Subversion of the aforementioned mechanical, expulsive
and antimicrobial protein/peptide-mediated epithelial innate defences necessitates the mobilisation of circulating neutrophils and production of types I and III antiviral interferons by the pattern recognition receptors of the innate immune system.
Thirty-two patients received expulsive
medical therapy for two weeks (nifedipine 30 mg/day for upper and middle ureteral stones, tamsulosin 0.
treatment of distal ureteral stones using tamsulosin: A single-center experience.
Factors to consider in future studies include measuring the uterine pressure to identify whether the expulsive
effort is greater in women who wear mouth guards during the second stage of labor, she commented.
Ineffective cough: Cough function may be weak or ineffective in diseases and conditions where: 1) diaphragm weakness or spinal deformity diminish ability to inhale; 2) poor coordination of the bulbar muscle impairs closure of the glottis and the ability to build up intrapleural pressure; 3) poor coordination of the expiratory muscles compromises expulsive
force and mucus shearing.
1,6] To our knowledge, there are no comparative papers that investigate the effectiveness of different expulsive
medical therapies (EMT).
D-blocker naftopidil as medical expulsive
therapy for distal ureteral stones.
Labor has become protracted; epidural anesthesia has arrested the labor; and/or the mother is exhausted, her contractions are weak, and the vacuum is going to be used to compensate for the reduced expulsive
therapy (MET) administered with calcium channel blockers (nifedipine) or alpha blockers increase the chance of spontaneous passage in over 80% of cases for ureteral stones.
Cost-effectiveness of medical expulsive

Lastly, medical expulsive

therapy has recently emerged as an alternative treatment method for initial management of small distal ureteal stones.
For medical expulsive
treatment 90% of the doctors were using alpha-blockers among which tamsulosin was the most commonly preferred one.
