(MedPage Today) -- What are the cardiovascular effects of beta-blockers before surgery?
A large Danish study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, has found that treatment with beta blockers was associated with a statistically significant increase in the rate of major adverse...
In a surprising new finding, heart attack patients treated with a substantially lower dosage of beta-blockers than used in earlier clinical trials showing their effectiveness survived at the same rate...
For the first time, researchers say they have demonstrated a benefit in overall survival among epithelial ovarian cancer patients receiving beta-blockers.
(HealthDay)—For cirrhotic patients with acute variceal bleeding (AVB), being on non-selective beta-blockers (NSBB) is not a negative prognostic factor for short-term survival, according to a study p...
Beta-blockers were associated with increased overall survival in women with epithelial ovarian cancer, according to a retrospective study.
I am surprised by a journal such as The BMJ, which promotes evidence based medicine, repeating the urban myth that β blockers are not safe in patients with asthma.1 Cardioselective β blockers... ...
A commonly prescribed drug for heart disease may do more good than previously thought. Researchers at York University have found that β-blockers may prevent further cell death following a heart attac...
We aimed at assessing changes in AV nodal properties during administration of the beta blockers metoprolol and carvedilol, and the calcium channel blockers diltiazem and verapamil from electrocardiogr...
Beta blockers are some of the most studied drugs in the pharmacopoeia. They are already widely used in medicine for treating hypertension, chronic heart failure, tachyarrhythmias, and tremor. Whilst t...
Since 2008, beta-blockers have become first-line treatment for infantile hemangiomas, the most common tumor of infancy. Their role is also being explored in the treatment of other childhood vascular t...
Recent growing evidence suggests that beta-blockers treatment could improve cardiovascular dynamics and possibly the outcome of patients admitted to intensive care with severe sepsis or septic shock.
A recent individual patient data meta-analysis has shown that beta-blockers reduce mortality in patients with heart failure and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF) who are in sinus rhyt...
