Position dependent changes of cerebral blood flow velocities in premature infants.

CONCLUSION: in premature newborns, position dependent changes of cerebral blood flow velocity develop with maturation and are most pronounced in the vertebrobasilar system. These changes are possibly due to compression of the vertebral artery by neck movement and suggest an individual risk of brainstem perfusion deficits that may be aggravated with age and head rotation in a prone position.
