Abstract/OtherAbstract:
CONCLUSION: This study confirms the role of prematurity, low birth weight and RDS in the pathogenesis of ROP, and emphasises the importance of prenatal steroid prophylaxis of RDS in very preterm infants. Furthermore, our data suggest that infants with oxygen dependency at 60 days or necrotising enterocolitis are at very high risk of developing ROP.
