    The first 24 hours of a preterm infant's life is often a period of cardiovascular instability. A complex relationship exists between the heart, brain and systemic and cerebral vasculature and in the immediate neonatal period in which low blood pressure, low systemic blood flow and low cerebral...

    Background: Surgical ligation of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is widely practised in preterm infants despite no clear evidence that this improves outcomes. Geographical isolation meant that ductal ligation was not an option in King Edward Memorial Hospital until recently. Objective: A...

    Background: The incidence of preterm meconium staining of the amniotic fluid (MSAF) is uncertain. It may be an indicator of possible listeriosis. It is unclear how great this risk is or whether preterm MSAF is a risk factor for adverse neonatal outcome. Objective: To investigate the incidence of...

    Background: Intracranial haemorrhage (ICH) in term newborns has been increasingly recognised but the occurrence in late preterm infants and the clinical presentation are still unclear. Objective: To investigate the appearance of intracranial haemorrhage at MRI in a cohort of infants born at 34...

    Seizures are one of the common symptoms seen in preterm infants. It occurs in 6% to 13% of very low birth weight infants, and in 1to 2 per 1,000 of infants born at term [1, 2, 3]. Sonography of the brain also known as neurosonogram is proved diagnostic modality to evaluate intracranial...
