Neurodevelopment Impairment in the Majority of Extremely Preterm Infants with Short Bowel Syndrome

Link to article (paywall)/abstract: Neurodevelopmental and Growth Outcomes of Extremely Preterm Infants with Short Bowel Syndrome

Key finding from study:

  • Moderate-severe neurodevelopmental impairment was present in 77% of children with extreme prematurity and with short bowel syndrome compared to 44% with extreme prematurity without necrotizing enterocolitis, spontaneous intestinal perforation or short bowel syndrome. 

One of the authors, Ira Adams-Chapman, recently passed away (link to obituary: Ira Adams-Chapman, 1965-2020). She and I were residents together in Cincinnati. She was a terrific person.
