The aim of this study is to generate normal reference values of cerebral blood flow velocities (CBFV) and Doppler indices (DI) in the anterior (ACA) and the middle (MCA) cerebral arteries during the first month of life in "healthy" preterm infants. CBFV were obtained with color Doppler technique in seventy selected preterm infants divided in four groups of gestational age (GA) (25 to 28; 29 to 30; 31 to 32; 33 to 35 wk). Our data demonstrate that CBFV increase with rising GA, birth weight (BW) and postnatal age. Additionally, we can provide the median values, tenth and ninetieth percentiles of CBFV and DI, in the ACA and MCA in each GA group as reference normal values of CBFV and DI in preterm newborn.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to generate normal reference values of cerebral blood flow velocities (CBFV) and Doppler indices (DI) in the anterior (ACA) and the middle (MCA) cerebral arteries during the first month of life in "healthy" preterm infants. CBFV were obtained with color Doppler technique in seventy selected preterm infants divided in four groups of gestational age (GA) (25 to 28; 29 to 30; 31 to 32; 33 to 35 wk). Our data demonstrate that CBFV increase with rising GA, birth weight (BW) and postnatal age. Additionally, we can provide the median values, tenth and ninetieth percentiles of CBFV and DI, in the ACA and MCA in each GA group as reference normal values of CBFV and DI in preterm newborn.
