Over the last 10 years a regain of interest for this neurological condition lead to a number of precise analyses of the deficits found in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between placenta-mediated pregnancy complications and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in very preterm infants. METHODS National prospective population-based cohort study including 2697 singletons born before 32 weeks' gestation. The main outcome measure was moderate to severe BPD. Three groups of(More)
OBJECTIVE To synthesize the available evidence regarding the incidence and several risk factors of preterm birth. To describe neonatal outcomes according to gestational age and to the context of delivery. MATERIALS AND METHODS Consultation of the Medline database. RESULTS In 2010, 11% of live births (15 million babies) occurred before 37 completed weeks(More)
Every year, approximately 15 million babies are born preterm worldwide (before 37 completed weeks of gestation), putting the global preterm birth rate at 11%; they are about 60,000 in France. About 85% of these births are moderate (32-33 weeks) to late preterm babies (34-36 weeks), 10% are very preterm babies (28-31 weeks) and 5% are extremely preterm(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the impact of latency duration on survival, survival without severe morbidity, and early-onset sepsis in infants born after preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) at 24-32 weeks' gestation. STUDY DESIGN This study was based on the prospective national population-based Etude Épidémiologique sur les Petits Ȃges Gestationnels 2(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the measures to prevent spontaneous preterm birth (excluding preterm premature rupture of membranes)and its consequences. MATERIALS AND METHODS The PubMed database, the Cochrane Library and the recommendations from the French and foreign obstetrical societies or colleges have been consulted. RESULTS In France, premature birth(More)
In France, 60,000 neonates are born preterm every year (7.4%), half of them after the spontaneous onset of labor. Among preventable risk factors of spontaneous prematurity, only cessation of smoking is associated with decreased prematurity (level of evidence [LE]1). It is therefore recommended (Grade A). Routine screening and treatment of vaginal(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between histologic chorioamnionitis (HCA) and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in very preterm infants, both in a general population and for those born after spontaneous preterm labor and after preterm premature rupture of membranes (pPROM). STUDY DESIGN This study included 2513 live born singletons delivered at(More)
