BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Preterm neonates are at risk for neurodevelopmental impairment, but reliable, bedside-available markers to monitor preterm brain growth during hospital stay are still lacking. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of corpus callosum-fastigium length as a new cranial sonography marker for monitoring of preterm brain growth. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this longitudinal prospective cohort study, cranial ultrasound was planned on the day of birth, days 1, 2, 3… CONTINUE READING
