Germinal matrix microvascular maturation correlates inversely with the risk period for neonatal intraventricular hemorrhage.

Abstract

The risk period for intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) of the preterm neonate is the first 3-4 postnatal days. For infants of < 34 weeks' gestation, this risk period is independent of gestational age. We hypothesized that this risk period is attributable to the perinatal induction of maturation of the germinal matrix microvasculature and tested this… (More)
