Frequency of Retinopathy of Prematurity in Premature Neonates with a Birth Weight below 1500 Grams and a Gestational Age <32 Weeks: A Study from a Tertiary Care Hospital in a Lower-Middle Income Country.
Advances in neonatal intensive care management of extremely premature infants in the developed world and now also in developing countries, has led to an increased survival and an increase risk of long term morbidities like retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).1 There are differing trends in the frequency and severity of ROP ranging from 10.5% to as high as 58%.2,3 In preterm neonates the development of any ROP is associated with both lower birth weight (BW) and lower gestational age (GA).4 There are various other risk factors for development of ROP which include neonatal sepsis, respiratory distress syndrome, anemia resulting in multiple blood transfusions and apnea of prematurity.5 ROP is considered as a preventable cause of blindness and therefore its screening is essential.
