Pakistan is a developing country and because treatment and screening programs for ROP
are not well developed and no large multicentre studies have been conducted, so exact incidence of ROP
in Pakistan is not estimated.
There was scarcity of research from Pakistan on ROP
and there is not much data about the prevalence of ROP
in newborn and its correlation with their gestational age and breast feeding.
He said Asim and others hijacked the essence of PWE and started to manipulate it through RoP
. We demand authorities to take immediate action against the offenders infringers, he said.
Ultra-wide-field imaging systems have brought about improvements in the management of ROP
. They are useful for visualizing and documenting retinal features and determining ROP
Binary logistic regression analysis was done to determine variables significant in predicting the development of severe ROP
. Unadjusted clinical variables were initially included in the regression model if they were significantly related to outcome and remained in the final model if they remained significant following adjustment for multiple variables (P < 0.05).
In group B, which consisted of infants who developed mild ROP
, the mean PMA of onset of ROP
was statistically different(P < 0.01,two-sidedindependent-samplesStudent's /-test) compared with group C (Table 1).
was staged according to the International Classification of Retinopathy of Prematurity (ICROP) .
We describe the challenges we faced and the successes we achieved with the development of a new ROP
clinic at Dora Nginza Hospital in Port Elizabeth, SA.
Data on ROP
across LAC countries were incomplete and only existed for certain cities (8-33).
(5-7) The global initiative for the elimination of avoidable blindness targets ROP
for prevention of blindness and treatment in an effort to reduce the prevalence of childhood blindness.
High oxygen support inhibits production of VEGF in animal models and affects vascular growth in the first phase of ROP
A third epidemic of ROP
is currently said to be occurring in middle-income countries  such as South Africa (SA).
