Analysis of Millions of U.S. Births Shows Association Between Birth Defects and Preterm Birth
Date:5/20/2008

sociation was strongest among very preterm babies," said Joann Petrini, Ph.D., MPH, director of the March of Dimes Perinatal Data Center, who also co-authored the study. "This study highlights the importance of understanding the possible shared causes and risk factors that lead to preterm birth among those infants affected by major birth defects."

Very preterm babies, those born between 24 and 31 weeks gestation, were five times as likely as full-term infants to have a birth defect. The most common birth defects for this group were central nervous system defects, such as spina bifida, and cardiovascular defects, such as a hole in the heart.

"The Association Between Major Birth Defects and Preterm Birth" by Honein, et al. was published online this week at:
