    Dear Dr. Degraeuwe,

    We thank you very much for your question and we would appreciate having the opportunity to share the full results of the regression analyses for our 3 outcomes: neurodevelopmental impairment, significant neurodevelopmental impairment and significant neurodevelopmental impairment or death. The omission of this information was due solely to the manuscript restrictions on words and tables. We agree with you that this information is useful. As we are not able to provide tables in an e-letter, we would be happy to share this information via e-mail with any interested reader.

    Sincerely,

    Anne Synnes, MDCM, MHSC, FRCPC
    Neonatologist, BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre,

    Logistic regression equation and (co)variance matrix for estimating developmental outcome in very preterm infants

    Neonatal health-care providers have the duty to fully inform parents about the prognosis of their sick, extremely preterm infant. Prognostication is however difficult since survival and long-term outcome are multifactorially influenced, and the quality of prognosis research is often poor. [1] By reporting "Determinants of developmental outcomes in a very preterm Canadian cohort" [2], Synnes et al. extend the previous wor...
