Abstract

Intra-uterine growth restriction (IUGR) is an important cause for prematurity as well as a significant risk factor for neurodevelopmental deficits. In this study, we aimed to examine the association between IUGR and early brain injury on neonatal cranial ultrasound in preterm infants. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study examined the relationship between IUGR and neonatal cranial ultrasound findings in preterm infants
