03/01/2000 - "In addition to their clinical benefits, diuretics are the most cost-effective treatment of any single drug group currently available for the treatment of patients with congestive heart failure."
01/01/2014 - "Diuretics are clearly beneficial in the treatment of acute decompensated heart failure. "
01/01/2009 - "In conclusion, doubling the dose of diuretics in outpatients with symptomatic congestive heart failure caused a significant loss of weight and a significant improvement in symptoms and 6-minute walk distance but did not change LV systolic and diastolic function."
06/01/2002 - "Heart failure was treated successfully with digitalis and diuretics. "
01/01/2013 - "A large trial is ongoing to determine if a strategy of early UF, initiated before renal function is worsened by other therapies, is superior to IV diuretics in reducing 90-day heart-failure-related hospitalizations in patients with pulmonary and systemic congestion. "
|2.||Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
03/01/1995 - "Reducing the diuretic dose, as is now recommended for treating hypertension, seems to lessen adverse effects, and despite all the adverse reactions just mentioned, it has been proven that diuretics are beneficial in many diseases."
04/01/2005 - "Several large well-designed clinical trials have shown that the use of diuretics is beneficial in patients with hypertension. "
01/01/1994 - "In the Systolic Hypertension in the Elderly Study, which primarily used diuretics, there was a significant reduction in LVH at 5 years.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)"
10/01/1978 - "This study demonstrates that diuretics effectively reduce blood pressure in patients with hypertension secondary to renal disease without producing severe volume depletion or clinically significant reduction in renal function. "
11/11/2002 - "While control of high BP improved in the 1990s, about half the participants with hypertension had uncontrolled BP, primarily mild to moderate elevations in systolic BP. Low-dose diuretics and beta-blockers--the preferred agents since 1993 according to the recommendations of the Joint National Committee on the Detection, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Pressure--remained underused. "
09/01/1991 - "2. It is possible that elevations in dietary K+ retard stroke development by inducing natriuresis and facilitating the clearance of Na+, and that diuretics associated with natriuresis might also be capable of retarding stroke development in spSHR. "
08/01/2005 - "We extracted summary statistics regarding CHD and stroke from 28 outcome trials that compared either ACEIs or CCBs with diuretics, beta-blockers, or placebo for a total of 179,122 patients, 9509 incident cases of CHD, and 5971 cases of stroke. "
06/01/1999 - "(1) In trials involving hypertensive non diabetic patients under 65, some diuretics and betablockers have prevented strokes, without conferring protection from coronary events or death. "
07/01/1996 - "These trials in elderly patients demonstrated that low-dose diuretics were effective not only in preventing stroke but also in greatly reducing coronary-related events. "
01/01/1994 - "In hypertensive patients treated with diuretics, long-term outcome trials have shown significant benefit in terms of reduction in stroke and coronary events. "
02/01/2015 - "Most patients (77.6%) completely cleared the ascites without diuretics, but many achieved this beyond 2 years. "
03/01/1998 - "Improvement of ascites after TIPS were associated with a significant reduction in the dose of diuretics. "
01/01/2006 - "Through a better understanding of the pathophysiology of ascites formation and the mechanism of action of diuretics, improved extracellular fluid balance can be achieved in these patients."
03/01/1995 - "Clinical improvement in ascites control was noted in 74%, and the mean dose of diuretics was decreased by more than 50%. "
04/01/1999 - "Albumin is effective in improving the rate of response and preventing recurrence of ascites in cirrhotic patients with ascites receiving diuretics. "
01/01/1983 - "After clearance of the edema with diuretic therapy, total blood volume (TBV) was not significantly decreased; therefore, in the supine position the significant (2p less than 0.001) decrease of right atrial pressure, stroke volume, cardiac output, and cardiopulmonary blood volume (CBV) by the diuretics was due to an improvement in venous compliance which resulted in peripheral redistribution of CBV since the ratio CBV/TBV was decreased during diuretic therapy (2p less than 0.001). "
09/01/1962 - "Some further observations on the rapid quantitative method for determining efficacy of diuretics in bed-patients with edema."
01/01/2011 - "In 3 of 4 children remission of optic disc edema was observed after 8 weeks of treatment with diuretics - median global RNFL was 138 microm. "
11/01/1981 - "Both diuretics proved equally effective in reducing edema. "
08/15/1964 - "Its main therapeutic value, used either alone or in combination with other diuretics, is in the longterm management of chronic edema, especially in certain patients refractory to the currently used diuretics.No"
