Abstract

Background: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), a potentially blinding disease, affects preterm infants. High levels of oxygen saturation are a well-known risk factor for ROP. Objectives: To assess the frequency of ROP type 1 needing treatment after improved oxygen monitoring (2011) in a Mexican preterm population selected for WINROP analyses and to retrospectively revalidate WINROP, an online surveillance system identifying infants at risk of developing ROP type 1. Methods: Preterm infants born with birth weight (BW) < 1,750 g and/or at gestational age (GA) <= 34 weeks, screened for ROP in 2012-2014 at the Hospital Civil de Guadalajara, Mexico were included (n = 151). Eighty-five infants with GA < 32 weeks qualified for WINROP analyses. GA, BW, maximal ROP stage, ROP treatment and weekly weights were recorded. The results in the present study were compared to those of a previous WINROP study in the same hospital (2005-2010; n = 352). Results: In the present WINROP cohort, 11.8% of the infants born at GA < 32 weeks received treatment compared to 51.0% of the infants in the previous WINROP cohort. One infant (3%) born at GA >= 32 weeks received treatment during the present study period compared to 35.6% during the previous period. WINROP displayed 80.0% sensitivity in infants born at GA < 32 weeks in the present study compared to 84.7% in the previous study. Conclusions: Uncontrolled oxygen supplementation is the major risk factor for severe ROP in infants born at GA >= 32 weeks. After improved oxygen monitoring, the frequency of ROP treatment was dramatically reduced at the Hospital Civil de Guadalajara, Mexico. (C) 2016 S. Karger AG, Basel.
