Objective: Severe abnormalities on cranial ultrasound images are important predictors of cerebral palsy (CP) and mental retardation; on the contrary, normal results on cranial echograms usually favor normal neurological outcomes. With the increased survival rates of very low birth weight (VLBW, birth weight <1500 g) premature infants, the prognoses of VLBW preterm infants with normal cranial ultrasound images requires investigation and this is the aim of this study. Methods: From February 1998… CONTINUE READING
