原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)This study examined the factors associated with the development of periventricular hemorrhage (PVH) in black low-birth weight infants from a disadvantaged community. In addition, the use of drugs as a preventive strategy for the development of PVH was addressed. A total of 177 babies weighing less than 1.5 kg were studied. Eighty (45.2%) were found to have PVH. Grade I PVH was diagnosed in 33 (41.3%), grade II in 37 (46.3%) and grade III in 10 (12.4%) of the babies studied. The overall mortality was 32% (57/177). Mortality of babies with grade I was 33% (11/33), grade II 63% (22/35) and 70% (7/10) for grade III. In those with normal scans the mortality was 18% (17/96). Babies with a lower weight had the severer grade of PVH ( P < 0.05). Univariate analyses suggested that...
