Are alpha-blockers effective therapy for ureteral stones? Bottom line: Yes. Alpha-blockers improve the expulsion rate of ureteral calculi by 50% and reduce expulsion time by more than 3 days compared with no treatment or other treatments such as analgesics and anti-inflammatories (SOR: A, meta-analysis of RCTs and consistent RCTs).
