Example text

Studies from Lund in southern Sweden show a sharp decline in neurological sequelae in surviving infants. Ingemarsson et al. (1981), as shown in Table 1, found that, with improved obstetrical and neonatal care, the number of infants with neurological sequelae after at least 14 months was reduced from 1973-1974 to 1977-1979 from 25 to three, respectively. A more recent study, also from Lund (Westgren et al. 1985), reports on infants born before the 33rd week of gestation. Of the total of 108 infants, 83 survived at least 2 years after birth.

JAMA 251: 1843-1848 Thiringer K, Kankkunen A, Liden G, NikIasson A (1984) Perinatal risk factors in the aetiology of hearing loss in preschool children. ROOTH There is considerable concern amongst both laymen and doctors that the increased care of the small infants leads to increases in mental retardation and cerebral palsy. Results such as those described by Stewart (this volume) are clearly against this hypothesis, but there are three reasons for them: 1. The lower the birthweight, the higher the risk of cerebral lesions which increases with the degree of prematurity 2.

8) Henderson et aJ. 0 (all complications) a higher risk in the California cohort of Van den Berg and Yerushalmy (1969), in which cerebral palsy was not commented on. In summary, the birthweight data do not suggest that either the antecedents of low birthweight or the perinatal vulnerability of the small infant contribute much to the risk of epilepsy in the absence of frank neurological damage. Parturition Factors close to and around parturition again seem to contribute little to the risk for epilepsy (Table 6).
