OBJECTIVE In very preterm infants, there is a high risk for impaired kidney function; therefore, access to normal ranges of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) for age and definition of a reliable normal range of glomerular clearance is essential. Despite this, updated GFR reference values for use in clinical practice are not available. The objective of this study was to determine GFR reference values in very preterm infants aged 27 to 31 weeks' gestation. METHODS This was a multicenter… CONTINUE READING
