女子怀孕八次才生下的早产儿 竟患有视网膜病变  日前,河南一医院成功为一患视网膜病变的早产儿实施手术。目前该院已成功完成多例这样的手术,最小的孩子仅30周的胎龄。  经过了六次流产,一次夭折,好不容易迎来第8次怀孕,但是刚过27周,胎儿就出现缺氧迹象,剖宫产手术后,这名早产儿在当地新生儿重症监护室抢救,虽然保住了性命,孩子很快却被查出患有严重的早产儿视网膜病变,面临着双目失明的危险。几乎崩溃的夫妇俩找到了河南省立眼科医院。   金学民教授介绍说,早产、低体重、吸氧都有可能导致一个严重的问题,那就是眼底血管异常增生。增生的血管会慢慢把视网膜拖拽下来,如果不及时进行人工干预,任其发展,孩子就会因视网膜病变而双目失明。  经过学科专家团队的积极协作,共同努力,孩子的视网膜得到了保护。  据悉,“早产儿视网膜病变”一直是全世界儿童眼科学界的难题。金学民教授提醒,早筛查、早发现、早治疗这三步能最大限度地降低早产儿视网膜病变的失明率。(郑州晚报)相关的主题文章:
