Prevalence and incidence of inguinal hernia in a representative sample of low birthweight survivors were determined by tracing children at 3 years of age. Prevalence was examined in relation to perinatal factors recorded in hospital case notes, using a logistic regression model to allow for confounding variables. Of the 1074 two year survivors, 995 (93%)(More)
The prevalence of cutaneous haemangiomas in a representative population of low birthweight infants was determined by tracing and assessing survivors of pre-school age. Data from hospital case-notes and follow-up assessments were used to investigate whether prevalence of haemangiomas was related to perinatal factors and childhood morbidity. Eleven point one(More)
Rates of survival and of neurological impairment in a geographically defined population of low birthweight infants born during 1979-1981 were determined by tracing infants and assessing survivors at pre-school age. Comparison with data from similar studies relating to earlier years shows that the proportion of low birthweight infants who survive with no(More)
Proportions of infants of birthweight 501-2000 g born in 1979-1981 who had defects recognisable at birth were ascertained by examining hospital records and tracing survivors. Twenty-seven per cent of 230 stillbirths, 8.4% of 1411 livebirths, 4.5% of 1117 neonatal survivors and 3.6% of 1074 two-year survivors had a congenital defect, birth prevalence rising(More)
The palliation afforded by balloon atrial septostomy to 124 infants with transposition of the great arteries was assessed in terms of survival to 6 months of age without the need for further intervention. Prediction of success or failure in relation to palliation was significantly affected by the presence of associated ventricular septal defect, left(More)
Twenty children with spastic diplegia were identified by clinical assessment among a representative cohort of 1048 survivors with a birthweight of 2000g or less. Data from hospital case-records were used to investigate which perinatal conditions might differentiate infants with diplegia from other low-birthweight survivors. Even allowing for a strong(More)
