  • PURPOSE To determine the incidence of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) over a 2-year period before and after a change in the practice of oxygen supplementation. DESIGN Nonrandomized, retrospective study. PARTICIPANTS All infants in a single Level III neonatal intensive care unit between the years of 2005 and 2007. METHODS A prospective database recorded the gestational age, birth weight, stage and zone of ROP, threshold disease, treatment, final outcome and date of examination, maternal… CONTINUE READING
