The role of nutrition in promoting growth in pre-term infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia: A prospective non-randomised interventional cohort study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Background: Pre-term infants who develop bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) are at risk of postnatal growth failure. It has been reported that energy expenditure is higher in infants with BPD than in those without BPD. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether increasing the enteral energy intake of pre-term infants with BPD can improve post-natal growth.Methods: This prospective, non-randomised interventional cohort study was designed to assess growth in 57 preterm infants with BPD (gestational age
