- Brief summaryPreterm infants born before 32 weeks of gestation are called high risk preterm infants (HRPI) and are known to be at high risk for growth and neuro-developmental disorders. Adequate catch up growth has a beneficial effect on developmental outcome. "Too much"catch up growth might lead to an increased risk for developing the metabolic syndrome. Perinatal risk facors that influence neurodevelopmental outcome in HRPI have been studied extensively.

Low risk preterm infants (LRPI) born between 32 and 36 weeks of gestation have not been studied extensively, but a subgroup of these LRPI might be at an increased risk of developing growth and neurodevelopmental disorders as well. Which perinatal risk factors influence the neurodevelopmental outcome and growth of LRPI is not known.

We will assess perinatal and postnatal risk factors, (including pregnancy and medication mother) growth parameters and neurodevelopmental outcome in HRPI and LRPI compared to controls.

We will also study the efficacy of a modified version of the Dutch Van Wiechen Developmental screenings test to identify preterm infants at a young age who are at high risk of neurodevelopmental problems at school age.
