The chi square test was applied to determine the effect of breast milk for the development of ROP
Sample size of 375 children was calculated using 95% confidence interval, 5% margin of error and taking 58% estimated prevalence of ROP
.3 We had 428 preterm babies on our follow-up of ROP
program so we extended our sample and it was more than the calculated as we included all babies in our study.
In our patient, stage 3 ROP
was detected nasally in zone 2 with pre-plus disease using a binocular indirect ophthalmoscope at postmenstrual age of 41 weeks.
Of the 2791 infants included in the final analysis, 260 (9.3%) had severe ROP
. Out of the 1601 infants [greater than or equal to] 29 weeks only 11 infants (0.7%) had severe ROP
Two infants in group C were diagnosed with zone 1 stage 3 with plus ROP
at their first screening at PMA 31 weeks.
The primary exclusion criteria were cases where ROP
developed in newborns of more than 30 weeks of gestational age and the cases where medical notes were unavailable or incomplete.
A retrospective case folder review was conducted over the 6-year period 1 January 2009 - 31 December 2014 on all infants screened for ROP
. During this period, ROP
screening was managed according to the following guidelines:
A multi-country quantitative and qualitative online survey of medical and public health experts working on ROP
across the LAC region was carried out in 2015 to determine national ROP
incidence and the existence of national-level government inputs (existing national policies, guidelines, programs, and financing for ROP
prevention, detection, and treatment, including ROP
screening) in 2014.
In this institution based study, we try to estimate the incidence and severity of ROP
in various GA and BW and to analyse the correlation with the age at which laser is started (Laser Week) for severe ROP
and also the outcome of treatment.
In this study, we aimed to investigate the relation between IGF-1 levles measured on different days and ROP
in preterm babies carrying a risk of ROP
If screening programmes are not put in place, the incidence of blindness from untreated ROP
is likely to increase.
