Adults who were born preterm with a very low birth weight reported a similar health-related quality of life to their term-born peers



Adults who were born preterm with a very low birth weight reported a similar health-related quality of life to their term-born peers



Acta Paediatrica 107(2): 354-357



Approximately 1% of European infants are born preterm with a very low birth weight (VLBW) of less than 1,500g and the first babies born at the threshold of viability who received modern neonatal intensive care are now adults. While most live healthy lives, average VLBW adults tend to have more neurodevelopmental disabilities, lower educational achievement and higher rates of chronic conditions (1). Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is defined as a construct of physical, mental and social wellbeing. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
