Alfuzosin 10 mg once daily in patients with a Double-J stent significantly decreases the bothersome urinary symptoms, besides decreasing significantly the pain associated with the stent.

The usefulness, effectiveness and tolerance of a long term treatment with alfuzosin in HPB patients was confirmed. Alfuzosin is considered a first choice treatment in patients with the clinical profile described.

This pilot study was undertaken to assess the efficacy and safety of the alpha(1)-blocker alfuzosin 10mg once daily (OD), the PDE-5 inhibitor sildenafil 25mg OD, and the combination of both on lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) suggestive of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and erectile dysfunction (ED).

We report an acute case of hepatitis following treatment with levofloxacin for pneumonia.
Consecutive men 50 years old or older presenting with acute urinary retention were prospectively recruited based on strict selection criteria. At presentation factors thought to precipitate acute urinary retention were treated, alpha-blocker therapy started and the patient brought back for a trial without catheter after 2 weeks. Prostate volume and intravesical prostatic protrusion were measured by standard transrectal ultrasonography.
There was some evidence to suggest that alpha blockers increase the success rates of trial without catheter, and the incidence of adverse effects was low. There was some evidence of a decreased incidence of acute urinary retention. The need for further surgery, cost effectiveness and recommended duration of alpha blocker treatment after successful trial without catheter remain unknown as these were not reported by any trial. There is a lack of internationally agreed outcome measures for what constitutes successful trial without catheter. This makes meta-analysis difficult. Large, well-designed controlled trials, which use the recommendations set out in the CONSORT statement, and include clinically important outcome measures, are required.
Major reasons for prescription change in patients taking α1-blockers were lack of efficacy and adverse events. In the silodosin group, the proportion of prescription change was significantly low compared with that in the other 3 groups.

We determined the binding affinity of tamsulosin, a selective α(1)-adrenoceptor antagonist, for human α(1)-adrenoceptor subtypes in comparison with those of other α(1)-adrenoceptor antagonists including silodosin, prazosin, 5-methylurapidil, terazosin, alfuzosin, nafopidil, urapidil and BMY7378. The association and dissociation kinetics of [(3)H]tamsulosin for recombinant human α(1)-adrenoceptor subtypes were compared with those of [(3)H]prazosin. Tamsulosin competitively inhibited [(3)H]prazosin binding to human α(1A)-, α(1B)- and α(1D)-adrenoceptors (pK(i) values were 10.38, 9.33, 9.85) indicating 11 and 3.4-fold higher affinities for human α(1A)-adrenoceptor than those for α(1B)- and α(1D)-adrenoceptors, respectively. The affinity of tamsulosin for the human α(1A)-adrenoceptor was, respectively, 5, 9.9, 38, 120, 280, 400, 1200 and 10000 fold higher than those of silodosin, prazosin, 5-methylurapidil, terazosin, alfuzosin, naftopidil, urapidil and BMY7378, respectively. [(3)H]Tamsulosin dissociated from the α(1A)-adrenoceptor slower than from the α(1B)- and α(1D)-adrenoceptors (α(1B)>α(1D)>α(1A)). Moreover, [(3)H]tamsulosin dissociated slower than [(3)H]prazosin from the α(1A)-adrenoceptor and faster from the α(1B)- and α(1D)-adrenoceptors. In conclusion, tamsulosin potently and selectively antagonized α(1A/1D)-adrenoceptor ligand binding, and slowly dissociated from the α(1A)-adrenoceptor subtype.

IFIS was first described in 2005 as a clinical triad observed during cataract surgery that includes fluttering and billowing of the iris stroma, propensity for iris prolapse, and constriction of the pupil. IFIS increases the risk of complications during cataract surgery. Numerous reports have linked IFIS to use of alpha(1)AR antagonists, most notably tamsulosin, which is prescribed for benign prostatic hyperplasia. Tamsulosin blocks prostatic alpha(1A)ARs but may also selectively block alpha(1A)ARs in the iris dilator muscle, preventing mydriasis during cataract surgery. Other alpha(1)AR antagonists, including terazosin, doxazosin, and alfuzosin, have also been linked to IFIS; however, their relationship to the syndrome is not as definitive. When ophthalmologists are aware of a patient's previous alpha(1)AR antagonist exposure, specific steps can be taken to reduce the risk of surgical complications. Corrective measures used during surgery have included iris expansion hooks, intracameral phenylephrine, and preoperative atropine.

Pertinent English-language articles were identified through a search of MEDLINE (1966-week 2, May 2006) using such search terms as 5alpha-reductase inhibitor, alpha-blocker, benign prostatic hyperplasia, dutasteride, efficacy, enlarged prostate, finasteride, and safety.
The alpha-blockers significantly decreased USS and BPS in comparison with placebo. Tamsulosin might be more effective than alfuzosin.
