    Abstract : Background: Improved neonatal care has resulted in an increasing population of surviving infants. Neonatal morbidity in preterm infants is, however, high, and retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is one of the major neonatal morbidities. READ MORE

  2. 2. Growth pattern and nutritional intake as predictors for retinopathy of prematurity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Background: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a sight-threatening disease that affects extremely preterm and very preterm infants. Approximately 5–10% of infants screened for ROP go on to develop severe ROP that requires treatment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental inhibition of proliferative retinopathy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Sylvia Almlöf Sarman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Retinal ischemic diseases like retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), diabetic retinopathy (DRP) and retinal vein occlusion, with preretinal neovascularization (angiogenesis) that may lead to vitreous hemorrhages and retinal detachment with subsequent vision loss and blindness is a global health problem. By analyzing the potential role of molecules acting at different levels of the angiogenic cascade the presented studies aimed to widen our understanding of retinal ischemic diseases on a molecular, cellular and morphologic level.

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : In a prospective population-based study in Stockholm County, 1998-2000, the incidence of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) was investigated and was found to be 36% in prematurely-born infants with a birth weight of ≤ 1500 grams. Compared to a study performed ten years ago, the overall incidence was unchanged, but was reduced in “mature” infants and increased in immature ones. READ MORE

    Abstract : In a prospective, population-based study of a weIl defined geographical area in Sweden, an ROP incidence of 40.4% was found among 260 prematurely born infants with a birth weight of 1500 grams or less. Cryotherapy was performed in 10.8% of the infants. READ MORE
