Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is one of the most common sequelae in premature infants who survive after prolonged mechanical ventilation. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial and includes prematurity, perinatal infections, pulmonary volutrauma, oxygen toxicity, and increased pulmonary blood flow due to patent ductus arteriosus. It is characterized by chronic respiratory failure with abnormalities in lung function that can persist into adulthood. This is due to severe alterations in lung development characterized by decreased alveolar and capillary formation plus emphysema, fibrosis, and airway obstruction in more severe cases. The prevention of BPD is based on the avoidance of all the factors that are implicated in its pathogenesis.
