OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of 2 different α-1 blockers and 1 phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor as medical expulsive therapy for distal ureteric calculi. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 2011 and December 2012, 285 patients presenting with distal ureteric stones of size 5-10 mm were on consent randomly assigned to 1 of 3 outpatient treatment arms: tamsulosin (group A), silodosin (group B), and tadalafil (group C). Therapy was given for a maximum of 4 weeks. Stone expulsion rate, time to… CONTINUE READING
