OBJECTIVES: To assess the independent effect of perinatal factors on the risk for bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants. STUDY DESIGN: Population based observational study. Data was prospectively collected by the Israel Neonatal Network. Multivariable analyses identified independent risk factors for BPD. RESULTS: Of 12139 infants surviving to a post menstrual age of 36 weeks, 1,663 (13.7%) developed BPD. BPD was independently associated with young maternal age (OR 1.53), maternal hypertensive disorders (OR 1.28), antepartum hemorrhage (OR 1.26), male gender (OR 1.41), non-Jewish ethnicity (OR 1.23), birth defects (OR 1.94), small for gestational age (OR 2.65) and delivery room resuscitation (OR 1.86). Stratified analysis by gestational age groups showed that post-delivery resuscitation had a more pronounced effect with increasing maturity. CONCLUSIONS: Perinatal factors and pregnancy complications were independently associated with development of BPD in VLBW infants. Most risk factors identified were consistent within gestational age groups.
