Objective To compare the efficacy of tocolysis with specific regimens of nifedipine and ritodrine. Maternal side effects and neonatal outcome also were evaluated. 
Effectiveness of nifedipine versus atosiban for tocolysis in preterm labour: a meta‐analysis with an indirect comparison of randomised trials
TLDR
The effectiveness of nifedipine compared with atosiban for tocolysis in preterm labour is compared to be explored to find out if the former is more effective than the latter. Expand
Calcium channel blockers for inhibiting preterm labour; a systematic review of the evidence and a protocol for administration of nifedipine
TLDR
The effects on maternal, fetal and neonatal outcomes of nifedipine and other calcium channel blockers administered as a tocolytic agent to women in preterm labour are assessed. Expand
The short‐term effect of nifedipine tocolysis on placental, fetal cerebral and atrioventricular Doppler waveforms
TLDR
To evaluate the effect of nifedipine on placental and fetal middle cerebral and atrioventricular Doppler waveforms, a high-performance liquid chromatography–answers method is used. Expand
An update on the controversies of tocolytic therapy for the prevention of preterm birth
TLDR
It is necessary to select patients suitable for vaginal or laparoscopic mesh placement on the basis of prior history and once they provide informed consent for surgery, the results of which will be used for diagnosis and treatment. Expand
Comparative study of nitroglycerin dermal patch versus nifedipine in the management of preterm labour
TLDR
American academy of Pediatrics and ACOG document preterm labor between 20-37 weeks of gestation if uterine contractions occurring at a frequency of 4 in 20 minutes or 8 in 60 minute plus progressive change in cervix, cervical effacement 80% of greater and cervical dilation > 1 cm. Expand
Nifedipine versus ritodrine for suppression of preterm labor. Comparison of their efficacy and secondary effects.
TLDR
Ritodrine provided more effective tocolysis within the first 48 h than nifedipine at the doses used in this study, although with a significantly higher rate of side effects. Expand
Nifedipine Versus Ritodrine for Suppression of Preterm Labor and Analysis of Side Effects
TLDR
Oral Nifedipine is cheaper and effective alternative which has fewer and less serious side effects as compared to I.V. Ritodrine for suppression of the preterm labor. Expand
Withdrawal of nifedipine capsules: jeopardising the treatment of acute severe hypertension in pregnancy?
Short‐acting oral nifedipine has been withdrawn from the Australian market because of reports of its adverse effects after long‐term treatment in non‐pregnant patients with heart disease. This willExpand
Optimising maternal‐fetal outcomes in preterm labour: a decision analysis
TLDR
Three strategies are compared, using decision analytic techniques, maternal and fetal risk and benefits of three strategies for the management of preterm labour after 32 weeks: empiric tocolysis, no to colysis or amniocentesis for fetal maturity testing. Expand
A prospective, randomized trial of nifedipine vs. ritodrine in threatened preterm labor
TLDR
Nifedipine is a valid and well‐tolerated alternative among the tocolytic drugs, and apparently does not significantly alter fetal vascular blood flow. Expand

The use of a calcium antagonist (nifedipine) to suppress preterm labour
TLDR
Nifedipine was found to be significantly more effective than ritodrine or withholding therapy, and was almost devoid of side‐effects in suppressing premature uterine activity. Expand
Nifedipine versus ritodrine for suppressing preterm labor.
TLDR
Preliminary data suggest that nifedipine is a safe, effective and well-tolerated tocolytic agent, and may prove to be a suitable alternative to ritodrine hydrochloride, especially for women in whom beta-sympathomimetics are contraindicated. Expand

A comparison of tocolysis with nifedipine or ritodrine: analysis of efficacy and maternal, fetal, and neonatal outcome.
TLDR
It is concluded that nifedipine may have a role in the treatment of preterm labor but suggest further careful evaluation of this agent before it is considered for routine clinical use. Expand
Tocolytic and hemodynamic effects of nifedipine in the ewe.
TLDR
Intravenous nifedipine was found to be a potent tocolytic agent that completely inhibited uterine activity even in advanced labor when administered at infusion rates that resulted in only mild hemodynamic effects. Expand
Nifedipine pharmacokinetics during preterm labor tocolysis.
TLDR
It is concluded that both sublingual and oral nifedipine treatment results in variable but usually measurable maternal plasma concentrations and that placental transfer of nifingipine occurs. Expand
Effects of nifedipine on oxytocin- and prostaglandin F2 alpha -induced activity in the postpartum uterus.
TLDR
Intrauterine pressure was registered by the microtransducer technique in 19 patients and nifedipine administered orally is a potent inhibitor of drug-induced myometrial activity in the early postpartum period. Expand
Effect of Nicardipine HC1 on Prematurely Induced Uterine Activity in the Pregnant Rabbit
TLDR
It is concluded that nicardipine HC1 is a potent tocolytic agent that deserves further evaluation for possible clinical use. Expand
Cardiovascular and metabolic effects associated with nifedipine and ritodrine tocolysis.
TLDR
It appears that the use of nifedipine for preterm labor management is associated with hemodilutional changes but not the adverse cardiovascular or metabolic effects often associated with ritodrine tocolysis. Expand
