  1. Prenatal magnesium sulfate exposure and the risk for cerebral palsy or mental retardation among very low-birth-weight children aged 3 to 5 years.

    Article - En anglais


    - To examine the relationship between prenatal magnesium sulfate exposure and the risk for cerebral palsy (CP) or mental retardation (MR) among very low-birth-weight (VLBW ;<1500 g) children.

    Secondarily, to investigate the effect of prenatal magnesium sulfate exposure on VLBW infant mortality.


    - Cohort study with follow-up to 1 year of age ; a subset followed up to 3 to 5 years.


    - Twenty-nine Georgia counties, including the 5-county Atlanta metropolitan area.


    - All VLBW births (N=1097) occurring during 2 years (1986-1988) ; all metropolitan Atlanta VLBW neonates who survived infancy (N=519).

    Main Outcome Measures

    - Infant mortality as determined from vital statistics records.

    Development of CP or MR by 3 to 5 years of age among metropolitan Atlanta VLBW survivors as determined from the Metropolitan Atlanta Developmental Disabilities Surveillance Program.


    - For the entire cohort, there was no association between prenatal magnesium sulfate exposure and infant mortality (adjusted rate ratio, 1.02 ; 95% confidence interval [Cl], 0.83-1.25).

    Among Atlanta-born survivors, those exposed to magnesium sulfate had a lower prevalence of CP or MR than those not exposed (CP : magnesium sulfate, 0.9%, no magnesium sulfate, 7.7%, crude odds ratio [OR], 0.11,95% CI, 0.02-0.81 ; MR : magnesium sulfate, 1.8%, no magnesium sulfate, 5.8%, crude OR, 0.30,95% CI, 0.07-1.29).
