Title Hyperglycemia and periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage in the preterm infant
Date 1984-03
Description Periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage (PV-IVH) is a serious from of neonatal intracranial hemorrhage. This research was undertaken to determine the relationship between PV-IVH and hyperglycemia. Medical records of 57 preterm infants from the University of Utah Medical Center were examined. Data collected demonstrated a significant relationship between the occurrence of PV-IVH and hyperglycemia episode. The severity of hyperglycemia could not predict the development hydrocephalus. It was concluded that the clinical value of glucose determinations may serve to identify a PV-IVH. Further research is indicated to validate these findings and to define the specifics of the relationship between these variables.
