  • Randomized
    Comparison of Intravenous Nitroglycerine and
    Magnesium Sulfate for Treatment of Preterm Labor


    El-Sayed
    YY, Riley ET, Holbrook RH Jr. et al (Stanford Univ,
    Calif)

    Obstet
    Gynecol 93: 79-83, 1999

     

    This
    randomized trial included 31 women who went into
    preterm labor before 35 weeks of gestation. The
    patients were randomized to receive IV magnesium
    sulfate (4-G bolus followed by 2-4 G/ h) or IV
    Nitroglycerine (as a 100 mcg bolus followed by 1- 10
    mcg/kg/min).

     

    The
    rate of successful tocolysis was 79 % with magnesium
    sulfate versus 38 % with nitroglycerine. Persistent
    hypotension was a common side effect in women
    receiving nitroglycerine.
