AIMA clinical study with retrospective analysis of 10 eyes of 5 babies with APROP of birth weight 970 to 1420 grams, Gestational age 26 to 32weeks, from a Level 3 NICU with multiple risk factors. RESULTFlat neovascularisation was seen in 8 eyes in zone 1, one eye in zone 2. One eye showed a large vascular loop in zone 2.3 babies with APROP had very low gestation age 1250gms& Gestational age greater than32weeks. CONCLUSIONHigher birth weight and gestational age babies with multiple risk factors also need to be viewed with suspicion for APROP.
