Predictors for Referral-Warranted ROP

RETINOPATHY OF PREMATURITY Serial opthalmologic examination is considered necessary to prevent ROP in preterm neonates. This observational study assessed demographic, medical, and ocular factors predicting referral-warranted ROP among ELBW neonates. While several significant factors predicting RW-ROP were identified, additional studies are necessary to confirm these findings before modifying opthalmological surveillance practices in ELBW neonates.
