Abstract

Intraventricular hemorrhage continues to be a major contributor to significant morbidity in surviving very low birth weight infants. It is not clear, whether ventriculomegaly that frequently follows severe IVH (grades III and IV) or the severity and the extent of the hemorrhage itself is responsible for the subsequent developmental sequelae.
