Metabolic Syndrome in Childhood: Association With Birth Weight, Maternal Obesity, and Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
Analysis of insulin resistance at 11 years in a multivariate logistic regression revealed that childhood obesity and the combination of LGA status and maternal GDM were associated with insulin resistance, with odds ratios of 4.3 and 4.4 (95% CI: 1.5–74.4), respectively. Expand
Regional brain volume abnormalities and long-term cognitive outcome in preterm infants.
TLDR
The data indicate that preterm birth is associated with regionally specific, long-term reductions in brain volume and that morphological abnormalities are, in turn, associated with poorer cognitive outcome. Expand
Neurodevelopmental and growth impairment among extremely low-birth-weight infants with neonatal infection.
TLDR
It is suggested that neonatal infections among ELBW infants are associated with poor neurodevelopmental and growth outcomes in early childhood and novel interventions to improve these outcomes can be explored. Expand
Growth in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Influences Neurodevelopmental and Growth Outcomes of Extremely Low Birth Weight Infants
TLDR
It is suggested that growth velocity during an ELBW infant’s NICU hospitalization exerts a significant, and possibly independent, effect on neurodevelopmental and growth outcomes at 18 to 22 months’ corrected age. Expand
Validation of the National Institutes of Health Consensus Definition of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia
TLDR
As the severity of BPD identified by the consensus definition worsened, the incidence of those outcomes and of selected adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes increased in the infants who were seen at follow-up, and the consensus BPD definition was identified more accurately than other definitions. Expand
First-Week Protein and Energy Intakes Are Associated With 18-Month Developmental Outcomes in Extremely Low Birth Weight Infants
TLDR
Increased first-week protein and energy intakes are associated with higher Mental Development Index scores and lower likelihood of length growth restrictions at 18 months in extremely low birth weight infants. Expand
Year 2007 Position Statement: Principles and Guidelines for Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Programs
TLDR
The Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH) endorses early detection of and intervention for infants with hearing loss and EHDI systems should guarantee seamless transitions for infants and their families through this process. Expand
Identification of Neonatal Hearing Impairment: Evaluation of Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emission, Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emission, and Auditory Brain Stem Response Test Performance
TLDR
All three neonatal hearing screening tests resulted in low refer rates, especially if referrals for follow-up were made only for the cases in which stopping criteria were not met in both ears. Expand
Neurodevelopmental and functional outcomes of extremely low birth weight infants in the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network, 1993-1994.
TLDR
ELBW infants are at significant risk of neurologic abnormalities, developmental delays, and functional delays at 18 to 22 months' corrected age, and factors significantly associated with decreased morbidity included increased birth weight, female gender, higher maternal education, and white race. Expand
Identification of Neonatal Hearing Impairment: Ear-Canal Measurements of Acoustic Admittance and Reflectance in Neonates
TLDR
The use of a YR test criterion to assess the quality of probe seal may help control the false-positive rate in evoked otoacoustic emission testing and may have potential for use in neonatal screening tests for hearing loss. Expand
