Background.: Early identification of motor dysfunction in very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) preterm infants is important in order to provide early intervention. Objective.: This study was to examine the motor trajectories of VLBW preterm infants during their first year of life and to investigate the predictive ability and influencing factors of the trajectories. Design and Methods.: A total of 342 VLBW preterm infants were prospectively assessed for motor development by the Alberta Infant Motor Scales at 4, 6, 9 and 12 months and for developmental outcomes using the Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development- second edition at 24 months...

Teleophthalmology is a developing field that presents diverse opportunities. One of its most successful applications to date has been in pediatric retinal disease, particularly in screening for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Many studies have shown that using telemedicine for ROP screening allows a remote ophthalmologist to identify abnormal findings and implement early interventions. Here, we review the literature on uses of telemedicine in pediatric retinal disease and consider future applications.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a leading cause of vision loss with retinal vascular leakage and/or neovascularization. Current antiangiogenic therapy against vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has limited efficacy. In this study, we applied a new technology of comparative ligandomics to diabetic and control mice for the differential mapping of disease-related endothelial ligands. Secretogranin III (Scg3) was discovered as a novel disease-associated ligand with selective binding and angiogenic activity in diabetic but not healthy vessels...

Purpose: To investigate timing and risk factors of recurrent retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) after intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) monotherapy. Methods: Fifty eyes (the more severe eye) of 50 infants treated with IVR monotherapy for type 1 ROP were studied retrospectively. The mean follow-up time was 31 weeks after IVR. Recurrent ROP (recurrence of extraretinal fibrovascular proliferation [EFP]) was determined by RetCam wide-angle fundus imaging and binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy...

PURPOSE: The Colorado Retinopathy of Prematurity Screening Algorithm (CO-ROP) recommends screening for infants meeting the following criteria for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP): gestational age ≤30 weeks, birth weight of ≤1500 g, and net weight gain of ≤650 g between birth and 4 weeks of age. This study was performed to evaluate the validity of CO-ROP in a tertiary referral county hospital. METHODS: CO-ROP was used to retrospectively analyze the data from consecutive newborns screened for ROP using national screening guidelines at Parkland Hospital, Dallas, Texas, between April 1, 2009, to August 30, 2013...

BACKGROUND: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a vaso-proliferative disease of the eye, which mainly affects preterm newborn infants with an incompletely vascularized retina. The incidence of ROP has increased in industrialized countries due to the increased survival of extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants. ROP is also increasing in developing countries like Indonesia, where it is most likely due to the improved survival of ELBW infants. OBJECTIVE: To ascertain the incidence of ROP and possible risk factors associated with the development of ROP in preterm infants in Indonesia...

OBJECTIVE: We examined the morbidities and oxidative stress statuses in preterms receiving either SMOFlipid or ClinOleic. STUDY DESIGN: This observational study was performed in Etlik Zubeyde Hanim Hospital, Turkey. Infants received SMOFlipid (5 months) or ClinOleic (7 months). Two hundred and twenty seven infants (SMOFlipid: 93, ClinOleic: 134) very low birth weighted infants were included. The oxidative stress status was evaluated in infants at low risk of oxidative stress by total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and total oxidant status (TOS) and oxidative stress index (OSI; TAC/TOS/100) at baseline, first week and third week...

Although intravitreal injection of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents (IVA) can induce rapid regression of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), late reactivation of the ROP can occur in the form of tractional retinal detachment (TRD) from contracted recurrent extraretinal fibrovascular proliferation. The authors report a case of bilateral TRD for recurrent ROP in a 3-year-old, which is the latest-reported reactivation to date. The authors propose that persistent avascular retina in eyes that have undergone IVA for ROP receive laser ablation to prevent late recurrences...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of hemoglobin F (HbF) and hemoglobin A (HbA) levels on development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in premature infants. METHODS: In this prospective study, blood samples were collected from the side of the heel of 49 premature infants at postnatal months 0, 1, 2, and 3. HbF and HbA levels were measured in all samples and analyzed statistically. Furthermore, correlation analysis was performed regarding development of ROP, blood transfusion, and HbF and HbA levels...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the independent association between overnight or "off-peak" hour delivery and 3 neonatal morbidities strongly associated with childhood neurocognitive impairment. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective population based cohort study of all infants with birth weights of 500-1499 g born without severe congenital anomalies in California or Pennsylvania between 2002 and 2009. Off-peak hour delivery was defined as birth between 12:00 a.m. and 6:59 a.m. The study outcomes were death; bronchopulmonary dysplasia, retinopathy of prematurity, and severe (grade 3 or 4) intraventricular hemorrhage among survivors; the composite of each morbidity or mortality; and the composite of death or 1 or more of the evaluated morbidities...

BACKGROUND: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a vasoproliferative disease affecting premature babies and a major cause of blindness in childhood. Appropriate screening and treatment can prevent blindness. OBJECTIVE: To report on the efficacy of using antivascular endothelial growth factor (bevacizumab) as first-line therapy in ROP. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of patients with ROP treated at St John Eye Hospital, Johannesburg, South Africa, over a 3-year period...

PURPOSE: To assess the results of intravitreal ranibizumab treatment for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in infants. METHODS: A single-institution, retrospective consecutive case series. RESULTS: Thirty-one patients who received ranibizumab treatment for ROP were evaluated in this study. The mean follow-up time was 14 ± 1.37 months. Vascularization of the peripheral retina had completed with delay in the majority of cases and also avascular areas were present in the peripheral retinas of five infants at one year of age...

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to investigate peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFLT) in former preterm infants and full-term neonates using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS: The prospective, controlled, cross-sectional, hospital-based study in a tertiary centre with maximum care examined 503 infants with a former gestational age (GA) of ≥37 and ≤32 weeks now aged between 4 and 10 years. In total, we analysed 432 participants with successful circular peripapillary RNFLT OCT measurements...
