Does extreme prematurity affect kidney volume at term corrected age?
Objective. Extreme prematurity exposes the neonate to a number of potential renal insults that may result in a reduced number of glomeruli andor renal size. This may predispose these individuals to cardiovascular disease later in life. The objective was to determine using magnetic resonance imaging MRI whether extreme prematurity results in decreased renal volume. Methods. Neonates <29 weeks' gestation and term infants undergoing MRI of the brain were enrolled in the study. An MRI was performed...[Show more]
