Low GA (23-24 weeks, OR 11.6 (2.9, 47); 25-26 weeks, 8.1 (2.1, 32)) and severe growth restriction (birth weight Z-score <-2, OR 9.1 (1.1, 76)) were associated with increased risk of pre-threshold ROP. A sample defined by B. Wt. has an excess of gestationally-older, SGA newborns. Conclusion: In this sample, low GA and severe growth restriction were associated with increased risk of pre-threshold ROP.
