BACKGROUND Advances in perinatal care have increased the number of premature babies who survive. There are concerns, however, about the ability of these children to cope with the demands of adulthood. METHODS We linked compulsory national registries in Norway to identify children of different gestational-age categories who were born between 1967 and 1983 and to follow them through 2003 in order to document medical disabilities and outcomes reflecting social performance. RESULTS The study… Expand

Long-term Consequences of Preterm Birth: Swedish National Cohort Studies
TLDR
The objective was to investigate the impact of preterm birth on social adjustment, mental health and asthma, and to find out whether children growing up in socially disadvantaged households, as expressed by low socioeconomic status, were more vulnerable to the effect of pre term birth on psychiatric morbidity. Expand
Gestational Age and Basic School Achievements: A National Follow-up Study in Denmark
TLDR
The risk of not completing basic school increased with decreasing gestational age, and the risk was moderate at ≥31 weeks' gestation and increased steeply at <31 weeks', which was only partly explained by cerebral palsy. Expand
Preterm birth and mortality in adulthood: a systematic review
  • C. Crump
  • Medicine
  • Journal of Perinatology
  • 2019
TLDR
The overall evidence indicates that premature birth during the past 50 years is associated with modestly increased mortality in early to mid-adulthood. Expand
Multidisciplinary guidelines for the care of late preterm infants
TLDR
The level and intensity of care provided should be based on ongoing assessment of the infant's physiological status and availability of services and personnel within the birthing facility, so that any needed interventions can occur quickly to prevent permanent consequences. Expand
Determinants of morbidity in late preterm infants.
TLDR
The risk for morbidity among late preterm infants, changes with each passing week of gestation, and seems to be intensified, when other exposures such as SGA, multiple gestation, emergency caesarean section, lack of antenatal steroid administration and antepartum haemorrhage are also present. Expand
Systematic assessment of perinatal and socio-demographic factors associated with IQ from childhood to adult life following very preterm birth
Abstract Objective To construct a comprehensive model of predictors of IQ and its developmental trajectories in survivors of very preterm birth from childhood to adult life. Methods We examinedExpand
Pregnancy complications among women born preterm
TLDR
Being born preterm, in addition to, and independent of, being small for gestational age, was associated with a significantly increased risk of later having pregnancy complications. Expand
Risk factors for cerebral palsy in term birth infants.
TLDR
It is confirmed that several antenatal, intrapartum and neonatal risk factors for CP in term birth infants contribute to the etiology of CP. Expand
Early and long-term outcome of infants born extremely preterm
TLDR
Literature relating to early and long-term neurodevelopmental, cognitive, behavioural and educational outcomes following EP birth is reviewed focusing on key themes and considering implications for intervention. Expand
Psychomotor Development of Children Born Premature at the Yaounde Gynaeco-Obstetric and Pediatric Hospital (Cameroon)
TLDR
The assessment of psychomotor development should be done until early childhood to enable early diagnosis of learning disabilities and improving perinatal care remains a preoccupying issue. Expand

The association of Apgar score with subsequent death and cerebral palsy: A population-based study in term infants.
TLDR
The strong association of low Apgar scores with death and CP in this population with a low occurrence of low scores shows that the Apgar score remains important for the early identification of infants at increased risk for serious and fatal conditions. Expand

Association of preterm birth with long-term survival, reproduction, and next-generation preterm birth.
TLDR
In persons born in Norway in 1967-1988, preterm birth was associated with diminished long-term survival and reproduction and Reproduction was diminished for index participants born preterm. Expand

TLDR
The intellectual and educational status of 108 children with very low birth weight, born from 1965 to 1978, was evaluated and tested on standard tests at 8 years of age and further evaluated at 11 years ofAge, finding the level of neonatal illness and parent education level strongly influenced the likelihood of outcome.

TLDR
This chapter critically evaluates the available neurodevelopmental and health outcomes of very premature infants from the developed world in an attempt to determine if there is evidence that long-term outcomes have improved with neonatal intensive care. Expand
Improved Neurodevelopmental Outcomes for Extremely Low Birth Weight Infants in 2000–2002
TLDR
A variety of perinatal and neonatal factors were associated with the improved outcomes including increased antenatal steroid use and cesarean section delivery, as well as decreased sepsis, severe cranial ultrasound abnormalities, and postnatal steroid use despite no change in the rate of chronic lung disease.

Outcomes in Young Adulthood for Very-Low-Birth-Weight Infants
TLDR
A cohort of 242 survivors among very-low-birth-weight infants born between 1977 and 1979 is compared with controls from the same population in Cleveland who had normal birth weights to assess the level of education, cognitive and academic achievement, and rates of chronic illness and risk-taking behavior at 20 years of age.

TLDR
The results from this study suggest that early screening for signs of autism may be warranted in this high-risk population followed by definitive autism testing in those with positive screening results. Expand
