Factors influencing mortality and morbidity after clinically apparent intraventricular haemorrhage.
  1. R O Robinson,

    Twenty newborn infants with clinically apparent intraventricular haemorrhage were studied in order to determine the factors associated with mortality and morbidity. Ten survived, 4 without handicap and 2 with only moderate handicap. Maturity and not size of haemorrhage appeared to be the main factor affecting mortality and morbidity at 1 year. Coma longer than 24 hours after intraventricular haemorrhage distinguished survivors with handicap from those without and may be a useful prognostic sign.
