In this observational study performed in a large cohort of very preterm singletons, respiratory outcome was found to be strongly dependent on the cause of premature delivery. Although less apparent in infants born to mothers with chorioamnionitis, exposure to antenatal glucocorticoids remained significantly associated with a decrease in the incidence of respiratory distress syndrome after adjustment for the main cause of premature birth.
- AG, antenatal glucocorticoid
- BPD, bronchopulmonary dysplasia
- IUGR, intrauterine growth restriction
- RDS, respiratory distress syndrome
- bronchopulmonary dysplasia
- premature birth
- respiratory distress syndrome
