Summary of "Small for gestational age birth may increase airflow limitation in bronchopulmonary dysplasia."

To determine significant indices for assessing the pulmonary function of infants according to bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) severity and to evaluate whether small for gestational age (SGA) could affect pulmonary function in BPD.

Small for gestational age very preterm infants present a higher risk of developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

Several studies assessed the influence of a low birth weight on bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), but not all could find a significant association. Our aim was to assess the association between low bi...

Analysis of maximal expiratory flow-volume curves in adult survivors of preterm birth.

Adult survivors of very preterm (≤32 weeks gestational age)birth without (PRE) and with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) have variable degrees of airflow obstruction at rest. Assessment of the shape...

Bubbly and cystic appearance on chest radiograph of extremely preterm infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia is associated with wheezing disorder.

Bubbly/cystic appearance on chest X-ray is an important factor in cases of severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia. We aimed to determine whether chest X-ray-based bronchopulmonary dysplasia classifications...

Compared to CPAP extubation to non-invasive ventilation is associated with higher risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in extremely low birth weight infants.

While non-invasive ventilation (NIV) has been associated with improved extubation rates, its impact on bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) remains unclear.

Immune System Regulation Affected by a Murine Experimental Model of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: Genomic and Epigenetic Findings.

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a common cause of abrupted lung development after preterm birth. BPD may lead to increased rehospitalization, more severe and frequent respiratory infections, and l...

Montelukast in Very Low Birthweight Infants

The purpose of this study is to determine the pharmacokinetics (PK) of montelukast (Singulair) in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants at risk for developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia (th...

Inhaled Corticosteroids for Treatment of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

While many short-term morbidities associated with extreme prematurity have declined over the last two decades, the incidence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) has increased to a rate of ...

Respiratory Management of Preterm Infants and Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

This observational study evaluates the impact of respiratory management modifications implemented in our institution on the intubation rates and the death or Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BP...

Mesenchymal Stem Cells for The Treatment of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in Infants

The clinical study with UMC119-01 is designed to investigate the safety in patients with bronchopulmonary dysplasia ("BPD"). This will be a dose escalation, open-label, single-center study...

Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: From Neonatal Chronic Lung Disease to Early Onset Adult COPD

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An infant having a birth weight lower than expected for its gestational age.

A condition of fetal overgrowth leading to a large-for-gestational-age FETUS. It is defined as BIRTH WEIGHT greater than 4,000 grams or above the 90th percentile for population and sex-specific growth curves. It is commonly seen in GESTATIONAL DIABETES; PROLONGED PREGNANCY; and pregnancies complicated by pre-existing diabetes mellitus.

A term used to describe pregnancies that exceed the upper limit of a normal gestational period. In humans, a prolonged pregnancy is defined as one that extends beyond 42 weeks (294 days) after the first day of the last menstrual period (MENSTRUATION), or birth with gestational age of 41 weeks or more.

An infant whose weight at birth is less than 1000 grams (2.2 lbs), regardless of gestational age.

An infant whose weight at birth is less than 1500 grams (3.3 lbs), regardless of gestational age.
