Neurologic sequelae in the survivors of neonatal intraventricular hemorrhage.


Journal Article

We report our experience with the neurologic sequelae (at a mean follow-up of 24 months) among the 15 surviving infants who have had neonatal intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) documented by computerized tomographic (CT) brain scan. Neurologically six infants (40%) are normal, six infants (40%) mildly impaired, and three infants (20%) moderate to severely impaired. The neurologic outcome correlated to the degree of hemorrhage seen in the CT scans when IVH was classified into four grades. None of the other neonatal factors examined showed significant correlation with the outcome.
