Late preterm infants are at an increased risk for short and long term morbidity (during the 1st year of life, their neurodevelopmental status may also be delayed as compared to infants bor...
Epipage 2 (epidemiologic study on small-for-gestational-age children) is a nationwide study implemented to improve our knowledge of the outcome of preterm children in France. This study wa...
The development of sucking behaviors in preterm infants is thought to reflect neurobehavioral maturation and organization. From a clinical perspective, the ability to feed depends upon a ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate if a cost and time effective intervention in a previous RCT for preterm infants and their parents can reduce the parents experience of concern a...
The purpose of this pilot study is to investigate in a randomised double-blind trial whether treatment with Sildenafil reduces duration of ventilatory support in preterm infants born at 28...
Optimal perinatal care of infants born less than 24 weeks gestation remains contentious due to uncertainty about the long-term neurodevelopment of resuscitated infants. Our aim was to determine the sh...
Most preterm infants born at 29-32 weeks gestation now avoid intubation in early life, and thus lack the usual conduit through which exogenous surfactant is given if needed.
Preterm birth causes long-term problems, even for infants born 1 or 2 weeks early. However, less is known about infants born after their due date and over a quarter of infants are born over 1 week l...
To examine the associations between Prechtl's general movements assessment (GMA), conducted from birth to term-equivalent age, and neurodevelopmental outcomes at 12 months corrected age, in infants b...
Preterm birth affects more than 10% of births worldwide, with over 80% of these individuals born moderately preterm; between 32-36 weeks' gestation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights...

Spontaneous tearing of the membranes surrounding the FETUS any time before the onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR. Preterm PROM is membrane rupture before 37 weeks of GESTATION.
A malformation of the nervous system caused by failure of the anterior neuropore to close. Infants are born with intact spinal cords, cerebellums, and brainstems, but lack formation of neural structures above this level. The skull is only partially formed but the eyes are usually normal. This condition may be associated with folate deficiency. Affected infants are only capable of primitive (brain stem) reflexes and usually do not survive for more than two weeks.
