AIMS Pre-term birth affects 10-12% of live births and occurs when the myocardium is still developing; therefore, the final structure of the myocardium could be altered. We hypothesized that, in response to pre-term birth, structural remodelling occurs within the myocardium which enables the immature heart muscle to adapt to the haemodynamic transition at birth but results in persistent alterations in its structure. Our objective was to determine how pre-term birth alters the final structure of… CONTINUE READING
