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. To minimize unnecessary screening procedures, which can be stressful for these fragile infants, it is important to identify new risk factors and predictors that better determine which infants are at high risk for ROP. The objective of this study was to investi... more
