Inhaled and systemic steroid exposure and neurodevelopmental outcome of preterm neonates

Edmond N. Kelly, Vibhuti S. Shah, Jody Levenbach, Michael Vincer, Orlando DaSilva & Prakesh S. Shah
Objectives: To compare death and/or neurodevelopmental outcomes of preterm infants exposed to inhaled and/or systemic steroids with those without exposure, and examine the impact of timing of exposure. Methods: Retrospective study of infants born <29 weeks gestation and assessed at 18–21 months corrected age (CA). Neurodevelopmental impairment (NDI) was defined as any Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development-III (BSID-III) score <85, cerebral palsy ≥ grade one, and visual or hearing impairment. Significant NDI (sNDI) was defined...
