones often migrate down the ureter, causing a ureteric colic, characterized by a severe pain in the lumbar region. The aim of this study was to compare the use of ketorolac and nifedipine vs. ketorolac and tamsulosin for the medical treatment (...) of pain caused by stones in the lower ureter.Longitudinal study of 150 patients of 21-years or older with stones in the lower third of the ureter. 50% received ketorolac and nifedipine and the other 50%, ketorolac and tamsulosin. The Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) was used for the assessment of pain at admission and 4 and 12 hours after the treatment was administered. We used descriptive and inferential statistics (Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon, chi-squared and Poisson regression).Mean age was 38.17 years

Progesterone and nifedipine for maintenance tocolysis after arrested preterm labor: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trial. No treatment is recommended for routine maintenance tocolysis after an arrested preterm birth. Our present study aimed to evaluate the effect of progesterone and nifedipine as maintenance tocolysis therapy after an arrested preterm birth.For relevant studies, we systematically searched the literature in databases of PubMed, Embase (...) , and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) in the Cochrane Library. Only randomized controlled trials were included.Nine trials were included in our review. Nifedipine and progesterone were used for maintenance tocolysis. Compared to placebo treatment or no treatment, maintenance tocolysis with progesterone could significantly prolong the delivery gestational weeks [standard mean difference (SMD) 1.64; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.21, 2.07; p < 0.00001], reduce the proportion

Labetalol Versus Nifedipine as Antihypertensive Treatment for Chronic Hypertension in Pregnancy: A Randomized Controlled Trial. Data from randomized controlled trials to guide antihypertensive agent choice for chronic hypertension in pregnancy are limited; this study aimed to compare labetalol and nifedipine, additionally assessing the impact of ethnicity on treatment efficacy. Pregnant women with chronic hypertension (12+0-27+6 weeks' gestation) were enrolled at 4 UK centers (August 2014 (...) to October 2015). Open-label first-line antihypertensive treatment was randomly assigned: labetalol- (200-1800 mg/d) or nifedipine-modified release (20-80 mg/d). Analysis included 112 women (98%) who completed the study (labetalol n=55, nifedipine n=57). Maximum blood pressure after randomization was 161/101 mm Hg with labetalol versus 163/105 mm Hg with nifedipine (mean difference systolic: 1.2 mm Hg [-4.9 to 7.2 mm Hg], diastolic: 3.3 mm Hg [-0.6 to 7.3 mm Hg]).

18. Comparison of the efficacy of nifedipine and hydralazine in hypertensive crisis in pregnancy. (Abstract)

Comparison of the efficacy of nifedipine and hydralazine in hypertensive crisis in pregnancy. Intravenous hydralazine is a commonly administered arteriolar vasodilator that is effective for hypertensive emergencies associated with pregnancy. Oral nifedipine is an alternative in management of these patients. In this study the efficacy of nifedipine and hydralazine in pregnancy was compared in a group of Iranian patients. Fifty hypertensive pregnant women were enrolled in the study. A randomized (...) clinical trial was performed, in which patients in two groups received intravenus hydralazine or oral nifedipine to achieve target blood pressure reduction. The primary outcomes measured were the time and doses required for desired blood pressure achievement. Secondary measures included urinary output and maternal and neonatal side effects. The time required for reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure was shorter for oral nifedipine group (24.0 ± 10.0 min) than intravenus Hydralazine group
